This one was a monster to do. The original file is 15300 x 12900 pixels at 300 dpi. During the creation process I was several times forced to merge layers, because I surpassed Photoshop's file size limit of 2 GB when I tried saving. I have a PC which is eight month old and even this one had hard to work on this.

Done in PS.

Very impressive! Is all that yellowish-brown land supposed to be desert?

Nicely done, Sapiento - love the mountains, I've been trying to get something similar to that look for a while but haven't quite managed.

Thank you all.

The yellow is desert, yes.


nice :) But why so big? :Pd

The size was necessary as certain parts of the map are extremely detailed (during drawing it came down to a few pixels sometimes).

The technique is similar to Pasis' moutains technique.

Sapiento - For future reference, Photoshop has a special file format for XL images: I believe it is the .psb file type, or "Photoshop Large Document Format." It takes that 2GB cap off and keeps everything separated out like a .psd.

Thank you, RE.
Yes, it's the .psb file format. I got a hint to this yesterday on my dA site. Maybe I should have done some research if 2 GB is really the limit.

You might hate me if you didn't already know this, but Photoshop has a file type called PSB "big file format." It allows for saving way past the limit.

//edit: Woops! Didn't see you'd already found out about this.

Coastlines of continents and ilands looks very realistic (as whole geography). Also I love crater in the north - all this tiny details give soul to fantastic worlds. Nice work!
