Hi every one, it's been a long time since my last visit!
Not that I forgot about map making, but I was quite busy with university, but well I continued my quest of making some kind of realistic photorealistic view of a world map.
I ended up with something good -I think-, so I came to show off =).

So here's what I've been working on:

I called it Tyball (well I didn't really have a name in my pocket for it so i just punched some letter on the keyboard without any further intentions)
I first got the map using fractal terrains: so I ended with this

Well not much to be proud of here, just something computer generated, but I like the shape!

Then I started messing aroud with giving it a good texture, so I took some earth pictures and played with photoshop and it gave that:

I also did a drawn map version of it

So guys what do you think of it?

I really like the artsy version the best. I tend to like the stuff that I can't do myself all that well.
