View Full Version : Bydeang World Map - Parchment

I've made several reference maps for my geofiction project, but this is the first one I feel like showing off.

I made the world in Fractal Terrains Pro, exported the images and did the rest in Photoshop Elements 9.

I used some of RPGMapMaker's free brushes (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?2078-RPGMapMaker-s-Free-Brush-Packs-(PS7)&highlight=free+photoshop+brushes) and the parchment texture moutarde posted. (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?13439-Hi-res-parchment-texture)

I haven't put in river or lake names yet. I'm also not too happy about the city distribution. I only included the world's cities with a population of 25,000 or more, and this leaves huge expanses of bare land.
