Testing a 'new' style/technique. The symbols were painted before and placed with the clone stamp tool. This allows rather fast mapping.

Done in PS

That's a great looking result. How do you get the z-ordering of the trees right - do you have a separate layer (or doc?) with the different symbols in?

Thank you, Jon! I put all symbols on one layer first by duplicating the originals into the new document and extending the work space to one side. When I've finished the positioning I crop the image to the necessary size.


Excellent as usual. :)

Thank you!

I really love the map but the labeling doesn't match with the over all look in my opinion.

Beautiful work! I love the teal colour for the oceans; I am thinking I will need to do the same with my project now! I really love the runes and watermarks in the top left hand corner too

I love the colours and style - has a nice "soft" look (can't think of a better way to describe it). The mountains are great.
I agree with geamon thought - I think the labels don't quite match. Maybe a more handwritten look (or just a more "inky" colour text) would fit the style better.

Thank you, guys!

Well, the labels were just put there to finish the map. I didn't pay much attention to it as the most important part for this style test are the map symbols. I could probably found have a better font.

Figured it was more of an after thought (didn't wanna phrase it that way for fear of offending :) ). No worries the style is good though.

Geamon, you would have to say much worse things to offend me! ;-)

Not one of my favorites by you, but well done none-the-less. :)
