Hey,

old map, new style. I thought, while I was erasing some names that do not longer fit into my world-concept, I could bury the map for a few years in the earth and see, what will come out. Okay, I didn't really bury the map, but doesn't it look like I did?

Looks awesome. It really does look like this map has survived the Roman Empire or something.

Very nice and persuasive! You could tatter the edges just a bit more, though—they're very sharp considering the distress of the surface of the paper.

looks great... I first thought it was painted on wood - but seing the missing pieces here and there I revised my opinion to paper.. thus I agree with Midgard, that a little more ruffling of the feathe... edges would be nice :)

Hey,

thanks guys. I have followed your words and frayed the edges around. I also added a light shadow there.

I took an interesting texture from cgtextures.com (Concrete -> Bunker Wall -> Damaged for example) and put it above the map (blendmode: lighten). I put the visible on a new layer (Shift + Alt + Ctrl + E), deleted the texture layer, added a mask and painted out the areas I wanted to look cracked and buried with a soft brush on low opacity. I did this with two different textures, so it turned out quite nice.
