Something I did just for the fun of it, since I had a couple of free days this week. It seems like I remember 'Eos' being the name of some other map or game world or something, but I can't remember if that's actually the case or not. If it is, my bad.

The mountain brushes are part of a set I found here at the Guild, but I don't recall who posted them. I believe he/she is German though, since the brushes are named in German. :D The font is AVQuest, that pseudo-Diablo font I love so much.

Looks really nice there D. Your borders are very unique. Kudos.

It's a really nice map!
I like the political frontiers, how do you made them?

If you mean the dashed black lines, I just drew in the borders with a round/hard 4 pixel brush, then went back and erased (with the same brush) chunks of it. Time consuming, but I think it looks cool.

If you mean the colored areas, that's pretty easy, actually. I created a new layer for each color, drew over each area I wanted to have that particular color with a large brush, then set the base layer (my original white continents) as a selection, inversed, expand a couple of pixels (to take into account the stroke around the landmasses), and delete. Then I set the fill of the layer to 0%, and added an inner glow (Normal setting/about 70% opacity/size 40px).

Very nice, as usual, Diamond :)

Huh, I just realized that I may have inadvertently stole the name of your map for one of the regional names in my Eriond map. Wasn't intentional I assure you, just probably got lodged in my sub-conscious. Probably not a big deal but if you want me to change it I'll do so.

Cheers,

That's nothing, I made a map one time and named one of the cities Ramah ;)

Not a big deal at all. Like I said, I think I may have inadvertently stolen the name from something else myself, so...

I liked that one, I just have to say that the way you used to make the forest is new for me (at least I think the darker areas are forest '-').

Anyway, great job, :)

Yeah, they're forests. Not the greatest looking ones, in my opinion, but meh. :D

Very cool, inspirational map. Man I gotta stop lurking here and get to work. Addictive.
