View Full Version : Second attempt to a world map

Hi to all.

Someone might remember me because of an old map I started and never finished (cannot found the thread). These weeks I finished writing some short novels, in a fantasy world setting. It is all about seas, oceans and overall it's just like the movie Waterworld (a lot of water :P).

Anyway, I started yesterday to make this map. I made non visible the text layer, just because a lot of names are in my language. A friend of mine said it is nice and clean, a simple style and it isn't too much complicated. I just want more critiques and opinions: what do you think?

Obviously it's not finished yet. I want to know what do you think about the terrain style and the symbols placing.

As everytime I'm sorry for my poor english. Here's the map.

Goodbye! :)

yep, it is very clean.

I think that the symbols could do with a bit more variety; maybe put a few different mountain symbols.

looks pretty good though.

Do you think I should use more variety of symbols?

Thanks for the tip :p Basically I need simple brushes: mountains, hills and trees. I start to search some good ones.

Will upload the next version in some days.

Before doing the map in symbols, I tried some experiments with some good filters in Photoshop. Here is what I got.
