Hi, just finished a map for the continent of Tharstelding, which is part of the Draconspire Campaign setting for Pathfinder. This is a commissioned piece and copyrighted. You can find details on the campaign world at PathfinderDB.com (http://pathfinderdb.com/campaign-worlds/draconspire). Cheers, DJ

Beautiful as always.

Love the colours. Love the sea especially. I'm having a little trouble reading the river and lake labels, but I'd guess that comes from the standard tension of drawing a beautiful map and then not wanting to cover it all in text :)

Great stuff - and repped. Nice logo too by the way.

Thanks man! the map size is A3 (about double letter size, so about twice the on-screen size as the map shown) and the labels were created to be readable at that size. But indeed labelling maps always is a tricky job for me (still need to improve on that). I didn't think about it but it's good idea indeed to have labels readable at half-size format at 100dpi as well. Btw, I didn't make the logo but it looks good I agree. cheers, DJ

Okay - on an A3 map that will read beautifully. No need to worry about it being tricky at half scale - I can still read it which is great!

That is beyond awesome. I'd like to live in your head for a couple of hours and get me some of that talent. :D

Sweet weasels that's awesome! Dig the whole thing..very artsy which I like.

I also like the way the main landmass doesn't fill the entire map....or in other words they layout. Great job DJ.

edit:rats, I can't rep you either...have to go spread some more love.
