View Full Version : [Commission] Post-apocalyptic Louisianal map

This is a work-in-progress of my current commission, a series of post-apocalyptic maps focused on New Orleans.

I'm pretty happy with how the grungy textures of the "paper" turned out. There are about six layers that make up the texture.

I have more geographic features to add, more labels, a key, roads, may do something else with the border, and may still rework the rivers yet.

Looks great so far. Julie is very pleased with what she is seeing. :) I see what you meant though now about Mississippi being empty looking. But we can probably use that space to put the key. Maybe I'll do a little research and see if there is anything in that area we should add just to fill it out a bit.

I made some progress on this today. Put the interstates in, did some more labeling, and found a forest style I am happy with.

I love it, the map has a great feel to it and like above I really enjoy how you did the forest.

Did you use a data set for the coastline?

12-14-2011, 11:41 PM
Nope, just used a satellite photo as reference.

Really nicely done. I like it.

Btw, if it's settled in future. Maybe the Mississippi Delta would have change a bit ? Wouldn't it ? :)

I really like your selection of colors. How did you get them to have that nice smoked look?
