View Full Version : [WIP] world for Dominium

03-02-2012, 06:54 PM
Hello all,

Some of my friends and I are working on a project on the game Minecraft, we are making a RP medieval/fantasy server. And because we want a complete server, therefore we need a map!
But not only a map of the world, but also a map for the different regions that compose the world.
So I'm going to do it!

Following is a rough of the future map I'm planning to do


Because it's my first map, I'll be happy to get some input from you all (maybe concerning the placing of the different elements, or how to make it more "realistic")
Oh yes, I forgot something.
The style of the map is something based on Sinisteria http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?8846-Lands-Of-Sinisteria
But off course I'm not willing to have such a good result for now (I'm really not skilled like he does, and mostly concerning the general balance of the map, and also the colors that makes a lot for me).

Thanks all

Edit 1: Ok, that's a long time I've not worked on a map, but I've started a regional map (because it's more "urgent" for the game), and...well just see what I'm willing to do :


and what I've done so far :

This is a great start. You obviously have some talent for drawing, which helps considerably. Now you just have to polish it up with some CG painting techniques. Here's some useful tutorials. http://10steps.sg/tutorials/photoshop/33-digital-painting-tutorials/ They all can be applied in some way to map making.
