View Full Version : Galleon/Transport Ship [Battlemap]

Created In:
Adobe Fireworks CS5
Using clip art adn textures from ProFantasy Campaign Cartographer 3

Artist's Notes:
I've never done a ship before... Almost all of my maps up to now have been tactical maps but of encounters on solid ground.

I took the opportunity to experiment with some additional effects, such as the lighting around the candelabra or the long shadows from the two masts.

Not counting the individual clip art elements, it's entirely made up of vector (the walls, the weapons) and component bitmaps (clip art from CC3) within Adobe Fireworks CS5 (part of the Adobe CS5 Master Suite).

For those that don't know me, I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not an artist... I can't draw a decent circle at gunpoint. What I am apparently good at is moving clip art around, adding an effect here and there and things like that. This map probably took longer than it would have had an actual artist done it.

Nice boat NH. It's clean and well mapped. Definitely a good first ship.
