View Full Version : Long time no mapping - portolan/map thingy

06-12-2012, 08:18 AM
Hi there fellow cartographers! It's been quite a while since I had time for doing maps, but now it's time to get at it once more. My plan for this one is a hand drawn portolan style map, but we'll see where it takes me.

Done so far is the outline of the area covered, I used an ordinary mercator projetion on a part of my conworld, and then drew something completely different to get that old 'no-access-to-modern-gps'-feel.

Looks like a good start. :)

Yup, looks promising. Welcome back Andartar.

Looking good so far! A small request though: upload a png or a jpg for the next update? The bmp doesn't want to open in my browser for some reason.

A small update, it's getting there! Mountains and some colour done, next step is rivers and lakes. Then it's on to cities.

Thanks for the feedback!

Looks great. Reminds me of old Chinese maps.
