here's my entry from the July Challenge. I finished third, which was a lot better than i was expecting. the challenge theme was cloud, and the map outline is the result of a threshold layer on a base cloud image i found on google.

The rest is just a plethora of lines made using the pen tool and stroking (hehe) in black over a white backgoroung and then a spatter brush style effect with a small (0.3) gaussian blue on top. the whole thing was then set to multiply over the map texture i made, with further eraser/brush grungeing added on top.

in hindsight there are some things id change, like the pen-strokes and lettering, though considering the time i was allowed on this Im pretty happy with the result, and the simplistic and relatively realistic 16th-ish century style (in the vein of the many many maps made of my home country of Malta) is something ive been wanting to try fork some time

Lovely work on this V, it was one of my top picks from last month's competition.
