View Full Version : Weekend Project: Two maps of Taerth

I've lurked for a while now, and I have to say there's a lot of helpful content.

This is a pretty broad overview map of an entire, and very large, continent. You can see that I drew some borders in it (Which are shown very faintly), just to suggest the various polities and regions that make up the continent.

While this is based on a randomly-generated coastline generated from cloud noise, I eventually did the coastline forms over again entirely on Photoshop. After some time hand-drawing coastline features (I use a Wacom tablet), I then drew the topographical features (Since this is a weekend project, I went with a look that I could produce quickly - no time to draw iconography here). I moved over to Illustrator to add in graphical elements and text (The font used is one of the Fell Type Revival (http://iginomarini.com/fell/the-revival-fonts/) fonts, which are simply beautiful). Then, back to Photoshop for a final adjustments.

I like it! The contrast of the deep blue and tan works very well.

I like the colour choices too, and the map is nice and clear. It looks great for a quick weekend project.

Your link didn't work so I had to look up the fell type revival fonts. Did you mean to link to this site here (http://iginomarini.com/fell/the-revival-fonts/)? Because those are very pretty.

Oops, yes. I corrected the OP with the right URL.
