View Full Version : Your favourite map by a non-CG mapper?

Hey all,

As a map-addict, i return to the CG daily to look for new contributions. Every now and then, i start a search through the rest of the i-net for great looking maps. Deviant-Art is also a very nice place to look for map artists. But Google-searches also turn up a lot of results.

Well, long story, short : I thought we could collect in this thread maps from all over the i-net that have captured our eyes and that are from folks who are not already CG members. I know sometimes we might show a map from someone already on CG but who uses a different name elsewhere but who cares :D ;)

So, show me your favourite non-CG maps!

I'll start:

Seriously? No other "great maps outside the CG community"?! I can't believe it! I am sure you have tons of stuff in your inspiration folders that is not from here.

Show it to us, we want to see :D

The rivers are all kinds of messed up on that one, but it's still pretty. :D

I'm kind of partial to this one (http://www.savageearth.net/Merikia.jpg), this one (http://paulgorman.org/roleplaying/dnd/dwarf-land/dwarf-land-map.png), and especially this one (http://jocarra.deviantart.com/art/The-Lost-World-Paruda-Map-114497940).

Thanks, Diamond!

Over 200 views and only one reply? Well, i am disappointed in you, CG...for the first time ;)
So you guys are saying that all your favourite maps are from here? Or are you all just too lazy? :P

Well, speaking for myself, slammed as I am at the moment, I'd rather spend my time making a new map than looking for external links to others. This is the sort of activity that I would get involved in if I had the time to track down where certain entries in my inspiration folder came from (a lot of times the title isn't exactly clear as to who did it. There's a lesson there for us artists who post on the net regarding the titles we put on things).

Honestly, I can't even keep up with what's going on here. If I do happen to have some lounge time I might post a link or two but most of my favorites are from here anyway.

I have always been inspired by those for as a modern style of maps and city plans...
