Finally I can call this one finished. This is a relatively sparsely populated land where people are settled mostly by the sea. This map will be used in our RPG and therefore I wanted to limit the number of visible places of interest.
The attached image is a low resolution version, but I will attach full res pieces later.
Here is the link to the WIP

Stunning! Extremely realistic and absolutely beautiful.
How many hours did you spend on this?

Wonderful map, great detail! Is it me or does it look like an elephant's head?

Thanks guys!!!

@ Key: I haven't counted the hours, but must be over 100. I'm quite slow what comes drawing maps, so there might be even more...
@ Bogie: Yes it does look an elephant's head, a baby elephants head. I noticed it quite soon I had finished the land masses and kinda hoped that no-one else sees it ;)

Hope to see this map on the front page soon! Me too!

This map is so awesome that I am at a loss for words! I simply do not know how to describe it... Nothing seems to do it justice! ;) Just amazing...

Here is the full resolution version of the map. I had to split it into six pieces to fit the limitations and you can select each piece separately.

This is amazing and the details are fantastic. If I had to select only five maps from the site to bring to a desert island this would be one of them.

This map is wonderful!

I'm gonna use this map for my upcoming Fate Core campaign (if you don't mind!). I'd love to see what setting you had in mind when you drew this map if such information exist!

Also, I'm french speaker so I was wondering if the .psd was available (or a version without any names on it) so I can transcribe the names, for example "Whitemist" would become "Blanchebrise" or "Blanchebrume" in french.

Thanks a lot!

Silverwave - you are most welcome to use the map in your own campagn. The full .PSD file is quite large (1,9Gig) and not a simple one to share, but here is a version without the labels, so you can add yours.
You asked about the setting I had in my mind when I draw this map. Well, the base thought was to create a land where civilization had not taken all of the land. I wanted to have relatively long distance between cities to leave enough room for wildernes. I wanted the cities to be located in the "safe" lands and create tempation for player to take a shortcuts while traveling and by then creating natural paths fort new adventures. My game is low / medium fantasy. In other words most of the things should have a real world reasons with shorcuts to keep things simple enough. Magic is there, but rare and people respect and sometimes doesn't trust the ones with such capeabilities.
