Hi everyone,

I'm new to the cartographer's guild and I figured a first post will be quite good with an attached map so here it is:

Sevindel's Harbour is a hand-drawn fantasy medieval town (original size is 2802x3625 px). I used ink pen then numerized it and colored it up with photoshop.
I hope you'll like it :)

He ben! On ne m'aurait pas dit que c'était dessiné à la main, je ne l'aurais pas deviné! Félécitations! J'aime beaucoup le style et les couleurs, et bravo pour le travail de post-production avec photoshop.

(I guess that you're French like me... Welcome to the Guild!)

Bien deviné ;) Merci pour les félicitations et la bienvenue :) Le trait à la main est en effet plus visible en taille réelle. Je devrais peut-être rajouter des gros plans...
And for those who don't speak french: thanks for the congratulations ;) Yes this is hand-drawn but you can better see the dawn lines on the original size of the map. Maybe I should add some close-ups...

(Et oui tu as bien deviné, je suis français comme toi ;) Merci pour la bienvenue!)

Excellent. Exquisite detail. Like the colors...nothing garish. It helps reinforce the fantasy realm scenario's "feel".

Hey now, that's a very respectable map. I really like what you've done with the borders as well. Have some rep.

Cheers,

Thanks! Keep your eyes around, I'm about to finish the map of the Kingdom of Ereborn, where Sevindel is located at ;) I'll post it soon

Nice map! I like the good mix of the hand drawn parts and the photoshop coloring.

Thanks Carnifex. That's how I like to work most of the time, especially on town and cities maps

So true. It will probably take a long time before I'll start this new city map since I have a fews projects at the moment but well it will come soon or late ;)

Another cool map! Liked this one also, but I was dissapointed there weren't any roads so I couldn't follow them on a wonderful adventure through the city. ;)

I just joined about a week ago and it's weird that everyone seems to have completely gorgeous maps on this site! I suppose I will have to acquaint myself with a few of the more widely used computer programs so I can make a map of my own.

Thanks Foremost. It's a small town, not so organized so you won't find roads or streets here but there will be some of them on my next town map ;)
