For everyone who read mistborn ( everyone else: grab a copy! ) ruin as a concept of evil canīt be missed. So I decided to throw in my lot this time. Even if itīs swimming with the big fish ;)

Oh, I'd say you're a big enough fish. That looks great so far! You going to color it? It would look great with painterly watercolors.

looking good T, but there is a bit of a typo in your text...I think it should read "a remindER to us all......"

BTW, I LOVE concept deities :D

Brandon Sanderson, great books btw. Nice snag on a good idea behind your map too. I listened to the whole series as Audio books.

After using an insane amount of time fiddeling around with the path tools in Photoshop and trying to make a concept how to proceed I post my recent progress. Itīs very rough concept I will refine in the coming days.

Really like this entry...I would personally like to see it with some light coloring (i.e. semi-transparent), maybe a dark limited earthy tone palette...either way, really cool map.

if your gonna color it, make it look like stains and super washed out because this look you have going is very unique and characteristic style! I like it a whole bunch!

The color does add a lot to the look, much more interesting.

Toned it down a bit and put on some aging and wrinkling. Not absolutley sure about it, I may change that.

Looks really good. The wrinkling, however, looks more like hard creases...as if the paper was folded over and someone ran their fingernail over the fold a couple of times. A softer wrinkling might look better. Just a thought. Overall, really nice work!

Very nice colour tones but the wrinkling doesn't look natural

Previous aging was my shot at generating procedural paper texture at which I failed. Iīm just not experienced enough with my new toy to pull that off. So here is the classic approach. THX for making it very clear to me ;)

I will call this finished or Iīll tweak it for worse. German term is "Verschlimmbessern" ;)
