Hi all,
Jasper Fforde's Shades of Grey is one of my favorite novels, and what's more, it can be mapped. So I mapped it! If you haven't read it, I strongly recommend it. Enjoy.

I am not familiar with the setting but the map makes it look pretty intriguing. Also it's a very nice and clean piece of work.

Lovely work as always, Rob. I really like the understated relief.

p.s. I've been looking for that forest pattern everywhere off and on. I know it's posted up on the guild somewhere as part of a larger collection but I can't find it)...is there any chance you could post the pattern up so I can add it to my texture files?

Cheers

Sure thing. It's from the USGS originally, but I can't seem to find it through Google either. How do I get an .ai file to you?

Whoa, i am working in one map adapting somthing like this style to a old/ medieval map. This map... is one that i have to keep as reference for this style.

Thanks Rob,

If you put the file in a zip folder and post it here as an attachment (like you did with the image), that would work, thanks in advance!

Okay ravells, here's the forest pattern I use in an Illustrator CS2 file. If you need an older version let me know and I can backsave it for you.

Thanks Rob, much appreciated! Just in case you need it (probably not if the forest outline size to the texture size is small), I have used image synth to make a tiling 2048 version (the current one looks like its 512 and the tile lines are obvious) which might be useful for really large forests.

cool to see another Jasper Fforde fan around!

I like the clean lines and color scheme you used here, good work :)
