Hi everyone,

My latest work, a private comission : The 5 Duchies of Lunesse, a regional map and Serdune, the Crimson City. Both are 2480x3508px size (uploaded images at 65% size). Lunesse's map was made in photoshop, using some hand-drawn elements and digital work. Serdune's map was first hand-drawn, then imported in photoshop for the color steps.

Comments are welcome, hope you'll like it!

Feel free to rate, rep or run away :)

Très beau travail !

Autant au niveau du rendu global que de l'intégration des icônes de cités ou les bannières.

Fantastic work. Very reminiscent of Jared Blando's work. Once again, your capacity to output amazing work surpasses my ability to rep you.

Cheers,

Thanks :)
@ Vorropohaiah: do you mean it looks kind of rushed? :-P On a serious note, I've started the regional map before the latest comission but it was quite fast to do. The city was a bit of more work though.

@Lord thomas: a pen, photoshop, some patience ;)

These are gorgeous! I would rep you but I have to spread some love first. ;) You are creating too many too beautiful maps too fast. :P (For me to rep all of them at least =P)

Another beautiful piece, Max! It kind of reminds me of Jared's style, was that intentional?
Not sure if i can rep. you yet, but i will try ;)

Thanks Eilathen! It wasn't intentional. At the start I was planning to go on a Selvarin style map but I decided to make things evolve with the contrast between the blue seas and red you find several times on the map and with different mountains. Obviously this made the map reminiscent of Jared's work (which I always liked).

Great maps. But i have to join the others to see a the map style matching Jareds nearly 80%, which confused me a bit.
The City map turned out realy well. Omg you are realy creating awesome Maps in hyperspeed.

Thanks SK :) . I can understand it's a bit confusing. As you can see I like experimenting different styles. Making all maps with same style would probably be boring for me. Sometimes I'm heavily inspired, sometimes not. The goal on this one was to find a "fast" style. This worked :D. Next one will sure be different: I'll probably post a new WIP soon.

This is excellent work. I would love to have a map of my homebrew campaign world rendered in this style.

Nah, that wasnt a complain. I ended up liking Ramah`s latest Vanya map so much that I emulated the Style more or less concious at a too intense level and skip that map. Its easy to get absorbed in appropriation, and you showed well that you have your own "handwriting". I am sorry if my critic sounded too intrusive.

No problem Schwarzkreuz, I didn't take it as an offense or something wrong :) A lot of cartographers here inspired me, sometimes it's less or more visible ;)

The edges of your coastlines on your regional map is exceptionally well defined.
