And on it goes :D
Not a big fan of archipelagos in general, but i'm sure you will make it something to look at. Looking forward to the progress!

I'd love to see all the pieces stitched together eventually, in a massive wall-map.

@Eilathen: Now I know the ULTIMATE map to irritate you: an archipelago with triangle mountains. :D

So, judging by the color scheme (which I dig), will we see a more southern part of Oraven this time?

Haha you just made my day :D About the stitched pieces I don't think you will see that one day for Oraven, since I went with quite different mountains, colors. I have some other style idea for the world map but I have to test out when I'll get some time. I guess a massive wall map in this style would be another project :D

@ Eilathen : I like archipelagos shapes but I don't find that many archipelgos maps. Though it has less features on them, I'm not sure it's the easiest maps to do ( not that much room, harder to label etc.)
@ Lingon : my idea is some tropical/volcanic islands, let's see how this will go ;)

I am a big fan of archipelagos myself, and can't wait to see what you do. Is there a reason it is in a sort of a swirl shape in your world, or is it just a design thing? I find that to be very interesting.

As am I a fan of them.
Max, I like what you have here so far. You really are very prolific! Do you plan to use these Oraven maps in the future?

Thanks guys :)
@ Failtality : The hard part of an archipelago is to have enough lands room to place geographical stuff and labels while having a pretty good convincing islands landshapes so the swirl shape was drawn regarding the format of the page but it sure has some explanation in the backgound story of the place ;)
@ Viking, yes:

The plan is to make an Atlas of oraven with a few big regional maps (like the savage lands, the red moors, the cold hell and some others), a worldmap (less detailed) to locate all the regions and maybe some close zoomed in maps of some parts of the big ones.
Btw not sure you noticed it but The Cold Hell map is finished and you can check it here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/finished-maps/24175-oraven-cold-hell-fantasy-map.html) ;)

Already a cool map with the kind of shapes that I like...
Volcanic archipelago make me think about Guildwars right now. But I'm sure yours will be a lot much better !

And as a lot of people, I am eager to see this world map one day !

Your Oraven series of Maps realy catch my taste, beside the borders. Max, its boring to praise you all time, lately. When I am make a break from beeing sick, I try to catchup. At least for me, the greatest praise is becomming an inspiration and/or an aim for others to reach and motivate them to go beyond their limits. My motivation burns, and today its neither the weather nor my feaver.

Thanks for the support Josephe. Well I already told you that, but I hope you will get some better health soon and get back in the saddle again. But if you need some time to do it, no worry, I'll be glad to please your eyes with some more Oraven maps ;)

Yes indeed, i am thrilled to see the other Oraven maps that you planned.

This is getting impossibly boring. Max, really. Could you just once make a map that's bad? Or even mediocre? I mean, everything you do here is just... magic! It's like you're trying to make us feel bad! :P

I'm just kidding of course. I really like what you're doing here, and on all your other Oraven maps. I can't wait for the next update!!

:D thanks Caerwyn! But yea I would probably be able to make some ugly maps using some technics/styles I don't know that much ;)

I think it would be cool if you put the maps together (atleast relatively together).
Great job so far on the maps.

So yea I don't think pieces stitched together would be aesthetically pleasant :/

It would give you an excuse to redo all of the sections in one unified theme though...

:D
