So this was my entry (http://www.cartographersguild.com/mapping-challenge-archive/23953-july-2013-entry-nehwon.html) for the July Challenge "Map the novel" : the map of the world of Nehwon, from Fritz Leiber sword and sorcery serie, telling the adventures of Fahfrd and the Grey Mouser.
Original size is 21"x20" and it's made in Photoshop.

Thanks much Arsheesh :) Well yea, I'd have loved entering the current one aswell but commissions and some well deserved vacation will take my time away :D

I love the painted look of these maps. Like they should be on a wall; or maybe a table with generals hunkered over it planning their strategy.
