Kind of in limbo waiting to hear from my client about his map... so I thought I'd revisit a map I did a couple of years ago. This is sort of a fantasy version of a post-civil war America, except here it was a republican north that seceded from an aristocratic south.

Not quite done with it yet, but I thought I'd post it as-is and see what you all think of it. The mountains are made using Bill Hooks' awesome Victorian mountain brushes: http://www.cartographersguild.com/mapping-elements/11176-fuzzy-caterpillar-victorian-mountain-brushes.html

Excellent! I love the general look and ambience (very appropriate for the setting).

I think I recognize your excellent Shield Lands coast... Am I right?

Great stuff as usual D.! And this brush is surely very useful (and time saving), might use it for some next project.

Ilanthar: Yep, it's a direct trace from yet another of my old maps, but not the Sheild Lands one, I don't think...

I've checked my inspiration folder and found your excellent Shield Lands map!

In fact, it was one of the map I asked you to use for my map of Elthyrra.

Well, as always, perfect shapes and all. Just wished you would finally do REAL mountains again ;)

Btw, hope you will keep on working on the Panharta Map.

And i can totally see why Ilanthar was thinking of this Shield Lands V2 by Chanimur on deviantART (http://chanimur.deviantart.com/art/Shield-Lands-V2-182143467). I think he is right.

Oh yeah, I forgot I used that name on that map too. That's what happens when you recycle names too much. :D
