Hi, here is the commissioned Map for Mike Raynolds upcomming Novel set in western Novotera, a far outskirt of an old empire. The imperial Duchy of Caspin and the vast reach of Anurakh are central to the focus of this map, displaying the political and geographical surroundings of the Story. 6x9" 300 DPI

Good map overall though the forests shade makes them floating a bit (a small neatpick : a part of the glacier lake seems to be erased -bottom right corner)

This is the kind of map I want to make :(

Or have made, if I fail miserably, lol :)

Anyway, it's a lovely map, and I can't even find the flaws pointed out in the last post, even though I'm looking. :o

It's beautiful :)

Oh, nice one! I see you used your new mountains for this - they look great.

It's a very lovely map.

Cool style! I really like the way that the title looks. Do you mind sharing how you did that?

Copy the fontlayer, use gaussian blur on it and use colorburn Layer setup in 75% flow/density

As always, very nice mountains! I also like the forests and the overall color choice.
I am not that fond of the landshapes but i guess that you can not influence that very much as it was a commission.

I hope we will start to see more maps out of you again, SK, you are missed.

Wow, excellent map! Love the colors and your mountains are astonishing!

In fact, everything is fine :). I would just have a bit less of those coastal lines (but it's just to my taste).

This is a very interesting map; I like the atmosphere
you incorporated. All the stains or marks on the map
are quite effective, so nice job. I also like the coastal
lines, contrary to what Ilanthar said. Makes it busier.

Yes, the coastlines were citizised by Max too. I sure work on an alternative for the next map.

Indeed I think that a few less coastal rings would have helped to enhance the sea empty spaces but that's a personnal taste.

Very nice little map! The landshape doesn't look perfectly natural to me, but I guess that was beyond your control, and the execution is flawless :)

nice font choice on this - what are they please :)

This is such a nice map. The gorges at the top are great, and I like the whole feel of it.

Lovely map. The mountains came out really well. :)
