Hi guys,

This map was commissioned for an online fantasy game project. I went with brighter colors than I use to do, as requested by the client. The map is 12x12", digitally hand-drawn in Photoshop.

I really love the ocean colors, and the whole map is beautiful! (How do you do them so FAST?? D: )

Very nice map as usual... and I love those circles around the big cities! I think you used something close on another map for a game, but can't recall which one... because you are making too many good maps too quickly :D

As always amazing. :) I love how effortlessly you are able to change the climate throughout map, something I have a really hard time with...

As you say, perhaps a touch brighter than necessary, but it achieves excellent effect in differentiating "zones" of the world. Of course it does beg the question, just what is a Slyrnian League? LOL. Symbols are nice, simple, clear and I kind of like the halo effect, even if I don't know exactly why its there.

Another fantastic map, as usual. Your clients certainly do get their money's worth! And as usual, I can't rep you ;)

Cheers,

I love the forests and cities in this one! Not sure about the colors, trying to figure out how to explain it… My eyes are drawn to the ocean, it has the most interesting color in the map. Maybe not a bad thing though :)

Thanks much guys, comments much appreciated!

Absolutely no idea :D Well the local unit of measure obviously though I don't really know the length of a slyrnian league ;)

Artistic licence :P (oh and also to slightly enhance the main cities)

Hehe, I went with a slightly desatured ocean color at first but I wasn't really satisfied with it so I did some brighter/deeper color for it.

The game is in its early development stages as far as I know and though the client wanted some maps at this time, he doesn't want to spread details about the game at the moment. I'll respect his wishes, I wouldn't like being tracked by some dreadful assassins :D
This said, it's pleasant to hear that looking at the map makes you want playing this game :)


Why I can't rep? :?
You probably have to spread some rep around ;)

Very strong colors. I like the mountains (as almost always with your maps) and the forests, for this kind of style, are good as well (better than the average look in this kind of depiction of forests). So. kudos to you, once again, Max. Have a Like.

A nice and classical Fantasy map. But I think I prefer your more muted colors. Well its personal taste I guess.

Yep I tend to prefer it aswell, the bright colors were specifically requested by the client ;)
