Hello, friends. I have created a new city map--an evolution of a style I've been developing.

I have also created a tutorial detailing how I created the map. It's a very big file and--because I am not a professional by any means--it's very poor, I'm afraid. But if you feel it could perhaps help you in your endeavors...

EDIT: The tutorial is posted in the "Tutorials/How-To" section of the forum index. Go there & you can download it!

Take care!

What format is the tutorial? I can probably host it here.

That city map is gorgeous by the way. Love the bright colors, and the map has a very consistent feel to it thats just warm to look at. Nice work again bro!

Hello, friends. Here is a link to my new city map, which is an evolution of a style I began developing in a Works In Progress posting here at TCG earlier.

I have also created a tutorial detailing how I created the map. It's a very big file and--because I am not a professional by any means--it's very poor, I'm afraid. But if you feel it could perhaps help you in your endeavors, and if someone can help me find a way to offer it to the general public, I will.

Take care!

Wow, I'm speechless. Where's the Dragon's Breast?

As to the tutorial, I'll gladly help you figure out where/how to host the thing.

I have to say that I really like that style. It gives an organic feel that that is a real place. Do you have a before filters were applied view as well? I would love to see what it looked like to begin with. Oh, it is probably in the tutorial huh? :oops:

Thank you for the compliments. Criticisms/suggestions are encouraged as well, as I'm always trying to improve.

The tutorial does indeed include the pre-filtered map, which I imagine would be of many people's liking--especially those that feel the need for photorealistic maps (my least favorite for large scale cartography). I create a map that--up until a mere few steps before the filter process--would need very little tweaking to be less "art" and more verisimilitude.

EDIT: The tutorial is posted in the "Tutorial/How-to" forum

Thanks again for your input.

Great style and use of color on that map, Pyrandon.

I'm looking forward to seeing the tutorial, and the pre-filtered map.

Hey, I know this is an odd question to bring this topic up again, but wasn't there a discussion here concerning putting this map of Eneini into a 3D program that was then animated? I was thinking about it today and I can't find it, though I've been all over the forums. Was it lost in some shuffle? Thanks.
