A regional map for a fantasy setting I'm slowly developing. This shows the British Isles 400 years after the world of Man and the world of Faerie... Merged.

Holy Hannah! That is awesome! I love the customs stamps!

Well done :)

Thanks! It's shabby compared to some of your work, but I was fairly happy with it nonetheless.

Heck all I do it play with Hexmaps... this is beyond me... for right now ;)

So what is the evolution of this map going to be?

What I'm thinking about starting next is close-up views of some of the states shown on here. Think I'll start with Avalon (also known as Somerset :D). It's going to be a fairly large-scale map, and it's a little intimidating; I don't usually work with stuff much over 1500x1500, and the Avalon map and subsequent maps may run to twice that size. Ah well, I only get better by trying. :)

Very nice map! Have some reputation.
The stamps do indeed look marvelous. What's there purpose though? I have never seen stamps on a map before.

That's easy. A piskie needed to draw out a map, and all he could get ahold of was an old passport!

Neat stuff here...the grunge-ing/aging is quite nice.

Very, very cool. It's pretty simple but extremely effective.

Everything works for me...the map is well done and the extras (crumpled paper, stamps, handwriting, etc.) all just add to it.

Awesome job! :)

Merely decorative. The blue and red stamps were supposed to represent random (Or not-so-random?) doodles by some Faerie who got ahold of the map. The circles within the blue stamp line up over key locations/places of magical energy...

This is pretty cool. I dunno whats going on in the lands around here tho. Avalon seems to be riding high - as it does but then... well... some serious geological shenanigans have been evoked and twisted it a bit. Its a seamless change into the fantasy at this point tho. I like it.

EDIT -- Modern "Avalon" pic attached with the Tor on top. The hill with the Tor would have been an island in old times before they drained the low lands. I would imagine that some of the other hills around would be above water too. Must have looked mighty odd and magical.

Cheers - if your interested then heres the Tor itself and a pic from the hill looking back to the hills from where the first pic was took. Its a very bumpy landscape and has some very interesting places to go in that area.

These are awesome. Reminds me of that challenge map a few months back by Map Vandal...The Orchards. I could look at these all day long.
