Here's the finished product of the WIP thread found here. (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=8024)

I tried to take pieces from various tutorials that I especially liked and combine them with some stuff of my own to create something new, and I think it succeeded fairly well. I used a bit of Ascension's Atlas tut to do the seas, and of course the higher mountain elevations were created using Pasis's method. The lower elevations, the hills, and the other terrain features I made just by using repeated difference cloud layers, beveled and layered over with various filters to get some variation in appearance.

Anyway, hope you like it.

Let me be the first so say congrats. This is a beautiful map and I think you succeeded at your goal. I especially love the heraldry!

Good work. The only thing the map is missing would be a border, but I don't mind it without one. Have some rep :)

Really nice map! I also found it quite amusing to find my hometown of Göteborg among the cities (although in a slightly different version, Goteberg :) ).

A very evocative, pretty map.

Well Done. I like the dimensions of your map - 2440 miles by 820 miles. The width gives a sense of a large piece of land.

Of course it begs the question, if these are the Northlands, what's further north?


I repped you into 2 little green thingies! (Probably won't use that phrase again today :).)

Very crisp and clean. Love the heraldry and the coast.

Nice job.
