Just saw this and thought others here might like to see the eye candy:

They got a lot of little lakes in there. I thought it was interesting how some of them were greenish and others more blue. Do you think that was done individually or were the lakes a layer of their own with some kind of filter on them that caused the differences?

I like the overall glow of the map. The coloring is cool.

That's a nice overland map and it is interesting to see all of the places mentioned, but not shown, in the game (only Ferelden is shown in the CRP game). Too bad the in-game dungeon maps are so horrible.

Ain't nothing wrong with a wee bit of cartography crack to start the day out with!

It's the full Theren (sp) map, basically the "world" for BioWare rpgs. Dragon Age: Origins takes place in Ferelden. Thanks for upping this, my copy is a tiny screen shot.

Its funny you post this here. It was actually in search a way to emulate this very map that I found the CG. I have since decided its not the style for me but I am happy where my search led.

Now that's a sweet map, nice find. It even looks better than the ingame world map, Ferelden is not very pretty...

Does anyone even have an idea about where to start with a tutorial to try and reproduce this map?

Before coming to this forum I decided it was impossible (for me at least) but now that I have been here a while I can see it would probably be quite simple. Most of the features are denoted with swathes of colour besides the mountains. I would think that several of the talented artists who specialize in "satellite" type maps here could do this up with little problem.

In fact, I would go so far as to say there are more than a few maps on this site that are better than this one.

My style has been evolving towards this but hasn't gotten there yet. It's primarily artistic hand-painted color swashes, some filters, some grunge brushes, some shaded relief mountains, and lots of tweaking.

You are being modest, sir. :D
