View Full Version : Test of a new style

This is an experimental thing that combines abstract mountains and forests with realistic political details - it isn't complete yet. I just started and haven't had time to put in a map key yet, so green lines are international highways, orange line are national ones. Any thoughts?

Very experimental. Hard for me to say much, not really qualified.

I like the idea you're going after, here.
You could add a lot of content to this map. Trade routes, locations of historical battles, key strategic locations
I like the mountains. Simple and effective.
I don't much like the forests, however. They look like smudges to me. And also, the coasts look odd.

Interesting. Some parts look very painterly. How you creating this?
Also, the Co(n)federated States of Arran lost an "n".

I'm drawing this in Paintshop, using the tried-and-tested 'dabbling when you're bored' method.
Also, a new version is attached. Among other things, I messed with the forests a bit.

This is a very unique style. I think if you tightened the mountains up a bit and made then opaque it would clean up the map a bit and give you more room for whatever else you need to add. On the whole I like what you are trying to achieve.

The second "International Boundry (sea)" is actually the land boundary marker. Also note the missing "a" in "boundary".
