So this is a new style of map I've been working on. Rather than focus on geographical features like I normally do, I decided to go for a more political look. I made it entirely in photoshop from scratch, it took me a little over 3 hours, and I like the way it has turned out.
I pulled inspiration from the American Civil War, with a North vs. South layout. For anyone who cares, the war is centered on slavery, hence the line near the bottom reading
"Depicting the Second Slave War". I received quite a bit of feedback for a previous map, and I took lots of the advice and used it in the creation of this map. I added in more details, including population levels, major geographical names, and a home made mountain graphic.
I hope you like it, and I hope to receive even more feedback so I can keep working on this new style. Thanks!
