Etrakien Revisited by Clercon
Created in: Photoshop CS5
This is the second time the World of Etrakien has made it into the Cartographer's Choice hall of fame. Clercon picked up his first Featured Map with his initial rendering of Etrakien. It's a testament to Clercon's skill, and the development of his style, that his second rendering of the world has once again created a stand out piece of illustration.
The map presents layers of style, subtly and consistently hinting at the cultural details of the world. The stylised mountains are clearly reminiscent of the original map, but the subdued colours and worn parchment feel create a very different impression. This is an excellent example of a old parchment map that still retains function and clarity for even the smallest details. I highly recommend following the link to the full sized map to properly appreciate this excellent piece.

Beautiful map! I especially like the folded look, how did you do that?
I like the folds as well, and the little language detail on the compass. Looks like a fun world for sailing.
Any high resolution available?
Yes, if you follow the link to the finished map thread in the first post at the top you will find a higher resolution version.
