    Created in: Photoshop

    Review
    A recent member to the Guild, Schwarzkreuz has come on strong with his first sharing...The Imperial Worldmap of Arden is an extremely large effort (figuratively and literally) weighing in at a full poster sized 90x120 cm. The elements are primarily hand drawn and scanned, then composited together or turned into brushes for use in Photoshop. As commented in the WIP, this map is staggering! It is so darn big, we've only provided a scaled version here, so check out the full thread for a better view! (And if we ask nice, we might be able to get a full size map an admin could host here...)

I started playing RPGs more than 20 Years ago and this world was there from the first day and walked along my side for the most part of my life. In the progress I have learned a lot about patient, ok I admit it, also about frustration. I have always be a person who cant wait to finish up things, but this map sure needed its time. I am very grateful to all those excellent Map tutorials and inspirations.

    Oh, this is realy a great Honor. I didnt imagine my first steps here would bring me such an award. Its all thanks to this wonderful community that I could do this map. Long have this lands floating in my head but now they finally took form. My thank to all Cartographersguildmembers who makes this place what it is.

    Beautiful! Reminds me of my Grandad's Times World Map he used to have on his living room wall. He was a 100 a day man so it turned sepia coloured over the years- no bad thing in my opinion.

    Beautiful map. But shouldn't it be called "Fürstentümer Xellen" rather than "Fürstantümer Xellen"?
