    Praise Central Alemnia by Daelin

    Map

    Central Alemnia by Daelin-central-alemnia.jpg

    Created in: Photoshop

    Review
    Toward the end of last year Daelin shared this stunning piece with the Guild. The mountains and soft river basins set on an elegant off-white land-form really make this piece stand out. Though it has taken several months, we are now proud to introduce Central Alemnia as our new Cartographers Choice featured map. Well done Daelin!

    Congrats. A high honour well deserved.

    Although the mountains are obviously the standout feature, nothing about this map looks bad, from the forests to the 3d-like legend. My favourite part (after the mountains) is the compass rose.

    Great job! I love the colors. This reminds me of the map of Westeros from Game of Thrones.

    This map is very cool.

    Makes me think of Melnibone for all the right reasons.

    Maps like this make me want to sit behind the cartographer every step of the way and just watch. Simply excelled. I read in the original Finished Map thread that you used some of Tom Patterson (cartography God, we're not worthy we're not worthy)'s shaded relief maps, coupled with a bevel/emboss to create that shading effect. You should consider writing a tutorial for this effect, as I for one would love to see the steps in the process. The final effect is brilliant.
