    Default Māinṃ

    Māinṃ-mainm.jpg

    Here is Māinṃ. It's a world I started to build on for a small game project.

    This thing devoured all my free time for a few weeks, until I got to a boring part (lettering), when I didn't work on it too much for a couple of weeks, but now I got back to it and it's basically done enuff.

    If you want to know more about this particular world, check out the WIP thread.

    Facts:

    Diameter: around 18 000 km
    Map projection: no projection

    Programs used, in order of most useditidy:
    GIMP (most everything to do with land-masses, and the mountains, trees, etc.)
    Inkscape (graticule, geometric figures, straight lines, the small heraldic emblems, the corner diagrams)
    MyPaint (lettering and the later small pictures)

    The writing script: Latin-derived miniscule, original for this project, made by me.
    Language on the map: Proto-Finnic etymological forms w/ modern Finnish syntactic and morphological constructions run through a set of sound-changes.

    Thanks for the comments.

    But Nae, how do you stay so handsome?
    Ah, that is the result of lots of practice.

    That last quote wasn't real! What is happening here?
    I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Heh heh, funny, man.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
    -J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)
