    Map A Physical map of Etarek (Atlas Style)

    This map is a very basic depiction of the physical features of Etarek. It's roughly an equirectangular projection, which I realise isn't ideal. But the purpose is really so I could name all of my continents, seas and physical regions. I'm happy enough with it to move on now.

    Etarek is a world that I'm slowly building in my free time. It's an Earth-like world that had recently had a raise in sea levels, hence the strange-looking estuaries. When a supernova destroyed all the inhabited planets of an interstellar civilisation, only a tiny portion of the federation's population escaped and only 16 ships from 12 worlds landed on Etarek, as you can see in this map (which I may revise to make it fit with this style).

    I'm working on a series of political maps in a very similar atlas style. The first one is nearly finished and will be up here in a few days.

    I've always wanted to do a physical map such as this for my own world project. Yours turned out quite nicely Laevex. I like it's simplicity.

    Cheers,

    Very nice - I love this style. Can I ask what you use to colour it?

    Thanks. I use Adobe Illustrator for most of it. The colours come from this map, which I love.

    I think I've already shared my thoughts on Etarek a couple of times, but I'll share them again: nice. Keep it up!
