    Map Nosgoth

    Hi everyone, this is my first finished sumbission.
    It is a map of Nosgoth, from the Legacy of Kain series. This was originally intended as an exercise, since I've never been able to draw a convincing map before stumbling upon this website, but I came to be sufficiently satisfied by the final result that I decided to post it nonetheless.

    I used a reinterpretation of the techniques explained in Tear's and Pasis' tutorials (which I found to be great, both of them) to draw this map. I think that Tear has discovered a master method to add depth to the seas, while Pasis' mountains seem to pop out of the screen. In addition, I tried to add a personal touch, both with texture and color choices.
    Though I know this map could still be improved, the exercise did what it was intended to, so I prefer to call it finished and experiment with something else: next step is calligraphic maps.
    I hope you enjoy my efforts so far!

    Given the choice:
    wheter to rule a corrupt and failing empire
    or to challenge the Fates for another throw, a better throw against one's destiny...
    what was a King to do?
    But does anyone truly have a choice?
    One can only match, move by move, the machinations of Fate.
    And thus defy the tyrannous stars.

    Thank you!
    The compass rose is a reproduction of a great monument of crucial importance in the game world. Here is a screenshot.
    I'm glad you liked it, though it's a little unusual as a compass rose!

    Unusual roses are the best ones, and that's extremely fitting!

    How funny, I never paid that much attention to the compass rose, I like it! Especially having an in world connection.

    Well, truth be said, I wasn't too convinced in the first place. Now I am. Thanks! =)

    You're welcome, but thanks for what?
    And I can't understand the sentence in parentheses!
