    Map The world of Aran

    Hello guys, i made this for a game i'm working on (If you want to see the whole project, there's gonna be a website whenever we can, i'll post the link here ! Some of my 3D works are also on the Blender Clan forum, i got the same nickname here)

    Note : The whirlwind/vortex on the map is a place where water flows down under the world and flows up again to form the sky, and then falls down in rain... a bit like toilets.



    Title : The world of Aran

    Size : 1494x1321 px

    Approximate working time : 8-10 hours ( i had to learn the whole thing...)

    Price invested to get this result : $0 (Okay, i had to buy a computer, a Wacom tablet, rhum and tobacco...)

    Experience in cartography before : None

    Number of porn videos watched after working : 27

    Huge mistake i could not fix : Rivers are flowing from one sea to another, forming a lake...huh, wierd ^^

    People who gave me advices : My dad, my best friend, the Blender Clan forum, I'd like to say the Cartographer's Guild, but i posted my map almost finished so...

    Tutorials that helped me the most : http://fantasticmaps.wordpress.com/ This guy rocks.

    Do i allow people to use my map ? No, but you can wank on it if you think it's sexy.

    Do i allow people to show my map as a poor example of what can be done in cartography ? Yes, only if you include my name.

    If you want to see the whole WIP : Go HERE


    Thanks for viewing !

    Hello again everyone !
    I'm going to make a new version of this map :
    The world is infested by demons, and i'm going to make multiple versions showing the demon population.
    The map will be dark and purple.

    Comments ! Comments ! =)

    Salut!

    It's a great map and I look forward to seeing your new version of it. I am sure it'll look even better than the previous though I am curious how the purple colour scheme will change it! The WiP thread is also very interesting although it is a little slow for me as my french is not the best. =P

    Thanks =)

    I'm not home now, so i don't have my .xcf file with layers and all that stuff. Plus i don't have gimp here...
    So i used photoshop and i downloaded the .jpeg from here to modify it.
    This is NOT the final version, it's just a test to show you how it might look like, i repeat, this is not a good image, this is ugly and i'll work on it later !

    (Maybe i should have posted that on WIP... but it's only to show you, so i don't know if it's useful to post on works in progress...)

    I like them. For some reason they remind me of the Ultima games I played as a kid, though I don't really recall if those games came with maps or not or what they looked like. Very nice.
