I love it. This is going straight into my inspiration folder. Repped and Rated.
The map depicts a fantasy country called Oakfall, a religious-throwback monarchy with a shifty priest race, twin heirs to the throne and vassals with crumbly-loyalty. The setting is mostly low/dark fantasy, the priest race being the only non-human humanoid or sentient race (and they look almost exactly human). Surrounded by countries of more 'contemporary', uniform religion, Oakfall returned to a feral, chthonic form of faith guided by the Priests of Nogur. Under the blessing of their demon-god, the kingdom is abundant in wealth and peace, atleast until the second heir is too qualified --too loved-- to be ignored, and wants more than he probably should.
This is the second map project I attempted, the first one had scaling issues and was abandoned. This one also took awhile to finish, mostly because it got forgotten out of negligence and/or frustration. Cartography is harder and requires more work than I initially (naively) expected, but still very interesting and I learned a lot from everyone here.
Here’s hoping the next map will be better and finished faster!

♣ Oakfall [Finished] ♣
i completely missed this first time around... gorgeous map, and i love the painterly feel it has to it, as well. quite different from most stuff we see here.
Very nice indeed!
I think I forgot to comment and rep this baby, so let me correct that mistake. And congrats again for the CC award

Amazing detail on the mountains and design edges! Everything seems to blend beautifully together.
This map is awesome. Congrats!
