Wonderful map, man.
I need to spread some rep around before I can hit you with some more though.
Great work on the heraldry!
one of the best of vorropohaiah!, can you tell me what you make it?
More awesome work. What region is up next?
"I like a look of agony, because I know it's true."
most of the 'character' comes from the paper, which is used three tiomes, once set on overlay at about 30% opacity, again converted to grey, with all but the creases and tears set to 50% grey and set to soft light (making the 50% invisible and reinforcing the depth of the creases). the same grey paper texture was used as a distort displacement layer on the final jpg image to further enhance the creases and tears.
that's about it in a nutshell. if you wanted to know about something specific, just let me know!
the Inner Sea, in the lower right quadrant, the triad of Sarastro, Venthir and the Anubian desert (collectively known as the Arid Triptych) is one of my favourite regions, with quite a bit of history and regions/features developed for them, and I might try my hand an that area, though for now its a pretty big project doing the twin stereographic world map though i tend to start multiple projects and let one take over, so to speak, so we'll see
I'm just having a mapgasm.
The heraldry, the paper folds and the damage, the icons, the typo, the lightly tilted presentation ... I really like that level of detail.
i agree on the heraldry. interesting addition to a map. i like it. nicely done
This map is great! Is this your creation or are you working with someone else on it? What do you intend to use this map for?
it's a region of my conworld, called Elyden (most of the maps i post here are part of the world). I've been writing it for coming up to 8-years now, on-off and intend on hand-making an encyclopaedia/bible/atlas based around the world. someday...
And oneday I want it to be on my Bokkshelf. This is a grreat Work of Inspiration for me.
