    Map Oraven - The Red Moors- fantasy map

    Hey all,

    After having done the savage lands of Oraven, I've decided on another region of Oraven, the Red Moors.

I didn't find the real explanation about this strange color : according to some inhabitants beliefs, the sea is made of some old gods blood after a great ancien war while the priests of Monshra tells that the red is actually due to the reflection of Ehrun, the red moon. Some fools even theorize that the sea would get its strange color from some redish luminescent algae in its depths.
    It was done in Photoshop and the full size map is 14"x19". WIP thread is here. Thanks to everyone for the support.

    Comments are still welcome, I hope you'll like it.

    Feel free to rep, rate or run away

    Your maps are one of the reasons i dont get bored on looking at maps tha last half year. Its a huge jump from your first maps, which had lots of references to other mappers or historical styles, to this now very well tuned and fluid personal style. I am amazed and cant wait to see more maps by your hand.
