    Default Mappa Exculta Mundi (et Notum Partes blah blah)

    This is a map I began making as personal reference for a novel I'm writing. It ended up a little more decorated than the purpose called for…

    Mappa Exculta Mundi (et Notum Partes blah blah)-k%E4ndav%E4rlden16.jpg

    The map shows a part of the Kola peninsula, Russia, in an alternative setting. It's is mostly painted by hand with ink, watercolors and acrylics, with some finalizing adjustments and additions in Photoshop. The original is A3 in size.

    I'd like to thank (in order of appearance ) Miranda Hartrampf, Max, Hai-Etlik, Neyjour, Mwmagro, Viking, Diamond, Chashio, Naeddyr, Azelor, Arsheesh, Llannagh, Ilanthar, Freodin, Ravells and Lostatsea for the feedback, support and niceness With extra big thanks to Chashio and Diamond, for the extra big support!

    Not very keen of watercolors map but that's some nice job here. (Though still being a bit disturbed with the perspective on the map like said in the WIP)

    Beautiful work. This kind of thing makes me wish I had the motivation/time to play around with watercolors.

    Thanks, guys! Makes me very happy to hear

    By the way, Max, just out of curiosity: why are you not so fond of watercolor maps?

    Eh well I don't really know. Many of watercolor maps I've seen looks a bit childish to my eyes and I often find them a bit too "flat". This said, your two last ones (this one and the one you did for the lasdt lite challenge) could make me change my mind about it
