    Map World of Balor by TheRedEpic

    Hey All,

    I have reposted this map after some extensive work. I wasn't thrilled with the final product so i went back in an put some more hours to bring it up to snuff. I think its got a bit more cohesion in it now, and overall flows much better as a piece. Check it out!

    *Edit- Now when you view it normally and zoom in, it appears as the size it should be. Originally, the detail shots were way too close and looked rather frightful.

    ***UPDATED MAP***

    As usual, great work Jared. Your compass is a gem and I love the details overall (not fond of the landmass shape but I guess it's not your part and some odd overlapping buildings in the Vale, but this one looks pretty awesome zoomed out)

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I actually like the low quality version better It looks more authentic to me. But awesome job either way The scripture along the border is really neat.

    che figata pazzesca!

    ehm, sorry, the italian inside is coming out... i think the correct translation is somewhere between COOOOL and "awesome" and "it blows my mind"
    Maybe the only thing a little bit strange is the shape of central continent, but hey, who cares?

    By the way, i really love this color scheme: it is not "realistic" or "historical", but i find it ... mh.
    It's the "right one", i cannot explain.
    I want to try something similar in the future...

    Nice map and icons as usual !

    I'm just wondering : have you tried a different style of background than your white texture (which is very good and makes out the elements very well)?

    The color scheme is very cool and different. Nice work.

    Hey Everyone, thanks so much for the comments!

    However, this map kept nagging me with little niggling design errors and flaws, so i went back in a made plenty of adjustments on it to bring it up to snuff. Now when you view it normally and zoom in, it appears as the size it should be. Originally, the detail shots were way too close and looked rather frightful.

    Hope you like the updated map and let me know any comments and such

    Very well done. I like the colors and the way you did the water.

    Fantastic! But I would expect no less from you.
