    Map Slyrn - Fantasy map commission

    Hi guys,

    This map was commissioned for an online fantasy game project. I went with brighter colors than I use to do, as requested by the client. The map is 12x12", digitally hand-drawn in Photoshop.

    Very nice map as usual... and I love those circles around the big cities! I think you used something close on another map for a game, but can't recall which one... because you are making too many good maps too quickly

    As always amazing. I love how effortlessly you are able to change the climate throughout map, something I have a really hard time with...

    As you say, perhaps a touch brighter than necessary, but it achieves excellent effect in differentiating "zones" of the world. Of course it does beg the question, just what is a Slyrnian League? LOL. Symbols are nice, simple, clear and I kind of like the halo effect, even if I don't know exactly why its there.

    Another fantastic map, as usual. Your clients certainly do get their money's worth! And as usual, I can't rep you

    Cheers,

    I love the forests and cities in this one! Not sure about the colors, trying to figure out how to explain it… My eyes are drawn to the ocean, it has the most interesting color in the map. Maybe not a bad thing though

    Absolutely no idea Well the local unit of measure obviously though I don't really know the length of a slyrnian league

    Artistic licence (oh and also to slightly enhance the main cities)

    Hehe, I went with a slightly desatured ocean color at first but I wasn't really satisfied with it so I did some brighter/deeper color for it.
