    Default The Six Scorchwise Fiefdoms Of Clann Llocc

    So I actually (kinda) finished a map! This is a part of a six-map series I'm planning (and actually working on!).

    This map is the first, so still a bit inconsistent in places, but the general landshape and the fiefdom's borders as well as everything else is in it's right place. When all the maps are finished, I'll be putting them together in one large single document to display the whole of the island of Clann Llocc.

    It's all done in Photoshop, textures courtesy of CGTextures.com. Original WIP here.

    Cheers,
    Llannagh

    You put in the finished maps too fast Here's what i wrote in the WIP thread:

    It looks good overall but labeling really need more work to be nice and effective (typography choice, curves use, placement...)

    Well, as mentioned, I'm aware that it is still far from perfect. I messed up in the original document at some point due to my still being quite new to photoshop. To get this really polished would be very tedious and since I'll put this in the larger map anyway I called it. There will be an updated verson later, with better everything!

    Thanks though. True point on the river labels, at least that could've been resolved. Ah well, I'll go work on the better, bigger version now!

    Nice job, Llannagh! I like the general look and the painted style. There are still things that can be improved, but that's true of a lot of maps I guess. And I'm sure your next one will be greater
