    Very pretty maps indeed. I love the effect of the white text on the map - it stands out surprisingly well.

    Wow, those are great! I'll be a little contrarian and say I really dig the arted-up parchment edges. They turn this from merely a map to a display of art, imho.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.

    I've really dug your work ever since I stumbled onto it at deviantART.

    In particular, I really like the balance of many colors with the old, worn map look.

    My only question is if in the world of your Isarshael map, there is a country named Koronna Light??

    Praise Kudos, great style!

    Kudos, great style - repped - I love the quality in everything!

    Back to the parchment border issue - I love the use of parchment, especially damaged and folded effects, however, in the case of your maps it seems more a "framing" of the art, rather than an effective parchment styled map.

    What I mean, when I use folded, damaged parchment, the color, texture, damage and fold continues across the entire map, done carefully not to overly distract from the map itself.

    The art is so clean, that it clashes with the parchment - just an opinion.

    Otherwise great stuff.

    Thanks for all the comments guys, very helpful.

    The border ideas from everyone are all good, looking back, i really need to tone down the borders, they are too busy for there own good! In the next couple maps, i will calm the borders and try not to frame the piece.

    Thanks a bunch everyone, should have some work coming out soon

    I love your style.

    In fact I'm a bit more of a fan of these types of maps then that of the more "artsy" ones.

    I'd love to learn how to make similar maps.
