    I must be very humble or something, but I don't think it holds a candle to your maps, Torq, or GPs or especially Bohunk's, Torstan's, Ascension's and Toff's whose maps I just salivate over everytime I see them.

    I think it may have something to do with looking at the same thing for a week rather than seeing it all at once when it's finished.

    Love it - though now I won't be able to look at that peninsula the same way again.

    As for the different styles - I think it has something to do with knowing precisely how something is constructed. I look at maps like these and don't really have the first idea how to put one together, whereas I know all the dirty secrets that go into mine

    I think you might be right...I think I'm cheating somehow.

    Although I'll tell you what, the final layer on this map was a parchment texture which I set to multiply and lowered the opacity a bit....the effect was amazing, it deepened all the colours and made them richer but in a way in which they still all worked with each other. A curve layer adjustment (with the usual S shape) on top of that and thing just came alive.

    Absolutely astounding! Dude, that rocks...hard! The colors are simply perfect and evocative of something only slightly grungy despite being old. I like the mix of "real" terrain (mountains) with other artsy elements (rivers, text). Think I prefer the bold coast...brings the style together for me but I like it either way. Excellent stuff, bro.

    I'm so glad you said that! That was exactly the look I was shooting for (in empathy with the book) - mixing real and graphic is usually dangerous. Tut coming...I't's already 3/4s written....you won't believe how easy it is.

    Beautiful map there. Is there going to be an outflow on that lake next to Shaktur Rep heading your way if I am able.
