Just posting a map I made for an 11th grade student of mine who is writing a fantasy novella (not for publication, just for the enjoyment of the experience).
I created this in Photoshop over two nights; it's a "hack job", really, for I basically lifted elements from 3 or so maps I like, played around with them a tad, added some graphics I sketched over, and voila! I'm not breaking any new ground here, just creating a "book-like", fairly typical map of a hero's journey. Fun to make, though!
Nice! I like the little touches such as the circle stain and flipped up corner.
I just love your work, Don.
The texture on the paper is gorgeous. I feel inspired to go out and create something everytime I see your work.
Yeah pyrandon, you never fail to enlighten us with your creativity every time you set pixel to digispace...such a simple map, and yet so capable of getting its point across as art and function. Nice work!
