    Post Ascadia - A Fantasy World

    This is a map I finished earlier this summer, with a WIP here. The author of the book has given me permission to post it here, so long as an notice of copyright and place name ownership is provided. He also agreed to the CG reference in the map.

    This was created in B&W using my standard Gimp->Inkscape circular workflow. The forests were created with the help of my random density map script and custom Gimp brushes. Everything was from scratch for this one. Final colourizing was done using Gimp and (thank goodness for) my trusty Wacom tablet.

    Nice map. Looks like it will print well too.

    Yeah, that's purdy. I really like the varied tree styles and the way you made the border go behind the mountains (nice touch). I also dig the "coastline squiggles" (that's a technical term, I believe). The terrain in Brennador is super-cool. I want to set adventures there, or play in one.

    I shall attempt to rep you for this evocative map! And I'll probably, some day, steal your really cool rift valley concept.

    I'm the author of the novel, and the creator of Ascadia, and I once again want to express how fantastic Rob has been to work with in making my world come to life. I'm genuinely astounded by how well it turned out, and by the patience he's shown in the process with him and I going back and forth in making the map.

    It's better than I could ever have envisioned, and just hope that my novels and world can live up to their end of the partnership.

    Tremendous work, my friend.

    Great looking map. I wish it had a scale for distance (miles, leagues, other).

    Yeah. A scale was not wanted.

    For reference, it is supposed to be about the size of Australia:
