    Post Raptor of Spain Insert Maps

    Alrighty! I'm not posting these to show off but so that I can have ready examples of where I'm starting from in terms of knowledge/ability. I am writing an alternate history at AH.com called the Raptor of Spain. I've been posting away for some 250 years of that timeline and am preparing a much larger map of the eastern hemisphere for 1025. Two places on that map have inserts and these are what I'm posting.

    Maps made in Photoshop 7. Pretty simple here just a blank European map png, and lot of layers from a base texture, a multiply layer map with white seas, a duplicated soft light map with blue seas, and borders using a black outer glow effect for the layer. The text uses the same black multiply outer glow effect. There are various adjustments in brightness and contrast.

    Not bad for a starting point! I really like your textures, and the borders look nice.

    And have some rep for posting your first map!

    Yeah, looks nice. Especially like the texture of the sea.
