    Map Fantasy Maps

    Hello, I'm new to the forum and though the better introduction is to post a few maps.

    Welcome to the Guild!

    Beautiful maps!

    ** Edit ** Sorry Neon, I thumbnailed the images in the OP and there were 6 (one over the max) so I've attached it to the bottom of your post).

    Cheers

    Vibrant and colorful. You obviously have a good grasp on the tools. I think that exposure to the rest of the community here will do for you what it has done for many other... only faster. Here's some rep for what was obviously a lot of work and for teaching yourself a lot of the techniques.

    Interesting style. It, especially the oceans, gives me an impression of maps on translucent plastic or possibly glass.

    Very nice indeed! It has a really vibrant, crisp and individual feel to it. What font are you using for the labelling? I really like it.

    Best

    Holy crap, where have you been hiding yourself these are awesome, especially the text and water.

    Awesome indeed. The colors are so bright and vibrant, but not overdone. I love the textures, particularly the ocean one. The text is well-done, too...I particularly like the designs around the name if each map.

    The mountain style is really unique and interesting. The execution of it varies a bit, in my opinion...in some places it can look a bit too crystalline and the ridgelines too straight and uniform (unless that's what you're going for). But in other places, it looks outstanding.
