    Map The Kingdom of Fontarol

    My first map for the new year: the Kingdom of Fontarol.

    In the west the Kingdom has started to colonize another continent, while in the east the Royal Legions defend the realm against the bloodthirsty Draakens.

    Made in PS, mostly 'hand drawn', i.e. without the use of PS brushes.

    Good stuff, Sap. I bet this took a while to do.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Indeed, I worked on this at least 15 hours.

    Very nice - any plans on doing a 'colored' version?

    nice! A great start to the new year i'd say I love the balance in both land-shapes and dark/light contrast you used for the shading

    Great job! The hand-drawn style is superb!
    I would also like to see a colored version of this, if at all possible. The overall color tone would have to be very subtle, of course.

    Amazing Sapiento... have some rep
    This one is one of your best maps to date I think!

    Thank you all

    I haven't thought about a coloured version, but...why not? Good idea.

    Lovely work and really inspiring! Absolutely beautiful. I really like the inset and the little characters on the map.

    Beautiful map, Sapiento.

    This may be my favourite of yours yet.
