    Map Aged National Map of Maloumba

    I decided that this map deserves a thread of its own.

    This was inspired by the recent Schwari map style at this thread which some of you probably already saw here:
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...HWARI-Maloumba.

    After seeing the Schwari scroll next to the blue national map (below left) it was obvious to me it needed some attention. I tried to give it an old style but unlike the hand-drawn scroll this map would have been printed and then colored by hand. Don't pay much heed to the blue map it's there for before & after comparison using the same data and putting it through "the treatment" in photoshop.

    I love the vintage look. You pulled off the aged parchment look to perfection. Love the wax seal, it was a very nice touch!

    Dude that's smokin hot. Looks so authentic that you'd never know it wasn't made 140 years ago.

    Beautiful job on giving it the aged/antique look.

    Very nicely done! I like the watermark/emboss on the right too.

    Very nice. Visually impressive and suggestive of on-going history. Probably an exciting place at the time this map was made.

    That is a very nice aged look!! I would have bought that on Ebay as the real thing. Have some rep.
