    Default Dreodae

    After a few posted WIPs, I think I'm finally ready to give this map my patented "Meh, that's prolly as good as it gets" seal of approval.
    This is a further development of my Oruss Bustan map style, equally patented as the "Yay, 10 hours spent on one 50px-by-50px area"-style.

    Anyway, this is your your basic run-at-the-mill fantasy world region, dotted with a bunch of city states (which are wildly out of scale, geography wise).

    Enjoy!

    I agree with the former comments: your map has a unique and appealing character all its own. Rep from me as well.

    Cheers,

    Has a bit of oriental line work in it, pretty cool.

    @Matrim

    I don't know about doing a tutorial. I think it'll be pretty confusing to follow, and it will also expose the arbitrary methods I used, because I simply didn't know how to otherwise do them. Most of it involves painting with the pencil tool, hard pixes,l and then going through a million steps to get some smooth lines. It could probably be done in a much more efficient way, I just don't know Photoshop, and painting in general, that well.

    Haha, I know what you mean, I wouldn't be able to make a tut either bc of the insane number of different things I try before I get the result I want. No worries though, I was mainly interested in the techniques used to get this result, wasn't planning on creating a map in this style. Just eager to learn, that's all
    Doodle it.
