Map 3 by nian. Work in progress =]
hello. Long time no see =]
I was working on a strange map of Japan but my pc crashed and I lost it. Too bad since I spend on it like 10 hours. Then I lost my login and password, but I'm finally back. =P I want to show you my work in progress here. It's far from finished though. =]
Since you prefer symbols and work on Japan maps...
I really don't know how helpful this will be for you, but since you prefer map symbols and brushes (made by others) and you seem to work on Japanese flavored maps, I have a bunch of symbols I made about a year ago and are in the Map Elements Forum.
Because I too create lots of Japanese style maps, and I'm a bit of an artist, I desired mountains and terrain features that resembled Ukiyo-e Japanese print art for that extra bit of Japanese nostalgia.
Here's a link to my symbols in that forum...
Here's my February 09 map challenge entry where I used these symbols to create a map of Japan during the last year of the Genpei War, 1185,
I hope that helps you!
