    Default May 2011 Challenge Entry - Empire

    Not quite sure what this is going to be named yet, but I'll be going for some sort of norse inspired empire spanning many islands and continents. The style will be an evolution of my Celinir map.

    Looks good. There's some clear directional ridging that looks like a bump map artifact on the NW side of a couple of the mountains that might be worth breaking up a little.

    Love the colours - but at the moment they're not making me think Norse. The warm colour palette speaks more of a Mediterranean map to me. Love the broken coastline and islands - good stuff!

    That looks great. Congrats on 500 as well.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
