May 2011 Challenge Entry - The Free Republic of Espantia
So, first of all sorry for not posting for a long time (I think it must have been a year) but my interest in mapping seems to be tidal and so sometimes it's on and then it's off again. But I didn't want miss this challenge since these are exactly the maps I love. I could sit hours abouve Atlases and study the maps in there just to see how this city is named and where this road goes to. And how beautiful the colours are selected. And this is my approach here, I want to take a piece of land I created in an earlier map (I wasn't very satisfied with it and then I abbandoned the project) and fill it with live. And I want to play with colours and linestyles to make it look good.
To give an overlook first the map I used to fill (with some borders in it drawn for the competition), and then the first three countys I worked out.
