    Default May/June 2011 Lite Challenge Entry: Svensksund

    Hi. Some of you may remember me.
    I don't know if I'm back, but I had an urge to do a map.
    The battle of Svensksund 1790 is Sweden's greatest naval victory to date. A greatly outnumbered Swedish force consisting of mostly rowed ships (galleys and frigates) crushed the Russian Baltic Navy and ended the 1788-90 Swedish/Russian war.
    The map is all made in photoshop, everything is hand drawn or generated in PS (except for the wood texture made in Filterforge). About 6h of work.

    HOEL!!!!! Ye Gods man it has been a while!!! Since the Fort Amsterdam map I believe. Good to see your smiling face in these hallowed halls again. And with a contest map to boot.

    Looking good

    Just a note, I put the WIP tag in there so the scrapper can put the map in to the Thumbnails. Welcome back, even if it is just for a few beers

    Great Work and Welcome Back

    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.

    Thank you.
    It seems I'm back for a while anyway, I'm working on my next map right now.

    I really like the way the map title title is set up.
