    Post I'd think there'd be more participants

    I would think there would be more participants to this challenge than last month. Especially with the influx of Conquer Club members, this being more like a Risk map, than last month's challenge.

    I already know, that I'll be doing hand-drawn work with this challenge, also see using a parchment for the background. Though I plan to use some color, parchment sepia will dominate.

    I hope to "step it up" by trying a more refined hand-drawn style than my previous hand-drawn work. Though I'll be digitally placing most of the text, I think I'll try my hand at hand-drawn text, at least for regional, sovereign and city/town text.

    Good luck everyone!

    I might even throw my proverbial "hat in the ring" this month.

    thats whats confusing me, is it 100 miles from 1 corner to the other? and at that size, if i had the size of the image 800x800, would you be able to see (if barely) the villages and trees? cause im not really used to using villages..... except in larger scaled maps of mine


    oh and am i allowed to make it bigger? cause im used to using a minimum size of 800x800..... sometimes bigger

    I would think that the map would be larger in pixels than this original because it is very small. Its just a guide. I am like you in that my style is for a realistic view like a satellite image so that the towns would be really small in scale. If the map was 1000 pixels square then a pixel would be about 530 ft. So a village is just a pixel or two, a big town maybe 5. I think the expectation is to make a map that describes the locations as opposed to a photo real version of the terrain.

    yes... 100 miles from corner to corner, which would give you roughly ... 10,000 square miles of map... You can make the map as large as you want too I suppose.... the image is just basis from which to map from. making it 800 x 800 would give you 8 pixels per mile.... i'm sure you will see much larger maps than that ...
