    yea Ill make it more like 2 words

    and its okay, my original idea was Atlantis, but I decided to modify it so that its a continent that may or may not be Atlantis, and that may or may not be from our earth



    lol I just realized that as a book, it has very few words..... maybe i should fix that

    Finish the map part first then merge those layers together so that when you get around to distorting it to fit the curvature it will distort everything and you won't have to do every layer and possibly mess something up.

    tried it, but merging it ruins some things, like the ocean and the land, so that it doesnt look good at all


    oh well, Ill probably eventually find a way

    Ahhh nice to see the actual file now

    The book is a nice touch, will be keeping an eye (maybe even both) on your progress.

    @--> Steel General

    Lol yea it is nice to be able to see it, isn't it? lol

    Hope you run into a wall while your keeping your eye (or maybe both) on it!

    The edge of the page looks a bit pixelated but I will just chalk that up to low resolution for now. Otherwise it looks really awesome. Just one question, if it's 5,000 years old... why is it marked in modern English letters (and using English words like port)?

    hmm... good point


    Ill see about changing the font to make it look more ancient

    Maybe the Tengwar font? it looks sorta elvish, and u cant understand a word of it

    I recommend taking/finding some high resolution images of woodgrain/wooden tables and using it as a background instead of the seemless tile woodgrain... The background feels a bit out of plcae compared to the slickness of the rest of the image
    Something witty and pithy

    yea Ive been working on the background, and made a new table one, but if nobody likes it then Ill take a picture of one of the tables around my house, all of them are wooden

    Okay made some adjustments


    Changed the wood background to a custom made one (does it look better?), made it so u cant see the corner of the map through the crabs, added mountains, added a picture in the left corner (just in case your wondering what it is, its the Throne of the Sea King), added words to make it more like a book (no they are not actually meant to be read), and added shading to the pages. I added the shading just as a last thought, cause I realized that when books pages curve like the ones in my book do, then the page(s) are probably lifted up a bit, so their should be shading.


    So yea, hope it looks better
