    Post February '09 Challenge: A Political Map

    *** February '09 Challenge ***

    A Political Map.


    This month's idea comes from the challenge suggestion forum, compliments of joćo paulo.

    We are looking for a socio-political map. The style, era and scale are your choice. It can come from the real world, a fantasy world or a future world.

    A focus of this map MUST be political identifiers.... Flags, crests, banners or coats of arms must appear prominently on the work.

    Entries should be in by no later than Feb 24th 2008. Remember, February is a short month!

    Good Luck!!!

    As always, don't forget to review the General Challenge Rules.

    Post If I have time...

    If I have time to enter this month, I have an idea I might try out.

    Create a Japan based map, using my Ukiyo-e map objects then go socio-political between individual daimyo family controlled provinces, then doing colored borders with overlapping edges for different political entities... as I said, Daimyo controlled provinces, shinto religious strongholds, buddhist strongholds and areas of control. The Shogunate dominated areas vs. areas of opposition to the Shogun. Instead of flags or crests I would use those Japanese "crests" or family symbols.

    This could be interesting. Now if I can squeeze my Profantasy commission around this challenge!

    Sounds like a neat idea GP, hope you can fit it in... I have an idea for my entry already, just not sure if it'll work.
