    Wip October Entry: Sea Trade Guide Map

    Made the lines with inkscape and coloured most with GIMP, I still need to add labels, more shipping lanes and a title.

    The star chart in the corner is supposed to be used by the pilots of the ship to figure out what map they need to use and their approximate location (this is set on a world where the planet rotates at a 1:1 ratio with it's revolution around the sun, therefore the stars wouldn't move.)

    That's all I got =D

    I suggest moving the inset to an area less-occupied by landmass, like in the top left, but may be better not overlapping the frame. Nice to have a new hand on deck!

    Interesting stlye.
    I sugguest to clean up some of the green border lines, especially in the southern diamondshaped area, if this is not intentionally.

    The dashes of different frequency works surprisingly well. Looking forward to more.

    Last time I checked we still use maps in our lives... so "vector & current" is all shiney.

    That was an explanation for the need of a star chart in the corner. Sorry, I'm making up this intricate world to base my map around, as in there is no such thing as satellites but there are computers. It seems like I'm randomly saying things and I should stop now.
