Hi everyone... mapping for a fantasy novel
I stumbled upon this website while trying to find out how to create brushes in PS. I have the beginnings of an atlas which I'm trying to do in a c.1700s style.
The basis of the story has been planned, and is in a specific region on my atlas (for which I intend create a region map and some island maps). It is important that I get the regions on the "old world" right, as these will help me to plan the migration of the various countries and races to the "new world".
I don't have any place names or anything yet, as I'm currently working on a translator in Excel to transalte from any input language into my fantasy language (my first language is complete), that way I can make the place names more meaningful and consistent.
I'm looking forward to finding some great tips, and sharing my own experiences.
This is where my map is now:
This is what I want to come out with:
So if there is anyone that has a particular interest in this age of maps, I'd love to hear from you.
