Chashio, I love this. Great work. Do you just hand draw the lines for the water?
Yes, the whole thing is hand drawn. Most of my maps are hand drawn in some form... whether digital or traditional. The compass began as a pencil sketch, which I re-drew on the computer so the line-quality would match the rest of the illustrations.
I really like the simple border you did on this map. It really goes well with the awesome look of the paper - did the paper look like that originally or did you add that in when you scanned the map into the computer? Either way, I really like the designs on the map too... nice compass.
Thanks. There is actually no paper. Everything in the image was digitally drawn and painted with my Intuos4 tablet in PS.
