    Default Trakorien - WIP

    Hello!

    I'am currently working on a map consisting of four islands. This map is part of a bigger map (yet to be made).
    The Attachements doesn't work for some reason, so I have provided the full size in the link below.

    This is the eastern island with some icons and names - I am still experimenting with the looks.



    Please drop a comment - all kinds are appretiated!

    Really nice map! I like the city icons and the font (what's the name of it?). The forest though look a litle bit much as a pattern. Don't know really why but I guess that the borders are a bit to sharp. You could try to make it a bit less distinct.

    I really love the unity of the colours you've chosen and the parchment texture for Paratorna. Really nice work and repped. I think the trees may look like a pattern because they do not overlap, but I think that's OK. I really like the city and town icons. The whole map hangs together really well.

    Very nice, great colors. Looks like something you might find in the front of a book.

    I really like it. Especially that island to the left which is kind of shaped like an A.
    I guess it stands for "awesome". Well done!

    I'm honestly in awe of this. I love how you've created regions using natural boundaries. I'm also a fan of the font used. Is it hand-drawn?

    Like the others before already said. Nice colors and nice symbols.
    The Font is also nice, but in front of the forrest and mountains it's hard to read. But I don't know if some sort of outline would ruine the look of the map

    Wow, thanks for all the nice feedback! I must say it's really encouraging!

    The font is called "Agent C" and it's a free font.
    I found it on http://www.dafont.com

    Thanks again!

    Dude, very eye-catching.
