    That's beautiful and a very individual style. I'd love to hear more about how you went about creating it. Especially the mountains and the forests...any chance of a close up of them?

    lovely work, Arronis!

    well thanks! Well I went the old ways by sketching out the continents on seperate sheets and scanned them in Photoshop CS3 then I found some nice brushes on DeviantArt.com by seaching for "old map brushes" I think and after that I improvised.

    Here's a close up like you asked

    Arronis, this is very, very impressive! A great map and a rather original style--hard combo to come by anywhere! I also really, really like your color choices; they work together exceedingly well. Wow. Great work.

    How did you acheive the grid overlay? Was that an image you found or did you create the lines?

    The close-up, unfortunately, loses a bit of the allure for me, for individually when seen closer the elements are at different blue levels and detail; these are not noticable from afar, though, so when finalizing the image I would keep the end product from zooming in too much and alerting viewers to this fact.

    An awesomely impressive first map post! I look forward to seeing more from you and picking your brain for your input, too!

    Yes, Don has got it spot on really. Its a fabulous map at a larger scale. I particularly like that slate gray background and also the nice parchment effects too.

    I haven't seen anyone ever use anchor points to signify moorings either and thats a nice touch.

    You should post more when you are able.

    wow guys thanks alot for the great comments! I didn't expect such impact for my map and I'm really glad you guys like it!

    And about the grid: Yeah I did it by using the shape tool in Photoshop and used the line tool and voila!

    I will try and post new maps every now and then when I'll be able too I promise!

    Thanks again!
