    Wip To Sea Bump or Not to Sea Bump?

    Well first off, thanks to A and Diamond for help with the lakes, I think they look more natural now. Second, I've been working on some different methods for doing a sea shelf and bumps and such. I wanted it to look subtle. So far the picture on the right is the best that I've been able to achieve. However I'm not sure about it yet. What do you think, is it an improvement over the original flat sea color (pictured to the left), or does the original look better?

    Cheers,
    -Arsheesh

    That IS very subtle ^^ But i do like it better than the "all dark" version. Nice map!

    Will you work out the world-details as thoroughly as the Eriond-part you already have? A lot of work ahead of you
    Btw, any chance your Obsidian Portal will see an update with more fluff for all the regions? There are still a lot of empty spaces, and curious minds want to know

    I will probably end up doing multiple versions of the map, some of which will be more detailed than others. As far as my OP site goes, I do plan on continuing to update it as time allows, but life has gotten pretty full of late, and most of my free time has been spent on map creation. It's nice to know that people are still interested in it though: thanks for the encouragement Eilathen!

    Wip Eriond: An Orbital View

    Thanks Anannsul! So I've been playing around with transforming the map into a globe, and here is what I've come up with:

    Eriond: A World Map-eriond-western-view.png

    Just for fun, I also did a global rotation view of the planet (as seen below). Not sure how, if at all, this will figure into the final image, but it was a fun exercise at any rate.

    Cheers,
    -Arsheesh

    That looks great, arsheesh!
    Could you tell me what program you used to create the globes?

    Fractal Terrains I believe
    But I think you should edit that in photoshop to give it a atmosphere!

    Mh... I don't have FT, though. Is there another way to form a globe? A free one preferred.

    Umm.. Sphereize in PS? Map to 3D ball in PS? (Might be CS5 Extended that can only do that.) Umm.. Theres a few other programs that I can't remember right now though.
