    Wip An as yet un-named island

    A little project for fun and to expand on some ideas from previous maps.

    So far I'm working on the ink layers in Inkscape. I'm going to augment it with some watercolourish colour for contrast later. Otherwise, I don't really know where I'm going with this.

    This island was discovered by the great explorer of the khazi peoples named Argumbred od Shokta in the year 87 of the Hollow King Mashtbron dun Yabaktey and he named it UR N'ASHTER after the Hollow King's great daughter, the merciless Blood Princess Ashteru din ya M'ashtbrey.

    I couldn't resist, sorry. I like the mountain hatching, but think the hills are maybe a bit too narrow and too obviously divide various river basins.

    Heh, thanks. I kind of like the spindly, artificial look of the hills. I want to give it something of the flavour of a map drawn by a pre-modern cartographer, without he aid of air photos and surveying.

    Anyway, here's an update with some more hills plus lakes, cities, and roads.

    Thinking of old maps of the "New World", if you draw it wrong, it will look pre-modern !

    Colour, texture, and placement of labels. As yet the names are placeholders, I'll make up a language generator to fill them in later.

    Your colours are simply brilliant. I like it; it would be nice to see a bigger one.

    looks great and very nice colors you've chosen - the west seems a little empty, but you might have plans for a legends or something there later on ...lot of names to put in *lol*

    Yes, the sea to the west is going to have some stuff dropped in. The names are going to be inserted automatically. That's why the placeholders in the map say whether they are on the coast, a river, inland, or on a lake, so the generator can give them the appropriate name. I'm far too lazy to paste them all manually.
