    Wip Continent and Kingdom of Luros WIP

    I still have a long way to go to completion, both geographically and politically, but I want to share the current state of my first digital map. It only displays regions and oceans at this time. Comments and critique are always welcome. I can answer questions regarding background info and whatnot.

    Here's a major update from the last one. I added 'biomes', rivers, cities, and roads. I still have mountain ranges as well as a few visual tweaks to make.

    The map's too large now, as i had to enlarge it to add the extra details. Here's the DevientArt Link.

    I don't like the look of the biomes, so I've replaced the water and land textures with a higher res version. Personally, I like it better this way. I'll get an image link up soon.

    That map looks quite good, what programs did you use? Anyways, it looks kinda like thinner + taller version of the British Island... (Not the Irish part) Anyways, how do you pronounce Vvara? It's quite hard to figure out.

    Looks nice! I like the font, it fits the style of the map.

    Kazou, it's just pronounced Vah-rah. Also, I greatly expanded the map. I'll link to it when I'm out of school and can access Devient Art.

    Thanks. I'm actually having an acquaintance who does calligraphy make some stylized names, which Im going to scan in to replace the current font.


    Oh, and to answer your question Kazou, I use GIMP.

    Oh cool, I use GIMP for grids and stuff, now I just want dirty and quick map drawn with paint... I know it sucks but GIMP takes way too much time for me *Is being lazy like usual*

    Ah, well, I love this newly-discovered hobby. I'm thinking of possible careers pathways.


    Anyway, here's the updated map. I'll also be putting it in the original post.

    Did I say it looks good? Scratch that... It's an awesome looking simple map (I like simple maps, too realistic ones give me a headache.). Too bad I don't have this kind of skill myself.

    I like it. It's quite simple by now, but it should be easy to add more elements. You're definitely on the right track.

    By the way, it reminds me a bit of Westeros, with its vertical orientation.
