I am recreating my map of Westeros. Here's progress so far.
I've previously posted a map of the North I created last summer. One of the comments I received was "why not do all of Westeros?"
So now I am :) I will also be adding Essos soon.
This map is being created at a very high-resolution. The printed final version will be about 8ft tall.
My goal is to recreate this fictional world with as much realism as possible, making the viewer forget that they're not looking at a real place. For this reason, I've emphasized the terrain by using the same processes I do for maps of real locations.
The next steps before I move on to labels and political features will be to add additional landscape textures, details along the shore, and an indication of various depths in the ocean.
Just thought I would share these early stages of progress. I welcome any criticism and feedback you might have.
Thanks for taking a look!
