That is Great !!
Here comes the new Papertexture including the Borders.
That is Great !!
Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

I will go sleep now, more will come tomorrow.
I tried to create new Icons with Images in it for map decorations, this resulted from an Commission about arabian Heritage Sites.
This is an example of the ORIGINALS and my interpretation for the Map :
Great paper texture Schwarzkreuz! I also like your new icons-images for the map very much. I cannot wait to see them used on an actual map. Are they meant to represent some sights that will be depicted on the map? The right one looks like it might be just that, the left one looks like some sort of artifact maybe? Are you planning to link those images to the features on the map in some way?
Here is a new test map. I hope to find a style I am satisfied soon.
I love how you are taking your time with this and working from the ground up. Unfortunately I am far too impatient and always want to rush in to the good stuff, then when it comes to adding the little details that can make a map come alive I am already bored. You already have those little details in. I'm jealous. :@
Looking forward to seeing more, man... oh, and belated congratulations on your degree.
Well, thanks Ramah, but this IS the good stuff for me 8D
I am pretty happy with the burned paper texture now and will create 20 of such now in 22x17 inch, 300DPI
Hmmmm, overall i like the result now after the sleep. I will Stick to it now, also the simple Frame will remain. I also do have an exam again next week, for my third Postgraduate degree, i have done parallel studies, which now ends. I will have a Master of Arts Fine art from the University of East London, Diploma Fine Art, Diploma Communication Arts, Postgraduate Degree Meisterschüler Fineart, but i am not shure if the last One is internationally accepted, so it depends.
ok here are the files #2-#7 , I hope you like it.
2 More Textures, ok I stop here, becoused I run out of ideas actually how to do more that actually looks different from the others, I will sure come back later but for now I have enoght backgrounds for quiet a few maps.
