    I've got a question though.
    How did you do the mountains?
    Did you draw them on real paper or in photoshop?
    What tool did you have? Some special brush in ps?

I decided to use Johannes Blaeu's gorgeous mountains engraving (from his Atlas - maps of Scotland) as one of the main feature of the map. I made brushes set with them, though I had to mix and re-work some of original drawings, notably to make the bigger mountains. I mixed those brushes with my hand-drawn stuff along some self made engraving style brushes/patterns.
    Guess it answers your question

    Yeah, I read that, but it didn't answer my question exactly.
    I wanted to know, if you've drawn some of those mountains completely by yourself in the style of the others on paper and scan them or did you 'enhance' parts of them in photoshop?
    With the question on the brushes I would like to know in which line thickness you worked to draw the mountains. Did you draw/scan them bigger and scale them down?

    Hmm... no I enhanced parts of them with photoshop by mixing/resizing/erasing parts. Some lines were re-drawn but only a few. I also made brushes from the hatching shadows to be able to add some on certain parts to fit the mountains montage. Moutains brushes were made from numeric maps of the atlas so just same size as originals. For the other hand-drawn elements I used to work with a 0,1mm ink pen, scanned bigger then scaled down

    Yeah, that's what I wanted to know. Thanks for sharing those details.

    At the moment I'm trying to reproduce this method of mountain drawing
    for a completely hand drawn map. It works quite fine.

    It is a mesmerizing universe. The way you organize the space make the shapes melt together and become one another.
    Thank you.

    Hello! I'm playing Dungeons and Dragons 4.0, and this awesome map you've done would be perfect to my campaign. Could you send me de .psd files to my email, please? Cause I just wanted to change the city names. It would be perfect if you could do this for me.
    My email is : thiago_assis@rocketmail.com

    Thanks since now! Cheers!

    I really just ask myself, what this map should have had in addition to become a featured map.
