a bit more progress on the 'big one'. i've left some layers (the main map itself,constellations and the grunge) out for this update. the first pic is going to be a map charting the borders of a particular region over a certain amount of time, using different coloured layers to represent the ebb/flow of the borders over the years. a block of descriptive text will be in the bottom middle of the map (to the right of this upload).
the other pic is some small progress on the text boxes for the moons. im trying to stick to the somewhat odd layout of the period I'm drawing inspiration from - id not normally write text like this, though if it was good enough for the real world, its good enough for me
both pics really need clicking on to enlarge. these are 100% size, though are are cropped in on a very small area (you can probably tell by the size of the curve of the globes). i still need to add the paper texture back (i remove the layer while im working on it to help make things run quicker) and scuff the border lines to make them look more hand-drawn. though that can all come later, once the major areas are blocked in. im also having trouble coming up with sigils for the 22 gods that im happy with. im aiming for a cross between astrological/alchemical/daemonic
summoning circles. once i figure those out ill have another portion of the map sorted out.
still lots and lots to do, in fact the more i add the more i realise i have left to do...
