    Default WIP Selvarin - Fantasy map

    Time to post a new WIP here. The current project is a fantasy continent named Selvarin. The map is 26"x36" ( 7795x10866px) - uploaded WIp is 50% sized. There's nothing that much done but the land mass (colors are temporary, to delimit the sea/land) so this first post is rather to start the thread than show an advanced start. I'm currently working on compass, borders and a fresh new set of hand-drawn mountains.

    how long would you say it takes you to get a set of mountains finished for a map this size?

    Hmm..hard to say. I already started to draw last week, I did it when I had some spare time and I didn't really check the total time I spent on it. So far I have 400ish mountains (hills includes) but it still needs a bit of work and I'll probably add more

    That heraldry is mouth-watering. I see you like circular symmetry like I do. And those map symbols are excellent.

    Love the heralds. Great work. I really like the color palettes. Rustic.

    I agree, the shields are awesome! Not such a big fan of the mountains. It will be interesting to see how this will turn out. Keep it coming, Max.

    Sure : draw the basic shape of the shield in PS, duplicate it to make and inner outline, first one set to normal, second one set to luminosity at 40% opacity. Add a textured layer/adjust color behind them (each shield has a specific textured layer(s) ), add distressed/aged touch all around the shield with one or two layers brushed with several brushes. Then add symbols ( a mix of vectors/PS drawing work) and you're done

    @Eilathen : Personal tastes or something bothers you about the mountains? Most of the time, I use to draw a new set for each map I make and I needed a lot of them for this map so I went with more classical ones for it since I want to focus more on some other things on this map ( heraldry,territories borders, labels...) but I'm pretty satisfied of how they turn for now.
