WIP help! Where to find bordering/ Guilding for maps? Also just looking for advice.
Hey guys, been working on improving my map i've been working on. This is my first map I have ever made and am trying to get it to be at least half way decent. One thing I have been wanting to do for it is add border's, guilding, filigree, ect. whatever you call it. I have been having trouble finding ones I can use that I don't have to pay for. I would make it myself, but I am not technically skilled enough to make something that ornate.
if you dont know what im talking about heres some examples: http://www.cartographersguild.com/at...nfinalhalf.jpg http://www.cartographersguild.com/at...viking-1.5.jpg http://www.cartographersguild.com/me...s-reserved.jpg
Past that I'm just looking for some general advise, I know I need to fix my rivers, and in the last post I did I was looking for help on drawing plateaus (and I just haven't gotten around to drawing it yet) I also plan to change out my location Icons and names with different colors (though I'm not sure what color yet) and I may even end up drawing the map in more of a topographical style rather than the stamps that I have been using ( made by starraven Sketchy Cartography Brushes by StarRaven on deviantART ) just to make it a little more my own (also because i'm not sure I can draw my own stamps)
I have attached images of the map before and after the changes I made yesterday.
