might have to check that out myself
I'm thinking of perhaps something along these lines even if its perhaps 8-0 years too modern. I'm trying to find when these maps came into style to see if it's 'historically' possible. Though I'm worried the colours might make it a bit too busy
It would look very detailed, but it'd probably work quite nicely if you keep the colour scheme quite toned down. It might actually top the other options in terms of amount of effort to do though
Yeah same, it's by a mile the clearest way of showing the altitude, and it can look really nice too. Reminds me of the scene in Ender's Game where he draws the contour lines for an island, then makes his desk display it as a 3D object... *wishful thinking* lol
I agree, it would definitely look great, especially if you tone it down, but it looks like an awful amount of work!
That look would be perfect! At first, I didn't like it, then I saw how well it would fit with the other elements in your maps. I say go for it
Funnily, it would be quite easy to get that effect with watercolors. Layering thin red washes with a small round brush, letting the previous layer dry completely first, would give a very similar look, including the dark edges and the slight texture.
I can only support the idea! Because it reminds me of my old atlas And because the first fantasy map I made, I had used this kind of mountains
Well, hell yes is all i can say! That'd be a very nice style. Hope you can pull it off, Vorro!

Still I reach out for the Stars
