    Post Sundor - Testing another approach

    Hello there!

    Progress on my world map has been rather slow lately, I've just moved to Japan so there hasn't been much time for cartography.

    This time around I thought I'd give HandsomeRob's atlas style a try. I haven't got FT or Illustrator so I'm doing everything in CS4 and Inkscape (haven't really figured that program out yet, but I'm learning).

    Here is my first WIP, I'm done with the rivers and lakes, and I'm just about to start on the landtextures.

    (There are two lakes which aren't connected to rivers, this is intentional since they are crater lakes).

    lovely and clean. Very a la Handsome Rob...but tell me, how did you get the mountain shadows without using FT? It works really well.

    I painted a height map in photoshop and then used these tutorials; http://www.shadedrelief.com/cp28/relief_tp.html and http://www.shadedrelief.com/shading/Swiss.html
