What software are you using for the digital version?
Probably just black and white. Cheaper to print, only 6 USD for the 22"x30".
Unfortunately, its on bond paper, I was hoping for somethign with a bit more tooth to it; not card stock, more like novel paper.
I tried adding texture to the mountains, but anytyhing I do just looks too dark to me. If I do color it, it'll probably be by hand, with color pencil. I would *like* to color it digitally, I've been trying different things, but I'm really not very good at it. Plus, this is supposed to be a "war map" and I don't think having something colored all pretty like would be something they'd invest in. Maybe colored political borders, but I haven't really found a good technique I like for that.
Photoshop Elements. Came with my Bamboo Fun. It handles large images supurbly also. GIMP with this same image (at full size/resolution) hangs alot.
I can print a full color map at 22" x 30" onto 190 gram Satin Photo media for $13.70 + shipping ($9 with tube) to anywhere in North America, more if shipped to anywhere else. Look at my Sig.
