    Default Maurarchor - one map, three styles

    Hey there,

    this is a map of the great continent of Maurarchor. It is an old land, which has been uninhabited for a long time. Centuries ago, in a war between humans and gods, the gods died, leaving nothing but darkness. This was the day on which the last people found refuge on Caeruin - the last continent. Since then, the surviving humans count the years beginning with the date on which Maurarchor fell into the darkness.

    But the darkness recedes step by step and the first settlements were already established there again. What will they (re)discover? Hopefully many things for which I can still do many maps. Long story short, here the map is in three different styles:

    The black & white style was created with the adjustment layer "Threshold", which makes a really nice result as I think.


    so far,
    Quabbe

    Really sweet!!!

    I prefer the last one myself. The middle one is a great diagram that's easy to see what's going on but the last olde worlde map blows me away!

    (And the b/w one really is an excellent result from such a simple effect)

    All three look very nice, and the place looks incredibly interesting. I have to agree though, the third is definitely my favorite.

    I'm afraid I have to agree with everyone else. The first two are really good but that third one is just awesome. Probably the best weathering I've seen on any map here. Looks like I could feel the texture on the screen. Great stuff.

    I really need to rep some more people so I can rep you again.

    I'll just throw my hat in the ring and agree with the others.

    Nice work!

    Quabbe - you seem to be quite the rising star here. Your work is really impressive, and seems to appeal to everyone! Keep up the really great work, I know I, for one, could learn a lot from you.
