    Default New map of Caeruin

    Hey there,

    this is a map of Ceruin in an old handdrawn antique style. Nearly everything was created by patterns and pathes.

    The map shows the first established countries of Caeruin in an early stage of age and those empires that are going to be sold to powerful merchant families. The light dotted lines indicate the regions that are for sale.

    Hope you like it.

    This is very well done. Nice job.

    I got a request if I could show the technique which I used to create the mountains. Of course I can, it works like this (with Photoshop):

    First, draw a line that is slightly thinner at one end, like the example in the attached image. Define it as brush preset, open the brushes panel and use the settings that can be seen in the picture (1).

    Draw with the path tool the outline of the mountains. Stroke the path with the brush. Change the path into a selection, contract the selection about a size which is 1/3 of the brush length (I used 6 px). Change the selection back into a path and stroke it again (2). Do this again and again until the mountain is filled completly with strokes (3).

    When you are finished, put a mask on it and fill the middle area with 50% grey (4). That's it.
