    Default Another first map

    I decided to stop lurking for a bit and to post my first map
    I used Djeckspek's tutorial he posted on another thread(the one about Dragon Age style map).
    What came out is pretty different,though. I guess for a first try it came out nice.
    The map is for a LARP world. Sorry for the cyrilcs on the map

    O_O It looks so beautiful!

    The mountains are very unique and some of the greatest I've ever seen here.

    Thanks a lot for no longer lurking around and sharing this with us!

    Yeah, it looks great, maybe just more texturing layers but it looks really good.

    Very nice. The mtns almost look like the clothes laying on the floor in my bedroom. Maybe I should sketch them since they're just sitting there.

    That's the great thing about DJ's tutorial because it is hand painted everyone will have at least a slightly different look. Very nice, thanks for sharing.

    It looks very nice, and no need to apologize for text being in a script most of us can't read -- I often plan, and sometimes make, versions of my maps which are labeled in local idiosyncratic methods or scripts. Why, shortly I expect to be posting a lot of material related to the world for my new RPG storyline, and idiosyncratic labeling will abound on it. In that case it should be largely legible, since it's based on old english writing idiosyncrasies, like the tall s (using ʃ, or IPA small esh) and dicaritic marks over "y" to indicate various "i" sounds, and a few other idiosyncrasies which fit the style I'm using for this setting's writing and spellings. Fairly legible, but not strictly modern English use of Latin characters.

    I like the mountains, I always have difficulty with mountains because I always feel like when I mark off mountains and hills, I'm drawing in a perpendicular plane, and it should obscure things. I like the cloth-ish look on this in particular, as if it's a map made on a sheet of canvas rather than paper of some sort.
