    Wip [WIP] Map for a New Campaign

    This is for a commissioned map.

    The requester has agreed to use this area for the process so stay tuned for developments.

    Here is the rough image provided:


    We're going for the old fashioned hand drawn style. The scale is 1" = 250 miles.

    We begin with the basic shorelines over a parchment like background. Second image is Geographical element locations so I can begin the drawings for them. Let me know where/if you want anything moved. I left rivers off as I'm not sure where you want them until we have the rest ironed out.

    Rivers added, grain added for water's edge.

    I've been working on the hills and mountains. The first batch I did I was not happy with so I redid it. This is round 2. Next up will be trees!

    You may be correct tilt. I have some polish to do on that still. I need to clean up the shore's edge and I have an idea to make it not look so floaty.

    I added a bunch of shadowing painted by hand with my mouse but now I have mouse cramps...LOL

    I think it was worth it because I think the hills and mountains look much better already.

    Update with trees.....uhg, now I know why Ramah made that TreeThingy. I think I'm cross-eyed. I also changed the parchment background a bit.
    I also shrunk it down 50% due to the .jpg passing the 4mb mark and the fact that the uploader keeps failing saying the file is invalid.

    I may have a tad too much color on the trees but that is easy to fix.

    Update: Some color in the Sea, Compass Rose, fiddled with the desert area for way to long for as little change as it made

    I should have indications tomorrow as to where cities and roads are wanted. This is full size but the jpg quality is at like 70%.

    edit: After posting I noticed I need to smooth a couple rivers that seem to have a bit of a hitch.
