    Map The Great Arhuul Empire

    Trying a little bit different style this time.

    Map done in PS, shields in Illustrator.

    Nice work! I like it!

    I'm more of a "realistic imagist" sort of artist (which doesn't make sense by the way), but I can tell you really know what you're doing. It looks much more stylised, with big, iconic mountains and hills and forests--and it really works nicely with the map. The color pallete reminds me of desert and badlands, for some reason--is that what you're going for?

    It's great! I enjoy it quite a lot!

    Thank you. I wanted to give the northern border indeed a strange and barren look, I guess I succeeded. ;-)

    Thanks a lot. I used a fantasy name generator for this map.

    Very nice. I assume you created each of the mountains yourself by hand?
