    Wip Fantasy map of Lanzarote


    This is a map I'm currently working on. It's a commission from a friend, and it is the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, but with a fantasy twist. I still have to add a pirate ship, northwest of the island, two palm trees in the center of the island, mountains, all the lettering and some small details. I've gone to an ancient treasure map type, using the S.John Ross technique to represent the coastline.

    Things I've done so far:
    - Parchment texture using clouds, difference clouds and emboss
    - ragged border using a mask, as learned watching 'zombienirvana' videos (can't remember the author's name)
    - Landmass of the island handdrawn over a real map
    - Improved coastline with Oldguy's method (Noise-Blur-Threshold-Fill & Paint)
    - Created frontiers with a colored inner glow with (base colors with 25-50% saturation)
    - Colored land and sea with natural, but muted colors
    - Created some handrawn seamless textures and applied them to the land and sea
    - Added a border and grid
    - Added a title
    - Added ocean's name
    - Added some drawings

    Hope you like it, and if you don't, I really hope you tell me why not!
