    Default Draconspire – Pathfinder

    Hi, just finished a map for the continent of Tharstelding, which is part of the Draconspire Campaign setting for Pathfinder. This is a commissioned piece and copyrighted. You can find details on the campaign world at PathfinderDB.com. Cheers, DJ

    Beautiful as always.

    Love the colours. Love the sea especially. I'm having a little trouble reading the river and lake labels, but I'd guess that comes from the standard tension of drawing a beautiful map and then not wanting to cover it all in text

    Great stuff - and repped. Nice logo too by the way.

    Thanks man! the map size is A3 (about double letter size, so about twice the on-screen size as the map shown) and the labels were created to be readable at that size. But indeed labelling maps always is a tricky job for me (still need to improve on that). I didn't think about it but it's good idea indeed to have labels readable at half-size format at 100dpi as well. Btw, I didn't make the logo but it looks good I agree. cheers, DJ

    Okay - on an A3 map that will read beautifully. No need to worry about it being tricky at half scale - I can still read it which is great!

    Dang, man...can't rep ya. Wonderful work, has an almost tactile feel to it.

    That is beyond awesome. I'd like to live in your head for a couple of hours and get me some of that talent.

    Sweet weasels that's awesome! Dig the whole thing..very artsy which I like.

    I also like the way the main landmass doesn't fill the entire map....or in other words they layout. Great job DJ.

    edit:rats, I can't rep you either...have to go spread some more love.
