    Default The World of Spriggvärld

    This is my first map, done in Adobe Illustrator and later transfered to Photoshop. I've included a link below that my players will be using that uses the google API to allow you to annotate the map.
    (Its a great website and the service is free, if you guys don't know about this already!)

    I am planning an atlas version of this map already as this is the map the players will be using and one of the things they will find out is how similar the map is to the real world (Its pretty similar minus a few key points).
    The map is supposed to represent the world several decades ago and they will be surprised to find how much it has changed...

    Whoa! This is pretty awesome map. Except for the name. How do you pronounce the ä?

    "\ ä \ as in bother, cot. The symbol \ä\ represents
    the vowel of cot, cod, and the stressed vowel
    of collar in the speech of those who pronounce this vowel
    differently from the vowel in caught, cawed, and caller."
    ??guess??

    Wonderful map.

    I would like to see the original illustrator version, just to make out what you added in PS.

    You can see the progress here:

    I did very little work in photoshop compared to illustrator, I messed with the layer blending mode a bit and added the water lines. I did have to redo the labeling since I didn't like the way they turned out in Illustrator (Also its easier doing it in Photoshop).

    That's really cool! I like the feel of it in general. It seems like it could've all been done by hand.

    Aside from using a computer for all my input everything pretty much was using a wacom tablet drawing all the lines in by hand I am not good with fancy photoshop effects so all the little details and lines were done like that. The shading/fine lines took a ton of time and I was really sick of coloring mountains after a while...
