    This huge map contains an incredible amount of detail depicting a convincing landmass layered in history. There are some lovely touches like the way the neatline distorts to fit the graticule so that the divisions remain constant. Desaturated earthy colours and distressing give the map an old, hand drawn look.

All work is done in PS and a cheapo wacom tablet (cannot recommend a tablet enough - it speeds up work so much!). When I first started work on the map I had never used PS before and all my experience with PS comes from this and other doodles and lots of help from this site (especially the Saderan (sp?) tutorial). The original PSD is 300 dpi CMYK 41" x 61" and will be printed at full-size for my man-cave once I declare it done. The jpg this upload is based on is RGB 200 dpi and 41" x 61" and is about 75mb.

    Gorgeous Map.

    Only one criticism: Your longitude graticules are mislabeled. The graticule at 5° on the top, when followed down to the bottom, ends at the 10° label; Likewise 10° -> 15°, etc.

    Thanks! i actually spotted that a month-or so ago and updated the base PSD file!

    hey, been away for a while, only now saw this now!

    very humbling for this map to have been picked for the cartographers choice thanks to whoever suggested it, though i might be updating the original thread from time to time as i add to the map
