    Default Ędorn Drėsirasar

    Hi,
    I'm new to the forum, but I've been lurking around on here for awhile.
    I used to draw simple maps when I was a kid, but recently I have really gotten into drawing highly detailed fantasy maps.

    Ędorn Drėsirasar (Southwestern Ędorn) is just a portion of my largest continent on my fantasy world Pęsė. All the labels for geographic/political terms are mostly in the language I have sort of started called Helisinar, which in my own fiction is an Elven language, along with the script. I already have done several other maps that are in my world.
    This is the first one that I have redrawn on a 18" x 24" paper. This is not a computer generated map using GIMP or Photoshop; it's completely hand drawn.
    I do want to say that I have taken some inspiration from some of the maps that other users have posted, but with my own drawing style.

    Wow !! Nice work. I can appreciate the time and effort that it takes to draw a big map like this (I worked on a hand drawn version of a big city in my campaign setting for almost 15 years) Welcome to the Guild and have some rep for posting a great map in your first post

    I'd say it took about 30-50 hours; I spent about a month working on it usually about 2-3 hours per day.

    I do plan on re drawing my two other maps that I have done. I actually did them on 12" x 18" paper, but I want to re design them and draw the maps on larger paper so I can get more detail.
    So do look forward to some more of my work in the future.

    First off, welcome to the Guild. Second, that is a very lovely map! I'm not surprised it took you 30-50 hours to produce it. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Cheers,
