    Wip My map ; WIP

    Hi !

    First I want to say I'm French, so don't worry about my english, it's "normal" ^^

    So I just finished my map, following RobA's tuto. What do you think of this ?

    If you want more information about my world and if you speak french, go to my website.

    And bravo RobA and Carthographers' Guild !

    Bienvenue,

    I liked both maps actually ! The second is a little prettier but I think the first is clearer to read.

    Thanks ! Ok, one of my friend agree with you. So I think it's true ^^
    I am actually doing a third, in parchment style. When it'll be finished, I'll post it.

    edit : on the RobA style map, I delete the old compass and put instead of the Carthographers' Guild's Compass ^^

    I agree with Redrobes. Either way, you have talent, but I personally prefer the first version and your parchment version.

    I agree. I like the original, too. The parchment version would be terrific for a hand-out. You could really push the water stains by blurring the map underneath them. It would make it even less legible, of course.

    Thanks. I thought peoples prefer second version, but I see it's not true ...
    The parchment version was realised with the help of RobA's tuto Creating old, weathered paper using the Gimp and with my "talent" ^^

    edit : because of yours remarks, I retouch parchment version : more blur underneath water stains ; drop shadow ; creases. What do you think ?

    Very nice. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

    As a side note, when posting, you can use the manage attachments button to upload a copy of your original map, and the post will show a thumbnail. When clicking on the thumbnail, the full size original will then show.

    I agree, the original is still a great map. It has a certain style and charm.

    One thing I'm hoping to be able to learn to do using GIMP and whatnot is to be able to produce different kinds of maps in different styles like this minimal extra effort.
