    Default Perdon

    Hey there,

    I thought I'd give an early peak on where my returning mapping drive is taking me. This is mainly Perdon, an important country in my land of Vaniya...

    This is my second attempt at mapping this region. I once started a version in the same style as the Aronbor regional but I lost interest/had no time and so it got shelved. I decided to dust it off and remake it in an updated style. I'm aiming for a vibrant look that is quite removed from its western counterpart.

    I've redrawn everything - coastline, mountains, hills, trees etc.

    The labels on it, however, are a throwback to the previous version so feel free to discount them as I haven't adjusted them at all.

    I'm actually quite surprised at how well the elements on the map have lined up as I really didn't think I was that slavish to what was already there.

    Very nice! Already loved your old style a lot, but i think the new style will be beautiful as well. Looking very much forward to seeing it finished.
    Good to have you back, Ramah!

    I thought I'd update on where this map is headed currently. Not long after I made the last post I decided to bite the bullet and combine the two maps of Perdon and Aronbor into one map. To do this I also had to extend it a little from the previous joined image I made so that it made more sense to me in what countries it misses off.

    Here is an image of the new joined map showing the extensions I am adding...

    Those two maps are the original sizes of... umm... 4000 x 3000 ish, so as you can see this new map is pretty large. 9000 x 7000 or something. Anywho, I managed to spend the last few days getting some work done on it and here is where I am at now...

    Obviously, I've toned down the vibrancy that I was aiming for in the last post as it just wasn't working with some of the new stuff I added.
