    Default The Island of Hibeos

    Hello Everyone!

    This is the first map that I've made without any influences from the works of others, meaning that I had to develop my own techniques in Photoshop.
    It is a pretty small map (2000x2000 px) that I've been working on for a couple of days now, from time to time.

    I wanted to try some new techniques, and I think I found a nice way to give maps a rough, sketchy feel, almost as if they were painted or drawn by hand.

    I tried many different ways to get my end result and I also learned a lot of new things, for example, I started creating my own brushes in Photoshop to give the sense of the map being handmade, and I created icons for villages and ruins etc. to make it easier for me in the future.

    The font I used for the island's name is called "Aquiline" and is available for free at

    Many aspects were held in mind when I drew the map, like the climate and history of the island.
    If anyone is interested in my thoughts while drawing the map, I could update this post later on
