    Wip Old Empire of Lorn - Fantasy world map

    Hi,

    I'm planning to work on a bigger project than usual : mapping the world of the Old Empire of Lorn. Actual size is 7441x7016 px (63x60 cm) and I'll probably split it in 6 A4 maps. First step: the lands (light grey on map, white is sea) -map sample is 4000x3772 px-

    Some update : I added bases textures, some portolan lines and made engraved-like coastlines waves... I'm still wondering how I'll work on this map, the .psd file is already so big

    Working on some brushes now. I've decided to use some Blaueu Moutains from his great atlas of Scotland. Here what I've done so far (I still need to do some individuals moutains though). I also did some trees and a few scribbles for the terrain. Jpgs are half the actual size.

    Great work so far! I think you're quickly becoming one of my favorite artists here.

    Thanks much Vellum. Taking a look at old cartographers work is only a pleasure and Blaeu is one my favourites. For the border, I sketched the whole thing fast then used some old coastlines brushes I made long time ago to build the land mass. You can easily draw this kind of border with a pen but due to the big size of the map I wanted a more comfortable way to do it. Next update coming soon today (nothing that much, some compass, a little change in bases textures colors) and still working on a few brushes. Then I'll test them.
