    Default Old Empire of Lorn - Fantasy world map

    Hi Everybody,

    Here's my last map : the Empire of Lorn. Mix of hand-drawn and digital work.

    At the start, my goal was to mix some old engraving style and hand-drawn stuff to map this land to give it a touch of old feeling while supporting the fantasy aspect of the world. I decided to use Johannes Blaeu's gorgeous mountains engraving (from his Atlas - maps of Scotland) as one of the main feature of the map. I made brushes set with them, though I had to mix and re-work some of original drawings, notably to make the bigger mountains. I mixed those brushes with my hand-drawn stuff along some self made engraving style brushes/patterns.

    The original file is 7559x7016 px (64x59,4cm) at 300 dpi and the uploaded file you can see here is about twice as small (4000x3713px). WIP thread is here Thanks to those who give support and advices, especially The Hoarse Whisperer and Freehand 5.5.

    I hope you'll like it.
    Feel free to rep, rate, go away, throw rotten garbage to my head or whatever you feel the urge
