    Post WIP: The Golden Age

    Hey All,

    This is my first draft using several tutorials to achieve an effect similar to the Birthright Maps and Lorrel done by Pyrandon.

    This is also my first post (I think?); however, I am a Long time maphead and have been hanging around this place since it first opened. Oogling all the great work. Wishing I had the chops.

    This is a mock up to see if I could achieve the desired effect. I'll have to replace the parchment background eventually. It is a wallpaper from Tor but it works to answer the "can I do this style map?" question. There is still a good amount of window dressing needed (locations, scale, topography) but this style of map is fairly minimalist.

    Eagle eyes may notice some familiar land forms. I design settings with a real location in mind for my research. Once I get to this phase I alter the topography a hair to make it less obvious where the source comes from.

    Anyone have any handy tutorials on designing trees and mountains? Anyone have suggestions?

    [PS - A few of you may recognize my more commonly used internet ID - Eosin or Eosin the Red.]
