    Default A Political Map Korachan and its environs following the Events of the Great War...WIP

    A W.I.P of a personal map I'm working on at the moment. The map is going to be in the style of a later 19th century political map (so no mountains or forests, not that any forests exist in the depicted region!), but expect lots of different labels and small insets and dry river beds and industrial/raw material locations (foundries, quarries, open cast mines, ruins etc.) and a lot of labels. If im happy with the results of this map i'll probably use a similar style for all future atlas maps.

    I'm doing something similar at the moment, 19th century-esque political map, so this will be interesting to follow. And it would of course be interesting even if I wasn't doing something similar

    Mind if I ask what projection you are using? I've looked at tons of maps from the period and almost all seem to use the same, the one you have picked. I'd love to use it as well.

    I am still very unsure about mapstyles Beyond the 18. Century. Most Time i relate more to classic Copperplate styles like J. Blaeu's Atlas Maior. Nevertheless i can fully understand your choice of styles and texture in your Atlas.

    I really like it and hope to see more. What software do you use to get such a clean line?

    well the world is pretty advanced and (tech-wise, at least) is comparable to industrial-age England so i figured a map-style fitting of that period would better convey it (though to give a bit more information, it's an industrial age that's stagnated for a very long time on an old world with nearly spent resources, so it's reaching the end of this age. The timeline goes on for about another 100-years, by which point its a bit more of a post-apocalyptic world with people competing over what remains of resources and most empires having crumbled due to ruined economies and starvation, amongst other things

    though illustrator/inkscape would be better for such lines, i just used photoshop and a 4px normal brush

    Thanks for the projection info, maybe it isn't the same but it's similar enough for me

    How do you do the stripes near your coasts ?

    Other than that I really like it. It's very clean-looking !

    Oh wow, this is going to be great I think! Did you make the paper texture youself? It looks really good.

    I really like that soft blue color palette. This should be cool to watch develop...
