    Map The heptarchy of Seferedh - fantasy map

    Hi all,

    My latest map is a personnal project, the heptarchy of Seferedh. With this one I wanted to combine some old classic map elements in a fantasy setting. I've drawn all elements of the map in photoshop (except floral ornaments which I adapted from some old map), mixing some 19th century style inspired stuff (map border/frame, political borders, some fonts) with some 17th century style inspired elements (mountains, red city icons, some fonts) and with a touch of subtle fancy fantasy (cities fonts, insets).
    Original size is 23"x33" (the uploaded version is around 65% size with less quality jpg). The WIP thread is here, with a bit of setting and some (little) tips about the way I did the border and the mountains. Thanks to those who supported it!

    As usual, comments are welcome, hope you'll like it

    Feel free to rate, rape or run away!

    Not another great map, Max?

    Can I vote to have Max officially banned from making the rest of us look bad?

    great stuff - the design of the borders and 'transparency' is really good.

    where do you get the borders/neatlines from? actuall books or a gallery or somewhere online?

    Thanks Freodin, glad you like it!
    @ Vorro : The borders are hand made, except the floral ornament bar and the flowers ornaments in the corners, that both were taken from an old map frame.

    ah who am i kidding...it's a fantastic piece of work You have yet to disappoint, Max! If i can, i'll rep you.
    Only nitpick - again, the forests are too sparse for me...it looks weird (you had that on one of your other maps as well...the one with the timeline iirc).
    I'm trapped in Darkness,
    Still I reach out for the Stars

    Exceptional work Max! I am a fan of your very subtle colour use, especially with the political borders. Your naming of things is quite evocative too!
