The map that i'm going to make is kind of archeologic map of tribes that lived in my Homeland (today North-East part of Poland and piece of Lativa) in early middle ages 1000-1300 a.d. I gathered a lot of info about names of most important wooden forts, names of lands, few battles, border lines etc. It is very important to keep the natural lines of rivers, lakes, and coast line of Baltic Sea. So i have many historical details to include, but still i want the map to be stylized like it was made centuries ago by some monks. I work on photoshop cs6 and illustrator cs6, but i have to admitt that i am newbie and this is my first map. I need technical support, can i count on you guys?
