    Default Shima - Commissioned Map

    Don't worry, I haven't abandoned the Panhartha map, but a guy in Canada and his friends saw that WIP and wanted me to do a map of their RP setting in that style. They've been kind enough to let me post the WIP here.

    It's a far east setting, with some Persian, Mongol, and Afghan elements. I was provided with a very rough sketch along with some basic landform and country info, but I've been given a pretty free hand in the design department. After some back and forth this weekend, this is the basic layout we've come up with:

    An update with some mountains and the start of the river systems.

    Wait....Diamond doing a commission?! I begged him for years and he was always very adamant. They must have something over you that you'd do a commission...right?! If you need help, post an ugly map and we will know

    On a more serious note: A good start! Although the mountains could still use some work to make them look more natural, imho. Looking forward to its development.

    Yes I was confused too, though you dont do commis. But cant wait to see this one finishing. (how many unfinished threads do you have? I just know it must be slightly more than mine )

    I don't usually do commissions, that's true. Something about this one just hit the right spots with me though; they want the works, map, heraldry, the whole bit.

    @SK: I think there's about 500,000 unfinished Diamond threads floating around...

    Glad I only have 450.000, but seriously I enjoy every one of your maps.

    Seconded!

    And to be honest, i'd rather see a thousand uncompleted map threads out of both of you than none at all! So keep doing what you are doing, Diamond and SK, i know i enjoy it every single time!

    You know you just gave me permission, right?
