    Map Novotera Occidens

    Hi, here is the commissioned Map for Mike Raynolds upcomming Novel set in western Novotera, a far outskirt of an old empire. The imperial Duchy of Caspin and the vast reach of Anurakh are central to the focus of this map, displaying the political and geographical surroundings of the Story. 6x9" 300 DPI

    Good map overall though the forests shade makes them floating a bit (a small neatpick : a part of the glacier lake seems to be erased -bottom right corner)

    This is the kind of map I want to make

    Or have made, if I fail miserably, lol

    Anyway, it's a lovely map, and I can't even find the flaws pointed out in the last post, even though I'm looking.

    It's beautiful

    Oh, nice one! I see you used your new mountains for this - they look great.

    Cool style! I really like the way that the title looks. Do you mind sharing how you did that?

    Copy the fontlayer, use gaussian blur on it and use colorburn Layer setup in 75% flow/density

    As always, very nice mountains! I also like the forests and the overall color choice.
    I am not that fond of the landshapes but i guess that you can not influence that very much as it was a commission.

    I hope we will start to see more maps out of you again, SK, you are missed.

    Wow, excellent map! Love the colors and your mountains are astonishing!

    In fact, everything is fine . I would just have a bit less of those coastal lines (but it's just to my taste).
