Here are two Images of the map concept. (I'm working with whatever scraps I can get my hands on for the design) The map is stylized so the the 1/4 mdf wood veneer can support it without being too fragile. So accuracy is out but I'm looking for visual appeal as the purpose of the map. One of these images is just the stained veneer without finish the other is brush leaf over the continents and elements also without finish. I was wondering which version appealed more to you. I'll also be posting a third version before to long with gold leafed longitude and latitude lines to view the effects of that. Once again I'm looking for visual appeal so any comments or tips on the design and style would be welcome as well. Click image for larger version.
