    Default Westeros

    A commission I just finished for a friend of mine. The paper texture might be a bit busy but that's what she wanted. I've attached the flat image below the final.

    Lovely work vorropohaiah! I don't think the paper texture is too busy at all. I do think the forests are a bit sparse, but that aside I'd say it's an excellent map.

    Cheers,

    Really nice! I actually think the labels are a little difficult to read though, because they are so small. But esthetically, it's awesome. The texture is great, in my opinion.

    That makes them easier to read of course, but I still think they are too small compared to the detail level of the map… I mean, everything else looks perfect at this size, but would become oversized if zoomed in enough to make the text a comfortable size. It's a beautiful map, I just think there's a size mismatch between the labels and the other elements.

    OK, plus one to the few excellent maps of Westeros! Very fine map vorropohaiah. I actually like the aging provided by the paper : the only default about it is that it tears apart the four emblems.

    A lot of Westeros maps out there

    While the map shows how talented you are in map-making, Vorro, i do think that the forests and mountain ranges are a bit sparse. For my taste, you could have unlocked even more flavour out of this bad boy.

    I hope we'll soon see progress on your big project?! Elyden is still one of the most fascinating projects here on the Guild, imo.

    thanks, and very true about the emblems - one of the reasons i added the original image! i know a lot of people arent fans of bevel/emboss effects though i like them myself (so sue me!)

    true. honestly, i'm not that well-versed in the world (the books I read once each as they came out, though im pretty hooked on the show, though i can barely name all the houses) and didnt have much time to research the mountains and, as i didnt know whats meant to be dense mountains and hills, i just had a quick lok at some other maps i found online and went from there

    I hope we'll soon see progress on your big project?! Elyden is still one of the most fascinating projects here on the Guild, imo.
    Thanks! me too :p The atlas, as a project is on hold for a while though the larger world map is more likely to have something done to it soon(ish).
