    Map The Land of Eroer

    Here is a map I created for a fantasy short film. The film is currently in post production. The map was created in Photoshop.

    Really nice work! I especially like the paper/parchment texture you have on it, looks very genuine.

    A good map but the biggest problem is the river of golden tears. It's not a river, it look more like a strait or a canal. You should split it somewhere.

    I like the old feel of it. Good Job!

    Thanks for the comment. It actually had been deliberately made this way as per the client. I have actually been thinking of making a variant of the map for myself that would split the river, as this is an unusual feature.

    I have questioned a publisher's depiction of what is needed (river wise and other geographic attributes) for a given map commission. In one case, a publisher deferred to my judgement on how best to depict it properly. In another case the publisher defended his geologic incompatibility with specfic requirements for a unique setting, so in that case, I shouldn't change the geography. I never blindly create a map for commission without requesting additional information concerning geological/geographical inconsistencies I might find in a publisher's rough draft for reference. I always ask first.

    I think Gonzotron pointed out that the client deliberately made it that way.

    It's a very nice map Gonzotron. I like the color and the feel of it.

    Yes, I understand, I can read what Gonzotron posted as well. I was clarifying that I specifcally ask a client their intentions, and explain why I consider the geologic/geographic anamoly a problem. A publisher needs to give me the "why" of an issue, and not just make me do what I'm being paid for doing.

    Oh I didn't get that you understood. Just that you were correcting him without having seen that he's already said exactly what you told him.

    Very cool! Did you letter it by hand? Beautiful labels.

    Edit:

    So I am stupid

    What font is that? It is stunning
