    Wip WIP - Tharduur

    Ok inspired by rob75067 and his maps I will start a WIP myself. I haven't done a map in a while because I moved into a new house and had a lot of work to do. I have decided to take some time off from working on the house and do this map. Priorities right?

    Anywho, I lucked out and got a FT coastline rather quickly so I can get down to work. Besides the coastline, I have decided not to use CC3 and make this map strictly in Elements.

    I like this look so far. I was playing with brush strokes to kinda tone down the detail from the FT png. I discovered that Accented Edges gives you an outline to your coastline and takes a lot of detail away to give that hand drawn feeling.

    I was playing with the coastal lines that are found in many parchment maps and discovered through trial and error that a thick outline around the coast, then the brush stroke spatter with a motion blur gives a great effect and is rather simple to do. It might not be perfect but not bad for a huge map.

    Next step: mountains, I finally get to break out my new stylus!

    Added mountains, rivers and a coastline. I think as far as symbols go, I'm done. I used my stylus for the first time and it was certainly harder than I thought but I soon got the hang of it.

    Uh-oh pressure's on! I hope I don't disapoint, never done a play by play before.

    I'm a fan as well and this one also looks good. Nice job so far.

    Added labels and a tapestry texture and color. I am having trouble with the lower right quad. I think this can be finished but the empty space there is bugging me. Any ideas?

    Also, I'm 50/50 on putting a scale on the map. However there is very little sea between the west islands and the east islands. So this is the entire world as these islands are huge and they cross the entire planet. So I think a scale might be a little silly. Wahtya think?
