    Post First Pass at a Political Map in CC3

    Here is a political map in handrawn style. I am still not happy with the text and am looking for the handrawn compase rose and legend I could have sworn I had .

    Any suggestions on text placement would be welcome. Should I curve the text?



    Thanks
    Dean

    Hello Deanatglobe,

    That's a nice map. Very clean and crisp. I wouldn't go with curved text but i would center the names on their polygons.

    Nice work

    If you can find a rough texture and apply it to the political border polys it might give it a more colored pencil look which would be less jarring to the overall handdrawn style of the map.

    Okay, I did some tweaking of colors, I threw a texture on the border sheet. but am not seeing too big of difference.

    I changed a few of the names to make thier style match better.




    Here is the map without the effects on, someone was asking about the edge fade effect.

    I can't see either of the pics. Must be that Firefox problem again.

    Ok, I switched to IE and was able to view them. I like the look better. It gives an almost water painted look to the polys.

    Hey,

    well, I like that map a lot. It is pretty clean and straight forward and tells just the facts it needs to tell.
    I love the second version most since the colors are not so "bright" in that.
    Very well done

    I see the original map with the colored edges, but the two most recent maps display as broken image links.
