    Map Vegla

    Friend of mine wanted a "quickie" so this is what he got. I tried to make it in a even earlier style (15th century instead of 18th). I believe I got the mountains wrong and probably some other stuff but he liked it. It gave me the opportunity to play with colors; I don't put too much color in my maps.

    I think I might give 15th century style another go after I look at some of the maps from that era.

    Kinda reminds me a bit of the maps the Belgariad & Mallorean series - only better.

    When I first saw the title I thought it was about textured glass cuz Vegla is one of the companies...anyway, Pretty good quickie map.

    I really like the style. But this really is a quickie innit? A few typoes and graticule lines going over the borders.

    Are the coastlines designed or generated?

    Yea I fixed "forgotton" before I gave it to him. On alot of the maps in that era the grid most times goes over the border and labeled in the border. So I guess it could be handled either way.

    I always generate coastlines using FT. Although on my next map I might not...depending.

    FT time was about 15 minutes. I usually take alot more time than this with FT. I believe it to be one of the most important parts of the map.

    About an hour in PSE.

    robb --> if ya find out let me know.

    If you're talking about the dark woodcut lines then you could do that with the Wind filter. Make a white layer then make a selection of the land, increase the size of the selection to suit, new layer, fill with black, deselect, merge down, Filter - Distort - Wind (use from left and from right a couple of times), then mask off the area to be visible (or simply delete the lighter tones with Select - Color Range). You could also add a bit of a wave to the lines with the Ripple filter...Filter - Distort - Ripple.
