    Post Forgotten Land

    With this map I introduced GeoControl 2 into my toolbox and though it would make mapping so much easier. I thought that when I get the height map exported to Photoshop it would make mapping so simple and fast. How wrong was I!!
    Ok, GC2 has a mind of its own and definitely something against me and it didn’t do what I wanted it to do. It sure was difficult to create a natural looking mountains, but finally I got it and started creating suitable textures etc. I love details (maybe a bit too much sometimes) and I filled the map with all sorts of smaller and bigger pieces of interest. I wanted this map to be inspiring to viewer’s imagination by not explaining all things out.
    I’m posting here two versions of the same map. The first one is the original and the second one has special lighting effects put on it (like the light coming from the observer tower etc.).

    In the north there is the known world and in the south beyond the mountains lie the forgotten land. Something evil lives there and the old gate is guarded by the silent towers. But things are not that black and white and the secrets are known by certain instances with great plans…
