    Post The Thelonian Empire

    This has been an epic project that I started working on over four months ago, and it feels pretty good to have finally crossed the finish line. When I started out I had very limited experience with Photoshop and Illustrator, but really picked up both programs as I worked on the project.

    I was inspired by the work of HandsomeRob and used his great tutorial to start out my map, and then went off in my own direction a bit. The setting is one I may use for a novel at some point (if I ever get around to writing it). I wanted the map to have a very atlas-like vibe so that it would give the setting a historical feel, like the map belonged in a modern day text book or something.

    Many thanks to all those who gave suggestions and comments while the map was a WIP.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    I honestly don't have much to say that's more original than saying that it's gorgeous. It really looks like something you'd find in an atlas.
