Thread: My new world map

  1. #1

    Post My new world map

    I need to start another map like I need hole in my head, but after seeing Tear's recent work I was feeling inspired.

    I started playing around with this and I sort of like where it is going, so I think I'll keep working on it. I was amazed at the speed in which this was done. This little bit took about 20 minutes, I think. I'm not sure about the mountain placement though, so any input there would be great.

    Looks good so far.

    I like the shape very much, but in my opinion the rivers are too long. We have a proverb in germany that says "Wasser sucht sich den kürzesten Weg." roughly translated "water seeks the shortest way itself".

    Good grungy-lookin touches, nice colors, good shapes = good job, bro.

    I really like the textures! Mind sharing how you did the mountains and forests?

    I used Soixante's mountain brushes that can be found here. After I got the peaks where I wanted them I made a separate layer underneath that and used a piece Pasis’s tutorial from here. I only used the base mountain layer section.

    The forest was just one of the default speckle type brushes in photoshop (I'm sure there's a proper name for them, but it's not coming to me at the moment). I widened the spread, and cranked up the size and angle jitters, then played with the bevel and opacity until I got something I liked. I can get you the exact setting if you'd like.

    Hope that helps!

    This looks very sharp. Can't wait to see the next iteration!

    Thanks for the comments.

    Not much to this update, really. I'm taking the labeling slow while I think of area names that I really like, rather than just throwing something down to fill up space. I figure since this one's not in a competition, I've got the time.

    C&C appreciated...
