    Map TORENTINE: Political Map

    Well I finally finished this one! The WIP thread for this is at Torentine Empire: my li'l corner of a fictional world but basically, the entire map is built in Adobe Illustrator (CS3) and then pasted into Photoshop in groupings of layers where i apply various filters and layer some subtle effects in to make it look more polished. I especially like the easy mask-ability of Photoshop. I made good use of graphic styles in illustrator to get train tracks etc and i use some free fonts for some of the little icons. All of the coats of arms are built in illustrator as well. The globe is taken from the original fractal file of the planet and then shaded.

    This is the first in a project of about 4 (maybe more) atlas style maps which will focus on this fictional place. The next will either be a land use, resource, topography and relief map (all wrapped into one if i can manage it) or a large city map of the imperial capital surrounded by some smaller city insets.

    Something is up with the site tonight and i can't seem to view the map i uploaded (had troubles). You can see it at the following link until i can get it uploaded properly:
