    Wip [WIP] Antique Style World Map

    Okay first of all, I found this map quite a while ago and was absolutely blown away by all the extra information that's contained on it, beyond just a simple world map.

    So I've blatantly borrowed the layout of that map, and I'm using it to create a map of my own world, which will eventually be similarly filled with charts of my own moon, solar system, descriptions of the tides, etc, etc.

    Updates will be slow going, as I'm pretty much only working on this map while I'm at work but I have every intention of seeing this thing through to the bitter end. Currently, the latitude and longitude lines are only guidelines and will eventually be redrawn more appropriately to the style of the map.

    I'm working in photoshop, and I've also used Hugin to convert my original map into a stereographic projection.

    Edit:
    I've decided to also add a thumbnail of the current state of completion, so any newcomer to this thread doesn't have to wander through 10+ pages to find the most complete WIP
