Looks good so far.
So this is my first attempts at an ancient style parchment map. I thought I would show it off a bit now before I do more work on it.
Looks good so far.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

It's a great start...looking forward to seeing where you take it.

I'm a huge fan of that style. Looks good thus far, I'll be interested to see what happens with it.
I like it so far. I find myself fighting to make landmasses that look right and I think you did a good job here.
There was no reral "trick" to these land masses, I just selected an area with the lasso tool and filled it and then went over the edge with the eraser to make it look more natural. It didn't take too long but it was tedious.
I absolutely agree with everyone. a very good start. will be watching to see its development

A quick update. I have added some terrain icons and some city markers. Of course these are from some of the many brush packs that I have found kicking around this site and thanks to the authors (I hope I remembered to rep you all). I am pretty happy with how this is going. I am a bit concerned the style of the city markers differs too much from the terrain icons so I may play with other options.
To me, those city icons blend too much with the mountain icons, and they're too hard to pick out against the coastline. I'd make them a lighter shade of the color you have them in, or do some kind of outer glow or something to make them pop out a bit.
I actually like that the icons blend, but I may try a few things out. Once the labels are added it will become more obvious where the city icons are located.
