    Map Campaign Map

    And here it goes! I had a lot of fun working on this map.

    It's definitely in my top 3 favourites so far, and i seem to be settling into my own style more and more. I did make use of the automatic forest generator for this map, I still say that's one of the best tools that's hit the forum (Thanks to Fluesopp and Ramah) and I also borrowed the outlined town/city/castle designs from Ramah. The compass/scale/border/heraldry designs were taken and/or modified from royalty free vector collections, everything else was custom drawn for this map. And for those who are interested in such things, I used the font "Viner Hand" at a variety of sizes and settings. The other inspirations I had besides my own imagination are too numerous, so I will end off by saying thank you to the guild as a whole.

    The version I'm loading to this thread is a 50% scaled down copy, the original is 6600x4800. The original in all it's glory can be viewed two places -
    My DeviantArt gallery, and the Zoomified version on my own hosted space
    (the second might be an easier version for some, you don't need to wait for the whole thing to download before it's viewable).
    Also included in this post is a cropped selection of the fullsize view for those who might not want to leave the site, this way you can see how things should look at fullsize


    Thanks to everyone who provided feedback in the WIP thread!!

    Yes, yes, this is very, very good indeed. A little dark for my taste, but hey, still pretty darn good. Did I mention its good? Because it is... good, that is.

    You already know my feelings for this map based on my DA comments.
