    I had to give you some rep on this one. I must say that I have searched and searched for a style that I would like when it came to making maps with PS. I think I may have just found it. Now, to figure out how to ink with Photoshop.

    Very nice map. I like the one where the colors are a bit muted. (The second where the inking is set to overlay.)

    Now, off to find the tutorials and dust off my coaster (er.... old Wacom tablet.) (Got any tuts to suggest?)

    Very Nice map.

    I like the most muted version of the colours. The more I see maps the more muted my colour taste has become. I am starting to think that a basic principle for mapping might well be "subtler is gooder".

    suggestions?? ... shade in color with brushes and save the inking for outlining... it will cut down on your time and headaches...

    Del - Thanks for the tip on shading. This was the first map I hand inked intending to colour afterward, and kept wanting to cross-hatch for shading.

    Here is (What I consider) to be final (other than a border and some labeling)..

    I went with the screen blend to lighten the colouring up. I played around with the GIMPressionist presets (painterly filters) and settled on the current one (I liked the look). The ink layer I adjusted to solid black, to stop all colour bleed through the "ink".

    Thanks for the comments from everyone. I am happy now with the adjusted colours. More in line with the watercolour look I had mentally envisioned, and less bleah now

    Very nice finished product!

    The addition of small details, like the red dots in the berry bushes makes this map stand out on the awesome scale even more!
    Also on the topic of the bushes, reminds me of the ones from AOE...

    Rep'd for its awesomeness!
    The pen is truly mightier then the sword, for with one quick stroke, a pen can kill your drawing; but the sword takes a couple hits before you drop it into negitive HP.

    Rob, how did get the background so white after the tracing? My scanner picks up all the stray pencillings from the orignal and the tracing paper is an off-white that when I attempt to clean it I lose some of my lines.
