What a fascinating map! Especially a very interesting style to do water - Kind of makes it look quite dangerous... a Bit like fire. Also I love how unique you made the cities and the signs around the map, which do make it look like a real old map. Very inspiring! I love it!

i love it but i have to admit the swirl water is a neat effect but makes it hard to follow the coastlines

:iconallisonstanley:
AllisonStanley Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I'll take that into consideration. I have been musing over the look of the coastlines. I think they look better when printed very large, but become difficult to see when small. Thank you

A beautiful piece of traditional artwork, but still lots of room of improvement on the cartographical side. A sincere congratulation on the DD nevertheless.

I can see where people are coming from when they say that the water possibly distracts too much from the land. That said, the effect is so unusual and lovely that I don't really think it's a problem -- if anything it gives the map it's own unique feeling! This picture is wonderful, and I love it :+fav:
