I really like the gold-black combination. Painted with gold colour on a black stone table, I think it would look awesome^^ Great work!

Thank you kindly! Someone also mentioned once it might look good as a metallic print for steampunk, but those can be expensive hehe

Thank you Shelly :) I love vintage & ancient artwork, even with maps it seems they poured a lot more soul into it
frivolous-magpie's avatar
You're very welcome! :heart: And I love how ancient maps look, whenever I see an old looking map in movies I always want it. :giggle: It takes a lot of talent to make a good looking map, whether it be real or fake. :) I love the colors used for this~ It reminds me of something I'd see in a movie! :D

Thanks again, half of the magic for me is breathing new life into old art :) I hope in turn it invites others to revisit the past with fresh enthusiasm instead of rolling their eyes at a school field trip to the local art museum

Been to a museum twice in my life and it was awesome both times~ And they weren't that big either. :heart:

Hehe I was one of those kids who would roll my eyes going on school field trips to art museums. Didn't give much serious thought about it until I was about 25, but something clicked once I stARTed :) Then a couple years ago I went with my mother and a friend to an art museum in DC and they had difficulty peeling me away from there!

:giggle: It's funny how people can completely change like that about stuff. :)
boldfrontiers's avatar
No kidding :) I spent 4 years to get a university degree in economics but realized it wasn't motivating me... so I felt I needed to make a drastic change and even though I still have a lot of work ahead of me, I'm glad I'm chasing after more creatives ambitions =D

Really nice combination! Also I like how the old maps have all these illustrations around it.
boldfrontiers's avatar
Thanks! I'm glad you noticed that too :) Nowadays such illustrations might be brushed aside for scientific inaccuracies, but I think the artwork adds a lot more charm
