A private map commission for Utunu, which is subject to change once locations are added in! For now, here’s the landscape/topography of the map itself
Painted in Photoshop! By hand! Yes, my wrist is tired.
Fantastic! Oh, so many amazing things that points to great skill. I love it. The ocean is wonderful to say the least. In fact, I would actually like to know what kind of process you had in painting the ocean?
I simply paint it, really Start with gradients to make sure where my light is coming from, work in the larger forms to get in the motion of the water, plan where to put in smaller details like waves and ripples and get to work rendering it all out!
But! I gotta hand it to you, this map looks gorgeous, and the rest of it seems pretty logical to me. And painting it by hand - holy crow, dude. Gotta respect you for that. Cheers, and best wishes for you and your hardworking wrist. ^_^
I've made some custom maps in my time but this puts every single one I've done to shame. Almost tempted to use it for a Dungeons and Dragons campaign.
Are you objective to doing more of these? If this were a print I would buy it in a heartbeat.
How does one do commissions through you?
