Here's my latest finished commission. It's a world where a viking-inspired people conquered everything and now have a globe-spanning empire called Stormark. The client requested the style I used in my Antillia map, so I tried to adapt it for full world mapping, and give it a slightly different feel with the fraktur-ish fonts. Blackmoor Let, Germania and Rapscallion, to be exact. The rest is made with watercolors and some acrylics, with cities, roads, borders and some tweaks added with Photoshop. I also used the font Rune in the border. The shapes of the landmasses where given to me by the client.

Nice map :) I like the style but I just don't get some of the names. I know it's a commission but I have to say that, being a fantasy theme how can there be names like Normandie, Sicilia, Rosenborg, Gascogne, Tromso.. They're all real names of places that exist. I can also see some names that exist in games and other fantasy themed stuff.

Anyway it's not your fault I guess. Just had to vent :P 

Take care!

Yeah, the names are the client's. If I'm asked to put names on a map that I know are copyrighted by someone else, I don't do it, but I didn't recognize any fictional names here, and the real names aren't copyrighted so that's not something I interfere with. Thanks for your comment :)

Those are just the mysterious ways of our political and cultural simulation. =P (Razz)
