Here is one of my latest personal work, the map of Vardenia and Urenia and the map of the city of Septentia. On this one, I wanted to map fictional regions trying to recreate (as best as I can) something close to late 16th century old maps style, with its flaws, its inconsistencies and typographical approximations and specifical geographic elements. I also wanted to add a map of small city in a bird's eye style, widely used in the style of that time (although usually separated from regional or continental maps). I used an odd combination of (approximate) latin and some "fake" language close to italian and a bit of spanish to label it.

So good.  This is amazing.  Everything I would want in a map myself.

Beautiful looking map. Did you make the city/town icons yourself?

Wow, vraiment pas mal du tout!
Tu fais ça à la main, où sous Photoshop? En tout cas, c'est vraiment bien réalisé :)

Merci. Les deux ne sont pas incompatibles : L'ensemble est dessiné à la main avec une tablette graphique dans Photoshop ;)
