Enedor Map by RobbieMcSweeney Enedor Map by RobbieMcSweeney
An 18th Century inspired map of my fantasy world. Took me a good few days on and off. I've definitely got some good design ideas for this world, so watch out for new stuff!

Nice. I loved making fantasy maps as a kid. Fun stuff.

May I ask how you made that grid? Especially with that bulging effect that makes it seem more globe-like. I've been working on my own fantasy world map for a long time, and although it's near completion, I'm always looking to improve it!

I've been checking out your work and it's cool to see someone else working on a fantasy world in a more modernised period! ^^ That "Battle of The Valdurian Pass" looks absolutley fantastic, extremely dynamic; reminds me of various paintings of 18th-19th century battles. Would make a badass wallpaper!

Your concepts and designs for various national military uniforms make me extremely envious, as I have little talent for drawing and painting, so I'm forced to trace out real-world uniforms then add my own twists to them, instead of making things from scratch.

With the grid I think I just used the warp tool. If not, it would have been the spherize filter. Thanks! yeah I hadn't seen many fantasy worlds that go based on something past 16th century. Thought I'd give it a shot :) 

Don't worry about the skills, they just take practice. Having a visual mind and the ability to come up with new designs is far more important. The drawing skills will just come through on practice.... and some more practice :)

Thaank you! 

Totally, I'm surprised it's such an untouched setting. The only fantasy novel based in that period I've read is the Temeraire series. Alternate-history Napoleonic Wars with a touch of fantasy, that is to say - dragons.

That's, encouraging, thanks. xD

Really nice map, looks very 18th century-ish...
the only thing I have against it is that it's very hard to identify the water from the rest of the map. :# (even though the countries and nations are outlined in different colors.T_T )

Yeah, I shall most likely redo this map. You're right it is unclear a bit where water and land is. I'll probably redo it in illustrator so I can have a much clearer map.

:shout: Speaking of maps n' stuff, will we ever be seeing close-ups of the map, for individual nations and such? Really into fantasy, map making, cartography and stuff of that sort. :#

Nice. How do you do the boundaries? The inner band of colour, is it handmade?

Very nice! Looking forward to seeing the Elavorian cavalry. Love the older cartography style.

I really dig the continent-shape. Any chance you'll do a map of this with the geological features (moutains, forests etc etc )?
Oh and if you're willing, tell us more about the world itself!

I most likely will do one that has geographic features and less emphasis on the nations. You'll definitely get to know the world better as I upload more designs. I'm currently working on Elavorian cavalry, so you'll see that in the next few days. They'll be more information too about where they're from and what they do etc. :)
