Lohrefen by SirInkman Lohrefen by SirInkman
done in PS, from an initial pencil sketch
A few months back I started into a series of maps that I came to call Little Worlds, as the planets would be somewhat small.
I liked the idea of a more compact planet, as so many often head toward earth-sized worlds or even massive epic scale worlds.

The first one I started was Grey World, which was based on a map by my friend :iconchashio: Chashio.
That thread is over at the Cartographers Guild - www.cartographersguild.com/sho…

The world of LohreFen began as a quick oblique sketch done initially for a bookmark project over on the Guild.
It then sat languishing for a while on my harddrive before reviving as this Little World.

The map shows current regions and active cities along with many ancient or lost cities of the earlier pre-Ahranic civilization of the A'Na'Har people, of which little is known.
It is known that they were advanced and that their civilization stretched from Anor in the North down beyond the Medesh in the South.
It is not known what became of the great A'Na'Hari Empire. There are legends and mythic tales.
One legend tells of a great people who left the world in spheres of light.
The nomads of the Pelgranod claim to be descendants of the people who once served the great A'Na'Hri of the western regions.
They tell tales of the Light Walkers who strode LohreFen with the late A'Na'Hri and eventually took them beyond.

Thanks :D
The title font is Scurlock and the location labels are Baldur, I believe.
Both can be found on MyFonts -

Man, this is a really unique take on a world map; I don't think I've ever seen anyone include the actual curve of the globe before. It's a refreshing perspective!

I'm a little tired, and I thought this was Great Britain at first...

It's long, but not very wide, there's Wales-like thing on the left (to the left of Ahras) And gigantic Scotland in the top.
