Map of Nevermore by SozokuReed Map of Nevermore by SozokuReed
For those of you who are interested in the world of Nevermore (and not just my character illustrations) I will be working on flushing out more of the history and workings of the Heavensystem world... so the characters seem less like a few drawings and comic pages and more real life.

Thats the plan anyways =o and for those keeping track, our story starts off on the continent of Errion right about at that Elven forest of Nerventhuill.

Oh yes, the parchment look to the map was used with :iconandantonius: handy tutorial.

Gimp failed me in this regard and a minecraft worldpainter failed me as well.

I need someone to make the map for me. Someone who's skilled with the programs.

Well have you tried drawing it by hand? That's what I did, this was inked and then scanned into photo shop and I just used tree brushes and a paper pattern for the bg

You just really inspired me! I'm DMing a D&D campaign and couldn't come up with a map that didn't actually look like earth proper. This gave me tons of inspiration! Thanks! 

Also, THIS IS INCREDIBLE!

It was hand drawn and inked, however the texture of the background was created through photoshop, I just searched for worn paper textures =)

Hey There I really like your artwork 10/10! I would just like to mention quickly that I have a gaming team set up of 9. We need more 3d and 2d artists for both conceptual and final artworks. We are a serious team looking for all gaming roles including GUI artists and others. The game is based over 4000 years ago and contains Vikings, Barbarians, Shaolin Monks and the Atlantians. Post a reply or send a note to me or email me on vxtream@gmail.com.

Thanks to all members who read this and please consider it as we do have many professionals involved.
Regards to you and all the Deviantart community,
The VisionXtream Team

Hey man, do you have a tutorial for this map, or one like this map? I can't seem to find any good map tutorials for this kind of map. It's simple compared to most maps, but still very beautiful. Thanks if you can help. And really, a good job on this.

Well I dont really have a step by step, but the map part itself was all hand draw, inked then scanned, the mountains and trees were a custom brush I made in a few seconds and just splattered over the picture. The faded paper look was a tutorial I used from the guy I linked in my description. Hope that helps =D

Hey dude... I hope you know that there is a VERY popular flash game called Nevermore which takes place on an Island called Nevermore (Really neat game). It doesn't look like is ofcourse but you should probably pick a different name. I am currently writing a written version of the game for the creator himself.

This give's me a diablo-feeling somehow. ^^
The map looks similar for me. ^_O

Slowly but surely i wonder what "heavensystem" could mean. ^^
Where did the idea for this name came from? ;3

Really? I would have thought LotR or D&D haha, but I guess that works too. Actually the name Heavensystem is the sword Reed uses... not sure how I came up with that one though

Reed sends people into heaven with it, huh? xD

Hmmm, fantasy-maps always look a bit similar. ;>
Its naturaly i guess.

Heavensystem is a cool name for a sword. B-)

I was planning a group hopefully Friday morning to get it out of the way and let everyone do their own plans for the rest of the weekend. I think I have 10 people so far but that number always shrinks to like 4 by con time lol

Oh yeah of course its still on, I am hoping to have 10 people but realistically it might be like 4 or 5....... not sure about Melissa, she removed me from her friends list so she might not wear Laurel again. Yeah that would be great if she could get in touch with us, or you at least. Anyways Fanime should be fun times, I cant wait to get some more epic ass shots =D
