The City of Fennica Map

I'm quite proud of these, this one especially. It's huge, but it's incredibly detailed and I plan to add to it as I write. Basically, I'll add places as I need them in the story, but I definitely wanted somewhere to run my characters through on their way to places of note. Previously I've found that I don't have an appreciation for how long it would take someone to get somewhere; I'm hoping these can help me judge that. It'd take someone about an hour to walk from one side of the city to the other, east-west, and about two hours north-south due to the windiness of the roads. That's about right for a city of this size.

Hope you like it!

amazing city, can you do another one perhaps a capital for your story the grand city of Omegapolis in such a huge res pleasee??

This is the capital of the country; there'll be other countries with their own capitals. I'm not sure what you're asking for, really; I'm already writing the story that features this city, starting here: [link]

Thanks for your comments, and thanks for looking!

i meant making another one for my story

I'm sorry, I think I misunderstood your original comment; I think you meant, could I do another one for your story? I'm afraid that the only way I could do that is if you commissioned me to do one on a freelance basis. I work full-time as a teacher and that doesn't leave me with a lot of time for making maps!

I'm sure you understand. I can definitely suggest finding a free program online that allows you to make maps similar to this, or using Photoshop brushes to make your mountains, trees etc. if that's the route you'd like to go. Best of luck!

Thank you very much; I spent quite a while on this, though I've sadly lost interest in the story atm. Maybe later. Thanks though!

That map looks like it took forever xD I've also taken a look at your other maps and I must say you've got talent for this! I just draw my maps by hand (and terribly), but I've given up on city maps.

On a side note, I recognized the background you used for the other maps. I guess I couldn't call myself a FFXI fan if I didn't^^ I had to open up those maps often enough back in the days xD

On another side note, I really need to catch up on your pieces :(

Oh I'm so glad someone noticed the FFXI map background :D Yes, it's basically that, I suppose I should say that I've used the border from one of those maps but to be honest I didn't think anyone would spot it :D I had them all downloaded and in a folder ready for quick viewing so it was easy to pick one.

Thanks so much for your wonderful comments :)
