I really like the way you made this map, the overall texture and the latitude longitude lines give this map a real old feeling.  Your use of colors is also an interesting blend that gives this map a unique classic feel.  Great work.  Out of shear curiosity is this map larger than what you uploaded?

Yes, this map is really really bigger on its original format. I did it as a real map, something like 1m50 x 2 m, I don't remember the exact size.

Can I use this?

Or rather, can I use a tiny portion of this image?

I'm a cheap ol' fanfiction writer and I really like this image. I was wondering if I could cut a portion out to use it as a backdrop to another piece of artwork. With your permission, of course.

You can find nice old maps on the web. As I did to find references for this artwork. Use google images. Because this deviation is a map of my professional work universe and I don't give permission to use it.

I think I might get lost in this if I stared at it for too long. It's so beautiful and incredibly detailed, and it really has that fantasy feel to it! I was wondering though, the navigation lines - or are they called rhumb lines? - in the map, how did you make them? I'm not really asking for specifics, but is there a specific formula of calculation or did you just do it by eye? Thanks!

Oh, and I do apologize for the silly question :happybounce:

I find this lines web on a real map of the 18°century. There must have a specific calculation on it but I don't know which one ^^;

Ah I see! Thanks for telling me! I've been looking at maps for a few days now, trying to draw one of my own... Haven't dared to try it yet... Thanks for your help! And it sounds like you have a wonderful story with a wonderful map! Too bad I can't read French =D

Superbe carte !
J'ai beau cherché, je ne trouve pas de "résumé" de l'histoire. Je dois être mauvaise !
En tout cas, c'est vraiment magnifique ! Tout ton boulot :D

Non, il n'y a plus de résumé. Celui qu'il y avait racontait trop de l'histoire, je l'ai enlevé. C'est vrai que je devrais en faire un autre ^^;
Et merci :aww:

Do you think we could get a work-process on how you made this? I'm very interested in about exactly HOW this was made. Thanks!

It will be difficult to do. I didn't keep any step of its made. But I can say I used as reference real sea chart of the XVIII° century I found on the web, to do the plot and the outline of the continents.
The background is a old paper scanned, with some brush strokes done with photoshop.

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

Sorry, I already have too much work with my own projects to engage me on others.
Good luck for your search.

Hello, elle a l'air super bien ta BD ! Très beau graphisme en tout cas. J'aimerais bien l'avoir sur papier...
Sortira t'elle chez un grand éditeur ou en autoédition ? Et si oui quand ?
