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:

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

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 ?

J'ai pensé la faire en auto-édition, mais finalement, je vais quand même tenter les éditeurs avant. Je finalise le dossier actuellement. Et si ça marche pas, là, je me rabattrais sur de l'auto-édition ^^

this is a mix of technics. I used a real maritim card I found on the web as model, for the texture of the ink, de forms of mountains or coasts. I play with the texture of old paper, draw and color some decorations, etc.
If you want to make one, search some old maritim cards of XVII or XVIII century ^^

Well, I really don't have time to make a tutorial... but I think you can do a good map with a little of photomanipulation with maps on the web. I found myself ones which where really good.
I used this one: [link] ( you juste have to choise a subcategory on "countries" )

Awh this is beautiful, your work makes me want to start a comic of my own,

Heh did you reference Scandinavia for Varenka?
i dunno about anyone else but the first think i thought of was Norway Sweden and Finland!
Very well manipulated if thats so, X3

I love how realistic to a real old map it is <3

The shapes of the continents are from a old and simple sketch of a friend of mine. I don't know her inspiration ^^

And this is the 3rd map I did of them... I found each time a better way to represent them.

Bah c'est la troisième version de la carte. La première était une simple manipulatation d'une carte de jeu vidéo ^^; , la deuxième était déjà plus aboutie, inspirée d'une carte que j'avais vue. Et pour celle-ci, j'avais déjà de bonnes bases pour placé chaque détail. Il me restait qu'à trouvé un rendu réaliste, et je l'ai trouvé sur le net avec de vieilles cartes maritimes du 17° siècle. J'ai rajouté un effet texture papier ancien, et voilà.
