The Dark Empire by Chanimur The Dark Empire by Chanimur
I put this together over the last couple of days, mainly to play with different textures, etc. I tried to do a subtle texture application to the mountains; it turned out okay, although I still want to perfect it further. The distressed paper was made by [link] . Fonts used were Roman Antique and Monotype Corvisa.
Mountains are from a font called Hill Country by Jon Ross, found on www.dafont.com.

This is the western part of a tropical continent; this part is overshadowed by the Vasarian Empire - the so-called 'Dark Empire', due to their necromancer priest-queens. It's kind of an Egyptian/Arabic mash-up. The nations to the north and east of it are more traditionally Arabic, while the jungle nations in the northwest are an Aztec/African fusion. Far to the east are plains/Mongol barbarians.

It looks fantastic - and memorable. Do you do commissions?

Not currently; I just don't have the time.  :D

You might try the Map-making Requests section of the forums at www.cartographersguild.com.

 There's a couple of other people I've asked directly, but if they fall through or take too long deciding I might do just that. Thanks

Wow! Love this one. Have you put up some kind of tutorial? I'm aspiring some map-making myself.

I didn't really keep track of the steps I took. Unfortunately.

You might try stopping by www.cartographersguild.com if you're getting into map-making; they've got loads of great tutorials there.

Very amazing!

Are the trees fill layer or are they individually brushed? The layout of it all is incredible :)
