Thendrais map by SirInkman Thendrais map by SirInkman
from pencil sketch to PS for some texture and color, plus some text

This map was another test of some concepts, mainly a more aged look but also for some ink and water color effects plus some burn holes and such.
This was the second attempt and feels fairly well aged. The notes on the page are from Naelis' scribe, written for the captains that used the map.
Thendrais was largely unknown to them at the time of these voyages.

Other bits.... [first is the original pencil sketch]

Beautiful and intriguing map. I love all the bits of story/notes around... gives it a good depth you can really sink into with the imagination, and the style is really pleasing to explore with the eyes. :) Nice map, John.

I really like this concept! Feels like the kind of thing that some ancient pirates would have used.
