Because I was just talking to amirosebooks about it, this is a map I made in college for a fantasy world. I taped like six or so pieces of graph paper together and started drawing. Then I color coded where I thought the country border lines would be. Then I decided that having it only on paper wasn’t enough. So I scanned it into my computer and traced the entire thing in Photoshop. The color coded version you see at the bottom is like eight layers of different things so I can turn them on and off and get a different view of the whole landscape.
I honestly don’t even know how many hours of my life I poured in to this thing. The book I originally drew the map for? I never finished it. I did go back to this world last year, though, adding another group of people and a war that I might one day be able to tie in to that other concept I had once upon a time.
Even if I never publish anything in this world, though? I fucking LOVE this map.
