Sapience - Commission by Ramah-Palmer Sapience - Commission by Ramah-Palmer
Sapience

This was a commission I completed recently for an upcoming LARP company called Legacy. Find their website at: [link]

It was drawn in Photoshop CS using a Wacom Bamboo tablet.

As always, big thanks to Coyotemax for his paper textures.

I am in love with the way you do your forests on your maps. Did you make a brush for it or do you paint it out every time? I would be very interested in a tutorial on your process. Your maps are absolutely stunning.

Hey there. Thanks for the compliments.

For my forests I usually use a program I've developed called TreeThing. It uses a bunch of tree brushes you create and then places them randomly according to a template you load in. This gives me the basic layers and I then do a bunch of post editing in Photoshop to get them looking better.
If you're interested in using the program then go to the Cartographer's Guild forum and do a search for it there, although if you use it I'd request you post a link to it in any work you use it for and maybe drop me a link on here so I can check it out. :)

Sorry I never replied to this. Here is a link to the forum: [link]

It is compatible with any image program capable of working with .png files. So yes.

I really like the clarity. in many cases I think colour spoils a map but yours are very, very nice.

Very beautiful map. I'm NOT into cuteness, but the mountains look like chocolate kisses (the candies). I like the detail and the overall look of the terrain. The crater is a very nice touch. However, I'd like to also see mileage so I can measure distance and size.

The client wasn't interested in a scale bar or even a border (but I managed to sneak a basic one of those in).

Chocolate kiss mountains. Hehe, I love that. :D

Thank you kindly.

I'm not sure you'd really want to go walking in Vog Mur and almost certainly not in the Wastelands but I get your point. :) Cheers.

This map has a great aged feel with a lot of character, yet it's still very clean and easy to read. Excellent work!
