The Unknowne Lands by Ramah-Palmer The Unknowne Lands by Ramah-Palmer
The Unknowne Lands

It was said by the lowly and lordly alike
that the fog and the mists and the lands set adrift
would eternally sail
till the warring was done.
Till the lands and the kings numbered one.

Done in Photoshop CS with a Wacom Bamboo tablet.

In an effort to force myself back into getting something done I spent the last few days finishing this map. There are a few bits and bobs I'm not particularly happy about (and will probably fix when I'm not sick of the sight of it) but for now I'm reasonably pleased with it.


The pieces of poem at either side are not sequential, rather they are two excerpts from an imaginary tale about the island, one taken from near the beginning and one from near the end.

Finished product very much worth the effort, I think, however long it took.

Oh Ramah! So glad you finished this, I'm just seeing it for the first time and I'm about to go dig into it so I can squeeze all the goodness out. I'm glad you are pushing yourself and hope you will be about more. Thank you for your effort. I always feel more motivated myself when I look at your work.

Cheers for that, man. It's good to be getting back into it and although I'm not there yet I can feel my mojo slipping back into place somewhat. :)

Thanks a lot. :) I guess maybe the palette and the triptych style but mine has rather a lot less naked people in it. :)

Cheers DJ. I'm not entirely happy with the mist myself - I had a real struggle getting it to look anything like I envisioned but I can live with it... for now. :)

Cheers guys. I'm glad I finally got this out of the way and can now concentrate on more important things. I haven't been around for months and have really struggled to even switch on the computer, never mind actually do something useful. I'm looking forward to catching up on what I've missed and I'm hoping you two and the rest of the community have made lots of beautiful maps for me to check out and get jealous over. :)

Oh wow. I remember when you started this, back in the day. Glad to see you finally finished! Looks awesome beyond words; the waves and clouds, the warm colors of the mountains, the gentle undulations of the plains... all gorgeous.
