World Map of Eriond by arsheesh World Map of Eriond by arsheesh
This is map of Eriond, the world that is the setting for a homebrew RPG setting that I've sort of been working on for the past several years (though not as much recently). This map took quite a long time to finish, but I'm fairly pleased with the end result. It is necessary to download the image if you would like to see much of the detail.

As per usual, this map is done in GIMP and Wilbur, with some of the text elements being done in Inkscape.

Cheers,
-Arsheesh

Love this map!  Would you be interested in selling poster-sized prints of it?  I'd like to buy one to hang over my game table.

Hi Failheart, sorry for the delayed reply, I've had my head down working on a commission. 

I'm really flattered that my map will receive a place of honor at your game table!  I've just enabled the print function for this so you should be good to go. 

Just an FYI, I had not initially created this map to be printed at poster size, but after reducing the DPI (Dots per inch) of the image to poster size, I managed to make the image large enough to be printed at 20x30" (with a bit of black bordering the top and bottom.  I can't promise that any print size larger than that will turn out well - I rather imagine it will be grainy. 

Best wishes on your adventures, may all your dice roll true.

Cheers,
-Arsheesh

I'm a huge fan of your style. I've been trying to teach myself mapping with GIMP as well but I can't yet make the mountains look quite as crisp and attractive.

Thanks GraveyandDuck!  Admittedly the mountains are one of the hardest parts of this method.  It took me quite a bit of trial and error to make these mountains.  Best advice I can give is just to keep practicing.  The more practice you get, the easier it becomes.  You begin to develop an eye for it.

Cheers,

Beautiful map.  My learning curve on adjusting the gradients & sliders for them needs work lol.  It would not adjust for me with Draconia, & I was afraid to ruin the project too.  Next map, I will attempt more, get my basins defined before the Wilbur process (I hoped Wilbur was gonna carve them for me) & do a proper map, like you have here my friend.

Wonderful world map!

Thanks JaeDub, I'm glad you like the map.  I think your Draconia map "is" a proper map.  Of course there's a learning curve, but you've done very well for just starting out.

I stumbled upon this, and I'd like to know how you'd do this sort of map for programs like GIMP and Inkscape.

I've written up a tutorial on how to create a map in this style over at the Cartographers Guild.  Here's a Link: www.cartographersguild.com/tut…

Love the map! Your naming convention is solid for the countries/cities. Any work done this well deserves kudos! What fonts did you use? They are clean looking. Love the mountain ranges too. Very well done! 10/10!

Thanks for the feedback Argontath! As to fonts, I used Optimus Princepts Bold (for the continents) and Paternoster AH (for the countries).

Look great!

The Mountains? Displacement?

Displacement as in.. um.... Did you give the mountains the realistic look using your brushes?

arsheesh Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah. I used a combination method which involved generating random cloud patterns, linking them together (via the cut and paste method) into mountain ranges, and then further sculpting them with a soft round brush set at low opacity.

ah!! That's a neat way of making mountains. :D I think I'll try that.
