Handpainted Fantasy Map Concept by Djekspek Handpainted Fantasy Map Concept by Djekspek
Was going through my archive and found this laying around in my concept folders. More or less a try-out for a more realistic looking map and colorpalette. Didn't care too much for it back then, but when I look at it now I think it actually has potential as a style. Landmass was inspired by the UK to give it a feeling of 'I know this place'. cheers!

Very nice, as always!  Haha, it seems I keep finding my way back to you now and again, through other people, or seeing your maps pop up in places. ^.^

Hi, I use your map for my game torthegame.com
I use it as placeholder until I find someone who wants to make maps.
Have added link to portfolio.

Let me know if you are interested in helping us with maps

I was wondering if I could have permission to use this, for my own help, in visualizing a fantasy world I'm making? Or, if I could purchase the rights. Thanks

Just curious, did you use any sort of "mountain brushes" or are they all done by hand? Great work! I need to make some mountain ranges, and I really like they way yours look... Any tips? :)

:icondjekspek:
Djekspek Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
thanks :) I'm afraid they are all handpainted so no mountain brushes used. Roughly the process I use is: first draw the ranges, then paint the colors, then use a grunge brush in overlay to create texture, add some hi-lites with bright yellow in overlay mode and finally add more linework for details and dark shadows... not much help I guess but that's how I did it :)

Beautiful work. The fringe areas don't seem to obey the same perspective as the mountains, but not quite sure what you could do about that, other than to put 3D-esque cliffs along the bottom coast... A minor criticism for great work.

hehe, not 'super' but enough to handle big files, and PS is pretty good with big files, as long as you don't apply all kind of layer effects/styles. I'm actually saving for a better one as save-times can run up to 5-10 minutes when files get really big (2-3GB) :P cheers, DJ
