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!

Djekspek, you're maps are nothing short of extraordinary, I'm seriously jealous of your talent.  I would also like to use this map for my long running D and D game on RPOL.net, a free role playing site with a play by post format.  I would give you full credit of course, it would be a crime not to tell more people where to see your amazing work.  May I have your permission to use this map for my RPOL game?

Really awesome map! I use it for my Blade of the Iron Throne RPG campaign. Do you by any chance have it in a higher resolution? I'd like to zoom in on an area and print it on A3.

glad it's of use to you :) unfortunately this is what it is... it was really just a concept to try out some new style so it's not too detailed...

I love this Map, and would like to adapt it to my world. If I give you full credit, can I use the map on my Wiki on Obsidian Portal?
This is not a money making exercise, just me making a world for playing D&D.

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.

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? :)
Reply
: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 :)
