Historical Map by Svera Historical Map by Svera
Well, it's still not a good name ... let's face it, I suck at finding good titles :D

Anyway, here it is, my old map. A few years ago I worked in a library with a large map archive and I decided I wanted to draw a map myself, but (of course) one of a fantasy world.

Maybe I'll colour it one day, but for now I want to finish it as it is.

If you're interested, you can find the steps here

Tools: 2B pencil and then indian ink. I haven't used this much before, but I'm happy how it turned out.

Damn... This one of those maps you get the reaction "I want to get physical copy of this!" It looks so old, Especially the drawings and icons.

Oh wow!! That's fantastic Svera!! :heart: I've studied a lot of history over my years and have seen a lot of old maps and yours looks so authentic! If it wasn't for the fantasy names I would think it was real. Excellent job! :heart:

Das dürfte eine Menge Gedult erfordert haben! Wenn ich mir nur den Rand anschaue mit dem Muster... wieso bleibt das denn so schön gleichmäßig?^^ Bei mir wäre das entweder geschrumpft oder größer geworden.
Die ganzen Monster sind auch toll, genau so, wie die Schiffe. Da müsstest du jetzt nur noch ne Fantasygeschichte dazu schreiben... :D

Vielen lieben Dank :) So gleichmäßig ist das Muster gar nicht, aber ich habe mir geholfen, indem ich ein Muster entwickelt habe mit genau einem Zentimeter Breite. Dann musste ich die Zentimeter nur noch markieren, so dass ich nicht allzu stark vom ursprünglichen Muster abgewichen bin.

That's beautiful! I love old maps... I actually did something similar (but way less intricated) when I was a teenager - sadly, it got lost somewhere during some of my movings...
Btw. how about "Hic sunt leones" for a name? That's what I always think when I see an old map :)
