A blog where I talk about my adventures in worldbuilding and all aspects of it in the fictional world of Elyden - expect ramblings, lots of maps, sporadic bursts of talk about getting published that don't last long, and randomness!

another contest entry for cartographersguild.com; a largely inconsequential island off the southern coast of Pelasgos in a 16th-17th century style. the contest guidelines were to base a map of of a cloud, so that's what i did, using a threshold layer and various other styles to get the effect i wanted. I'm pretty happy with this one, though as always i spent too long on it - about 10 - 12 hours I reckon, which is simply too long for a map this size (though i did create everything from scratch, apart from the paper and the cartouched and ship, the latter of which i might be changing.
There's a small story attached, indicating that the map was found by someone and then handed over to 'My Lady' for examination. Speculation commence!
