The Regnum Comission by FeroceFV The Regnum Comission by FeroceFV
A quid-pro-quo commission from a fellow artist AZ Rune, this map is made for a soon-to-start RPG campaign. The client provided me with a rough map and some written guidance, and this is what I came up with. With this map, I tried to do as little direct terrain marking as possible: just borders, city labels, and a few geographic labels.

Acknowledgements:
+The techniques I used in making this map were variations on four separate Arsheesh tutorials, specifically his Eriond tutorial, his map border tutorial, his heraldic shield mini-tutorial, and his icon mini-tutorial.
+The client took the northern continent's original outline from an Arsheesh map (Eriond, I think). I re-did the topography and climate.
+The general shape of the Vorlantis heraldry, The flame in the Yin Drakkos shield and the lion in the Sussuria shield are based on free-use images that I could find no artist credits for. They are not exact traces, but I used them as references.
+The outline of the southern continent comes from a Palladium Fantasy book, the Library of Bletherad.

Tools used:
Inkspace: Heraldry designs
WILBUR: Topography enhancements, rivers
GIMP: everything else

This map looks like it would be good for a video game like just cause or arma or maybe eldet scrolls if the two were connected

Well, thanks! I'd be interested in such a game. I've been following the Regnum campaign off and on for over a year now (linked above)

Hey congrats on this commission, it turned out very nicely.  My favorite bit of heraldry is the far right shield with the white tree set against the red background.  Very lovely.  I also like the silver icon with the wings.  Once again a great map.

Cheers.

Thank you! Both the heraldic shields and the icons were adaptations of your tutorials. Really, most of what I do are adaptations of your tutorials.

I had a lot of fun in the back-and-forth with the client working out the themes of each region and doing the corresponding heraldry. Thanks for the kind words!

Thank you! This was my most time-consuming project so far, largely because of the heraldry and frame. I'm contemplating a couple of maps in the future that could involve a similar approach, but I have some other projects to hold my attention for now.
