===================

This is a map which served as the testing ground for the new and improved techniques I have been working to create.

PHASE I – Base Map (completed)
PHASE II – Countries, colours & borders (completed)
PHASE III – Lola pattern, city dots & names, country & region names, river & sea names (completed)
PHASE IV – Lola coordinates, scale & legend (completed)
PHASE V – FINISHED

The map itself depicts the kingdoms of Iberia in the year 1270.

Since you make such fantastic maps I´d kindly ask you, could you make a Tutorial to share
your master-knowledge with us maybe? XD It would be lovely^^
Definitly one of the best maps here on DA.

Or at least could you tell me, how you make this lovely frame around the map?

Thanks for the compliments, I really appreciate that :bow:

Would it be cliché to say the magician doesn't reveal his tricks? :XD:
I've considered making some kind of video tutorial, but I think it's better to spend time making new maps now, rather than tutorials.
But maybe one day I'll do that, though, if I have time.

The frame is done with two separate layers, for the exterior frame and the interior frame, and the "Stroke" blending option.
The amount of pixels (the thickness of the frame) depends on the size of your image.

Nah I understand you of course, I´m just into map making again at the moment and want to improve my
skills a bit, so I ask some masters of Deviantart for tipps, but if you wanna keep it, I totally understand it,
it was surely a lot of work to come so far.

If you ever make a Tutorial, just write a journal or extra picture and I will check it of course :)

Have a nice weekend bye ;)

Sure, if I make a tutorial I'll definitely post it on dA :)
And if you have a question, you can always note me and I'll see if I know the answer ;)

Thank you!

Yes, it was meant to be concise because it's "only" my testing-ground for the new methods and techniques I have been working to create. So I didn't want to throw a million details onto it. :)
