The Land Of Elfcarron by WorldBuilding The Land Of Elfcarron by WorldBuilding
This is a Elfcarron, a test island for new map styles I am teaching myself and developing.

If you're interested then I may open up Elfcarron as an open source world for other writers, designers and world builders to play in.

I love this style and will be producing a tutorial to show you just how to draw your own map over on The World Building School as part of The Authors Guide To Drawing Maps.

If you like this map then I've published it as a customisable map pack over on Graphic River. Click Here to learn more about what's in the pack and how to purchase it The pack is only $3.

Hey Hatimous,

Thank you for the compliment. No, the terrain on this map was randomly generated so I don't really use references.

Hope you're having a great week?

It's a very clean and attractive map. Could due with a few other elements, such as a scale and compass rose, but nice work!

Cheers,

Aye, good point. I'll have a ponder at adding those things. Though I'll have to do some research into a compass rose that I like and then workout how to draw it :)

All the best,

I think there's a tutorial for how to make a scale floating around some where over at the Cartographers Guild. Also, if you want to save time in making your compass rose, you could always use a font. Here's one that's pretty decent [link]

Cheers Arsheesh, I'll take a look at the link.

Also I think it's about time I started to be active over on The Cartographers Guild. I've lurked from time to time but kept forgetting my password plus struggled to navigate the forums.

And I quite like the idea of entering some of the competitions to see if my maps match up to the talent in the guild. :)

Glad to here it! I look forward to seeing you around over there. The competitions are always fun. I've only ever entered in one myself, but when I get some time I'd like to participate more myself.

Cheers,

hehe thank you Xanrian.

I'm putting together a tutorial for how to draw a map in this style. The first part will be published on The World Building School [link] this Friday. So hopefully that will help to save your life ;)

Though if after reading the tutorial you still don't think you could draw a map to save your life then you could always commission me? [link] hehe :P

looks like an interesting place, I have 2 questions

1/ what is the scale ?
2/ what is the name of the big bay in Zarun ?

Hi Ashimbabbar,

1, The Scale... I'll be honest I haven't thought much about that but if one of the bars around the edge = 100 miles that would make a fairly decent sized landmass. Certainly enough to tell some great stories in but not too big that people get lost. Saying that it would put the closest major cities over 100 miles away from eachother...

2, Do you mean the Big Bay on the left of Zarun? So far it has no name, do you have a suggestion and I'll add it to the map :)

All the best,
