This is the first completed map for my forthcoming novel, The Calligraphy of Demons. I also use this world as the setting for my ongoing D&D campaign (though it's set centuries in the future from the novel, so as not to cause conflicts). This is just one very small section of the world of the Thread.
The vast majority of the work was done on the iPad with an Adonit stylus, using the awesome app called ProCreate. I brought it into Photoshop at the end to add the typography.
Much thanks to all of the amazing and inspiring fantasy cartographers on DA, especially those who post tutorials. Also thanks to National Geographic magazine, for sparking a life-long love of mapping, and to J.R.R. Tolkien and Ursula K. Le Guin for instilling a life-long passion for fantasy.
