Definitely a beautiful piece of work, i can tell that a lot of effort was put into it. Love the detail and mountain schematics; very well balanced as well. I like the rugged yet still simplistic look. Though I do have a small problem I'd say to better space the Provence names in relation to town names. I know that back in the old days of cartography it was how they did it but a little bit of cleanup wouldn't hurt. I also would recommend using the 3 layer technique where the base is the paper texture then do a combination of 50% additive layer and 50% colour burn, makes the image come out quite nicely. I'm no cartography genius so who am I to talk? I think that this is something that hasn't been done before so I strongly believe you should do more maps. In the end I'm just a nerd sitting behind his computer drooling over cartography so my opinion isn't very professional. I'd love to see more of your work! -Dan -Hopefully my critique wasn't too harsh.
Hmm that's a good question. I never thought about this before, I guess I left out Lanka unconsciously. But if I think about it, I think it's because I made this map more from a historical perspective. And Lanka (in my mind) is associated with The Ramayana, which I subconsciously link more with mythology and religion than with history.
