THE SANTHARIAN MAPS TUTORIAL

BY
ARTIMIDOR FEDERKIEL

STEP 1:
DRAWING A ROUGH SKETCH

Hello and welcome to our little How-to-make-a-nice-little-map-thingy tutorial. Our plan is to deliver a typical Santharian grayscale map in the style you can view it in the Santharian map section. In this very case I've taken the drawing of the R'unorian Isles to use it for this tutorial.

So what ingredients do we need? First of all some imagination. Then a good graphic program, Adobe Photoshop (Version 5.5 or higher) prefered - at least this tutorial refers to all functions which are provided with Photoshop. Yup. And finally some time. Or lots of. Depending on how detailed the map should look like.

Okeydokey. Time for a start:
