Post World of Lykarnia: Cartography
Okay so it's not "art" in the sense of this forum but I consider Cartography a type of art in itself. Here's some work in progress stuff from our cartographer Andy Males. Enjoy!

Looking great! And cartography is certainly art.

Oh, cartography is definitely art. The exacting and precision detail plus a sense of aesthetics required by the art is entirely within the scope of this section.

Cartography is not only art in an aesthetic sense but demonstrates a passing familiarity of climate effects and causes, hydrology, and geology. All arts in themselves as much as sciences.

What is started looks good...

The successive use of texture layers is excellent.

I was thinking that too! It keeps it really clean and professional.

Extremely good map rendering and digital software skills!
