Thedas World Map [Dragon Age] by DwarfChieftain
Thedas World Map [Dragon Age]
This map explores the continent of Thedas, the center continent of the Dragon Age Setting, where all of Dragon Age games and novels take place. 

Getting better at shaping and elevating mountains with every map. Experimental water depth brushes, more advanced painting for natural biomes. I really hope this one is readable enough, unlike The Witcher map, just make sure you either click on the zoomable version or download the map. Zooming required for small details. 

Most of the information came from my own knowledge about the games, the Dragon Age Wiki, the Dragon Age official map on Bioware's website (what is official is canon, am I right?) and also some parts from novels. Contours follow a map from Dragon Age Wiki.

Apologies to everyone who was waiting for a full-blown map+borders extravaganza, I want this piece to be uploaded so quickly and I have so little time with the holidays and all :(

Feedback, suggestions and constructive criticism is encouraged ;)

CREDITS

Thanks to whomever created the map I linked above, I vaguely traced the contours from it!

Thanks to Tear for his Saderan Tutorial, that I use for the "clever" part of mapmaking. Also shoutout to Cartographers Guild!

Thanks to The Dragon Age Wiki for loads of information about settlement placement, mountain names and a ton more!

Shoutout to :iconeragon2589: I used your location map icons, that you allowed to use, for settlement pings.

TERRIFIC THANKS TO BIOWARE AND EVERYONE INVOLVED WITH THE CREATION OF DRAGON AGE. 

Don't dig underground, might wake up an archdemon!

WIP Project Sneakpeek by DwarfChieftain
WIP Project Sneakpeek
Hello!

I haven't put any new works in the last 9 or so months, so just to make it clear - I did not disappear! Can't show too much of the latest map I'm working on. Lately I had a ton of other things to do besides cartography, but I've been busy planning and designing this new map, and I'm currently knee-deep in the contour stage. As you can see, this map will incorporate the flexible lake and river drawing technique that I used in my Witcher map. However, instead of going for only a couple of lakes and big rivers with deltas, this map will include entire swamp and wetland river systems! Lots of fun drawing them, but it takes a while ;)

And thanks for all the kind comments and Llama badges everyone!

Do you have the Tamriel map without the border?
