World Map by Dyemelikeasunset World Map by Dyemelikeasunset
The world map was drawn by Giant explorers. The Southern Giant Empire is the most powerful nation of the world, holding the most political authority than any other race. The entire south is united under their rule, while the rest of the world is greatly effected by their trade and influence. The compass, therefore, points South.
The oceans surrounding the various continents are unexplored, often believed to be the end of the world.

This map doesn't include any city names yet, and I may draw a more comprehensive version of it in the future, so think of this like a rough guide for now.

At the moment, I'm leaning towards calling this fantasy world "The Four Realms," please let me know what you think in the comments below! (also feel free to suggest some names too, haha)

I absolutely love this. And it's giving me inspiration to finally do a map of the continent on which my original story takes place.

Ive got a question, do you plan to make a story about this, or maybe a videogame, or a film or will all just stay as drawings? just curious.

this is the world! I'm still trying to figure out the realistic scope of this world, but I actually see the north, east, south, and western sectors as their own continents

Hey Dye, I am making a Mercenary guild and I as wondering where would be a good spot for the guild to located, I was thinking near Heaven's Summit and the Lagoon of Solitude
Reply
:icondyemelikeasunset:
Dyemelikeasunset Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Actually both those spots probably wouldn't be good-- Heaven's Summit is the highest peak in the world of Ocean of Cycles, and the Lagoon of Solitude is deeply protected by the Fae, who are a very secretive and xenophobic race
If you're looking to set one up in the East, I think the Sparkling Gulf or somewhere in the Unseen Rainforest would probably be best! The Rainforest is a good spot, since there are a lot of mercenaries in the underground world of the Dryads's empire

Just wanted to say that I really like the way you did the lettering on this map.  It's so well integrated and still manages to be perfectly legible.  Was it done by hand, or did you use a font?

this was my first map, so I don't think I have the best advice since I'm pretty fresh to it myself :lmao:
but I started simple with big shapes and landmarks and general area proportions. even if your mountains start out looking like little "^^^^" that's okay! The point of a map is to communicate information. Once you have all your landmarks in the places you want, you can start illustrating nicer graphics :)
