So I'm really not sure when I will get the Black and White one finished.

Ralph from ProFantasy Software pointed out that the map was probably done by Pete Fenlon.

I must agree with him.  So I'm making the map again in Pete Fenlon style which is offered by ProFantasy Software.

Gotta agree with Rob, you ARE productive. Keep up the good work mate!

I like the black and white 'style' more than the first one, would be interesting to see that one 'colored' if you get my meaning. Again, the fuzzy look doesn't seem to be 'aged' to me, as it's all uniform but that's personal taste. I'd still like to see a nice crisp version to play with and add some other effects if you get a chance.

Later my friend!

Here's what I mean...



Most of this historical map is crisp and clean, but you see fold marks, scratches, occasional holes, even 'rub-off' from some other old print, but the whole image is not blurry. I can see adding the above and may some fuzzy rings (wet cups/mugs being set on the map at some time) to age it, but not the whole map. That just makes it seem fuzzy, not old.  CC3 may not do these but PS or PSP certainly can.... and I'll even volunteer to help you do them if you would like.

Two more historical examples...

last century


1829. notice the cloth backing showing thru at points.

Not trying to nitpick, I love the work and effort you're putting in. Keep it up!
