Between this lovely discussion and chele's fantabulous blog entry I wanted to see A)who makes maps here on the 'D and B ) for those persons to show them of and talk about their techniques. I personally have only ever made one map. Here it is: I am so not a mapmaker. However, the world had so much detail I felt it needed a visual. Plus, it has a kind of rough/sketchy feel to it, so I could make the map match and it didn't have to be perfect. Pretty much all the images you see are stamps of some sort. The only thing I actually drew was the color blocks for the faction areas. To have them more see-through and work with the folds and crinkles I set the layer mode to multiply and lowered the opacity a tad. The hardest part was probably placement. I actually wrote out all the areas on mini sticky notes and shuffled them about to give me a better idea of what I was doing before I took it to he computer. I looked like a nutter, but it paid off really well. Let's see those maps (and yes, you can show off your floor plans, too)!
