A map for a project that I never ended up quite completing, but I liked the style of it so I tossed it up. It was for a book on the historical events surrounding the battle of Manzikert, and there was to have been some paintings going on in the bottom that the client ended up taking to another artist.
The compass was styled after maps of that era, as well as the boats, and the specific arrangements of the elements and style of the little mountains and things. So it evokes both a medieval map (there aren’t really “accurate” Byzantine era maps) and a fantasy sort of map. I like the result, but it’s not quite as polished as I wanted it to be.
