North America - Anglo-Iberia by Neethis North America - Anglo-Iberia by Neethis
Yo all, finally I present to you the map of North America, of my Anglo-Iberian timeline.

If you know my previous work, you will of course recognise the new style - all thanks go to :iconsapiento: for his fantastic map-making guide at: [link] :D

My apologies for how long it's taken me to get this finished, but dividing up continents takes a while sometimes :) Now I've finished this, I should be progressing on a little faster with other parts of the world and timeline.

Any and all questions and comments are welcome, as always.

Oh great. I'm stuck with either the French or the Canadians.

Wow, the detail is great, and what you did with the borders is awesome! The texturing really makes it stand out, I'm jealous lol, amazing Job! Is there a chance for a Cascadian-Oregonian federation? Otherwise I'd have to cross the border to visit family lol xD

Thanks! Strangely I fell out of love with this texture style in favour of a more wiki-like style of map, myself :P lol. As for Cascadia-Oregon, who knows? ;) They're both relatively small nations in a sea of larger players, and both would certainly benefit from a merger...

No problem. Really? I would kill to be able to texture my maps like this, but i only have apple works to use, so mine probably wont go much farther than what they're at xP. I have a question, what do you base your borders off of? I personally always have trouble drawing borders at a whim if i don't have any potential historical or physical features to work off of. (I'm very picky about how countries are shaped sadly, call it weird if you want lol xD)

Thanks :D I usually find base maps of the respective time period I'm working on, and trace over them :) I use a program called GIMP, it's free but I'm not sure if its avaliable on mac...

Wow, cool map man, a new approach to north America i see, uhhh but is not the little boot like island of the cost of south America part of the Caribbean, i believe the island is called "Trinidad" or something, correct me if i am wrong, but other wise man, insane idea :clap:

Thanks for the comment and compliments :D

Indeed, Trinidad is part of the Caribbean. That it wasn't included here is unfortunately down to my own laziness :XD: this map took me ages, working with the style besides the history, and I didn't spend as much time as I should have doing the final polishing. I hope that doesn't diminish the final product too much :D

Probably the most beautiful-looking of your maps, even though I don't like getting my state (Illinois) absorbed into Virginia :)

Virginia is called "mother of states" because its claims were so wide. I see the mother never let her children go ;)

The Boston Confederation is one of the nations that makes up the North-East American Congress, a sorta EU-esque organisation consisting of everything from Maryland to Nova Scotia, up the Atlantic Coast. In a world with the mega-Virginia and -Carolina (not to mention Mexico and Louisiana - and that's just in North America) it was the only way for these smaller nations to survive, unless they wanted to fall back under the now federalised yolk of the Anglo-Iberian Empire...

You mean Northeast. :)

Confederation of Boston is Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and most of Connecticut.

Lost Vermont and the Connecticut panhandle to New York.

btw, I found it looked better to make the base picture darker, and set the plasma layer to divide rather than multiply... that's just to my tastes, anyways :)

As I said in the tut: there are many ways to make a good map. The possibilities a good graphic program offers can be combined in multiple ways,creating astounding effects if you have an eye for it and - of course - ideas! Especially the different layer modes or colour options give you a wide variety to play with your picture.
Go on, I'm eager to see your next map.:)

I'm not sure whether to work which continent to work on a modern version of for this timeline... either that, or I may start work on a couple of other little side projects that've been rattling around my mind for a while :shrug:

Lol which one? New Jersey and Maryland are the only ones with changed borders from our own timeline

Thanks for the fave :)

Pennsylvania ("Pennsland") though it did lose a little of it's SW border to Virgnia. No biggie, though.

Neethis Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009
That little southwest chunk was claimed by both Pennsylvania and Virginia in our own timeline until 1790 :D I think it was probably only decided in favour of Pennsylvania by someone like myself, who in reality likes to neaten and square off borders :) lol

Looky for more: [link]
