Illustrated maps for village promotion and tourist places. Created in Affinity Designer using vector technique combined with bitmap using Concept Master Vol.1: Nature Brush Pack brushes and those created by myself. So far, for several maps, I have drawn about 200 objects with varying degrees of accuracy.

I have two small concerns with the first map:
1. The “E”, “W” and “S” in compass roses are normally (but not always) written as ‘normal’ LTR text with no rotation.
2. There is no legend so I’m having trouble figuring out what is what. For example, near the centre-bottom of the map the three lines – pink, blue and black-white-dash – seem to be ‘intertwined’ in a way that I wouldn’t expect roads, rivers and rail lines(?) to do. Also I don’t understand what the thick brown line is.

Other than that I really like the look of them.

@GarryP

It is a mountain valley - roads, rivers and railroads are indeed very picturesquely intertwined. The brown line is the border of the county.
Map are not for precise locating. In the context of the place where the board with the map is presented, everything is clear 🙂

@pgraficzny Love it!  It looks like a beautiful place to live.  And is that a 200-year old "monumental beech" tree?  It looks gorgeous.

@jmwellborn Thank you for the kind words. I also love the lands of the Polish-Czech border, where I live, I like graphic works on interesting objects, of which there are many. The term "monumental beech" refers to the official term "natural monument" given to legally protected natural objects.

Sorry for my English.

Your English is perfect.  And what a lovely term "monumental beech."  In the state of Maryland (where I used to live) we had the largest oak tree (the Wye Oak) in the USA which was estimated to be 460 years old before it was destroyed in a severe thunderstorm in 2002.  If you Google "Wye Oak" you can read about it.  It was indeed Monumental and a terrible loss.  I was fortunate to seem it several years before in all its glory.
