I found this map interesting for the map gallery since it has a lot of work to make it look as a XIX century map. Why 19th century? Well, two reasons: the first one is that along the year I've already made other maps of the region and of those times based in a stone looking texture, so I need to "invent" something different. The second is that the main works about this region (middle east) where made in 19th century, so many maps are from that time.
The map has a work based in a hand drawn shaded relief, superimposed over a DEM in 3D to get some relief. Then it was rendered and appied a different hatching filters, depending upon the shading darkness. Selecting the gray scale with the magic wand in photoshop. For the sea, I applied a engraver waving filter.
To accomplish a paper texture, I applied a line hach to a complete gray image, which I later gived a "paper tone".
Everything was composed in photoshop, except for the proyection, whic was accomplished with 3D nature designer and reprojectin in arcgis
