Well, Here is a simplified arqueologial map of ancient Hattusa, capital of Hitite empire.
The map uses some textures to try to make it look a papire (no too old), and at the same time it mixes a satelite image with a hand drawn shaded relief. The satelite image was filtred to get only the greenish zones, so the can be used to give some color to the paper and shaded relief.
Then, the archeological vector lines wher drawn in illustrator, and gived a little transparency to make the incorporate into the texture.
The pretended final result was to get a feeling of old papire, but with the clarity of 19th century arqueological maps.
It has been published in this month's Historia National Geographic, Spain.
I hope you like it.
Any comments are wellcome
