Majhar Ruins © Christina Roberts (Neyjour) 2012
I found a close-up/macro texture of water rivulets that had cut through sand, and wanted to see how well it might work for the base terrain of a map (mainly the elevation). It actually turned out a lot better than I was expecting, so I kept going and made it into a finished map!

I just ran across this map again and suddenly realized I recognized the name "Majhar". ERB's at the Earth's core series is one of my favorites from a long time ago.
I've actually never read any of his books. I've only seen movie/TV adaptations. Majhar was a place (or character) in the series? I did a Google search but couldn't find anything..
In the books they were a race of super intelligent Pterodactyl-like creatures. However, in double checking this I discovered that they are called Mahars, not Majhar, so no relation. As I said, it has been over 30 years since I read the books. Still, a very nice map!
Just great @.@
Great technique! It works very well!!
