View Full Version : The Town of Varduh

-A Work of Homage-
I have always wanted to make a map like the Ashenport (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?3135-Ashenport-Town-Map) map by Mike Schley (http://www.cartographersguild.com/member.php?1088-Schley) (A pro artist/member here). I am still working on this "D&D" style, however I am happy with the results I got making Varduh. This style is heavy on hand drawing and color/texture balancing. I made this in Photoshop 7 using my new WACOM intuos4. This has been some of the most fun I have ever had with any map. I hope that many adventures find their way to this town and find everything they need to have a great time. It is nice to finish a map that looks good to others, thanks to all for the positive feedback!

Looks fantastic but I'm also a big fan of the schley style too so I can't really not like it. I look forward to more and seeing how you slowly make your own unique style out of it.
