Hi, I'm glad that the guys at GameSalute allowed me to post this finished map. Attached the final version of the map I created for the game Story Realms. It's the world of Storm Hollow, where all stories take place :) . The game is running a kickstarter you can check out here (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/springboard/story-realms). Also a high-res version of the map can be downloaded there. I have to give a big thanks to their art-director Dann May for helping me and polishing the map into what it is now. He also did the card-holders and mountain background illustration.

cheers, DJ

This is absolutely fantastic!!!
How long do you need for such a map? I know this is usually hard to say, but an estimate?

thanks guys, @Sapiento, it was quite some work as there are so many details: I spend around 150h total on this (incl. labelling, sketches, revisions, etc.). About half of it was on the line-work. The real size is 22x22 inch at 600 dpi :)

If you had told me you had needed only half the time I would have stopped mapping and gone to a monastery. ;-)

But jokes aside: it is clear that you spent much time and effort to make this map.

That is just phenomenal!!! DJ, you are truly amazing. The Weirding Wilds are my favourite bit, but I could just get lost in this map for hours and hours. It's truly a work of art.

How do you just keep getting better! I always love checking in with the guild and seeing one of your finished map threads. I just sit here for a while and study this piece.... drooling. 22x22 @ 600dpi - I don't think my laptop would like this too much !

thanks guys! @RJB: it's indeed rather a monster (total size of files for this is over 5GB :) . Btw if anyone is interested in a 24x36 inch poster version.... They have it available in their bazaar (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/springboard/story-realms/posts/306089). cheers, DJ
