O' how the mightiest of mans creations have fallen, the fortress of the esteemed White Eagles - now in disrepair with the worst of scum inhabiting it, the self proclaimed Black Eagles. A cult surrounding a mysterious leader who is said to be profound in that of the darkest of arts.

Blah, blah, i'll write up a bit more later, it's late and I should be in bed.

Anyway, I decided to give this a shot, because I thought it would be fun to be in a contest again.

Hopefully I can get this done in time (I still have to do the underground layer and a small overland map.)
But - if not, i can just rip it in half and call it a ruined map ;)

Looks nice. Drawn and scanned or drawn with a tablet? Either way, I like the style.

Tablet, although the reason I can do this is the result of many a doodle in class.

Looking good. Keep it up and you're getting my vote. ;)

Are you going to color it as well?

EE, don't forget the Latest WIP tag if you want the scraper to pick it up. It would be a shame if it fell by the wayside just because of that!!! I want to see more!!!

Yeah, i'm going to color it as well if I have time.

And thank you for catching that! Would've gone badly otherwise.

gogogo! I want to see the rest. Forget about friends, they just suck up time that could be spent on drawing more maps for us to look at :)

I managed to get some decent work done :D Now that all the grunt work is gone - the floor tiles, and the walls. It should be smooth sailing from here.

(Comments, criticism, etc, etc please :))


On a side note - I consider this a spiritual successor to my first ever try of a hand drawn battlemap (http://www.cartographersguild.com/virtual-tabletop-battlemap-mapping/15813-multiple-vtt-wip.html).

Looking good! The only thing that catches my eye is the direction change of the stone pavers in the lower-left corridor. It almost looks as if the diagonal pavers from the section in the right end in the air...as if at a balcony or something. That's what it makes my eye do, anyway. I'm not at all sure how to "fix" it, or even if it needs to be fixed. Can't wait to see this finished.

Whew, everything on this map done except coloring and some minor tuning - next, I start on the regional map i .want. to have along with this and the dungeon under-neath the keep, and then compile them in some sort of report around the area.

Here's what I have, i'd continue a bit more.. but, with my computer and photoshop (for coloring.) I can't do it, this computer cannot handle brushes well at all.. So, I tried shading (Using an ENOURMOUS amount of paths for it. Because, I can't paint with photoshop on this computer.)


And - here's the unfinished linework of the regional map. Which I won't finish by this contest. I will finish it though. (Along with the dungeon part of the castle.)

It's a shame I won't be able to finish it.
