this little map is a style test for a much bigger projekt.
Hagavona is a just a farm somewhere in the fertile plains of Notane, located in the east of Camoa (http://www.cartographersguild.com/finished-maps/19189-camoa-island.html). the fertile plains would be the bigger projekt.

First i drew it with pencil, inked it and then colored it with gouache and a pretty small brush. i would love any kind of comments and critics!!

Quite a lovely piece. I especially love the subtle gradient of green from dark to light and saturated. Nice job on the details too.

Nice work on this leen, I like the colors.

I really like this leen - an original and detailed perspective, and a very human scale which is unusual on a map.

It looks great! One thing that I noticed, however, is that the line of grass running up the road seems unnaturally unbroken. That minor detail does not at all detract from this great piece.

Excellent, leen! Green is awesome, and the line-drawn details are great. :) It would be kinda cool to see an animal or two in one of the pasture blocks... what kind of farm is it? Horse?

Beautiful! Almost more of a landscape painting, I could see this being published in a children's book. Well done!
