Hi all,

This piece, commissioned for the french RPG Wastburg (3rd add-on release April/May 2014) , was made a few weeks ago. It's digitally hand-drawn in Photoshop and its orginal size is 7x9"

Aaaah, this is beautiful *__* God, I just LOVE how you coloured the wood and the tiles...

I agree - I like the blended edges of everything - the fine line to define the shape in just the right colour so that it isn't too jarring and unreal :)

Do you use brushes or tiles (or whatever they're called!) for the wood or is it all done by hand?

No, it's not an issue of taste... it feels unbalanced... ? Idk ... I see things funny... maybe it's just that it's so much lighter than the mappy part? idk


I want some potato beer ! D:

I love the map, and I must say I also love the border, so I think it is a matter of taste - and for me its yummy.

Gaaaaah this is where my fail explaining becomes an issue... I LIKE the border... i just...


I LOVE my purple/black geometric print blouse. I ADORE my yellow denim skirt. If I put them beside each other in the closet, my brain explodes.

I LOVE the map. I LOVE the border. When I look at them together, I get dizzy.

I don't know why... maybe I'm just weird x.x

Nice. Don't see too many hand drawn buildings and this one sets the bar high.

Edit: and wouldn't'cha know it, I can't rep you.

Thanks guys!

If that's the "light aspect", well I didn't want to go with something that could be distracting since the map isn't that big. On small sizes, that could overwhelm the map.

Oh really? :D :D

Great stuff. I don't usually find house maps as interesting as regional or city maps, but this one I really like :) The border fits nicely imo, doesn't distract, just gives a subtle framing and focus.

Very nice! You're a talented cartoonist. I love your bags, very easy to recognize (and probably because I wouldn't have known how to draw this :)).

Colors are excellent and well balanced, as always. I think the border is here to give the feeling that the map is part of a book, right?

Thanks much Ilanthar

Kind of, the RPG book has some paper texture with faded frames similar to this.

oh that explains it... i think i was trying to look at the paper/parchment/border as part of a book, and I was looking at the map as like ... a game *board*..


(I DID tell you I see things funny... :blush: )

Really, when you see this map, you're thinking "gameboard"? :D

Excellent map Max.

Yes. Sort of. (words mean what I want them to mean!)


I picture laying it out on the table and moving things around in it... is that wrong? D:

I can almost see it with slight ridges where the walls and objects are so that my toy-people have to move around them.

Everything *outside* the building, I see in a book form ... :?

Ya'll have no idea how weird I see things...

I'm starting to see that ;) Anyway the brewery is one of element of the central plot in the book's setting.
