This challenge seems like a great way to refresh and improve on my linework for ISO dungeon maps :) Not much time left, but today I had time to work on this. Not too much ideas behind it: going down into some hellish cave...

It's nice, but I do like some of your other work a lot more.

Weirdly though the first thing that struck me was how similar the layout was to Arsheesh' "Into the Lycan Den" (http://www.cartographersguild.com/attachments/mapping-challenge-archive/62664d1395932198-march-2014-entry-into-lycans-den-into-lycans-den.jpg) from last months challenge :D At least to me anyway.

Still a nice entry.

thanks guys, indeed it looks a little like the lycans denn (but I didn't plan to put so much text in ;). And Max, I agree on the colors, I was switching between more cartoonish and more 'dark', but dark will be better indeed for this. Unfortunately I cannot finish this. I wanted to finish it before moving but I didn't so this is the endstation for me for this month challenge, Hope to finish it later though :( cheers!

Too bad you won't be able to finish it on the deadline, but I think it looks awesome as it is. The happy colors are nice contrast to the theme, imho :)
