I'm in the process of converting the old AD&D Module 'Dungeonland' over to 4e for my campaign. I just finished 'The Tiny Garden' and thought I would share it with you folks. I'm using CC3 as my cartography application. Any comments are welcome.

Nice first map post! You ought to introduce yourself in the New Member Intro Forum.

Gave you some REP, for posting a map in your first post!

Looks like you are comfortable using CC3, though, and a nice one at that. You might have saved that as a larger map, so we could see some more detail. Interesting title font, though its almost unreadable...

Welcome aboard!

Repped!

I think it's a beautiful, crisp map. And I have to agree with Gamerprinter, you obviously are comfortable with CC3. I would be interested in a higher resolution version also.

Thanks folks. I've been working with CC3 for a couple of years now, so I feel I know my way around it all right. I've also been a long time lurker on this site, although I've haven't been around much lately. I did post a city map of Everlund a while back, but it was sometime ago. Seems like the site has gone through some changes since then.

The Title Font I used for the map is called Mutlu, a TT caligraphy font I found free online. In trying to keep with theme of a formal english garden, I thought this might work, but I thought that it was almost unreadable also. Any suggestions would be helpful with this.

This map will be used on MT, so when I get the player's version going I'll post a higher resolution map for you folks to check out.

LOL, I just read the sticky for this thread. This may not be the appropriate place for my post. If there's a more appropriate place for my map please move. This map is still in the works and I'm just looking for some advice on making it look better.

Very nice...

I did a conversion of the Chateau d'Amberville maps a while back. Though I did them in Photoshop

I moved it to the appropriate forum section... Once you have a completed work, feel free to post up in the finished maps forum

Here's the battle map. Its at a higher resolution so hopefully you will be able to see some of the maps details.

One thing I'm not sure if I like is the red rock on either side of the free standing wall. I want it to be a flower banked grotto, with rocks jutting from the ground, forming a backdrop for a tiny waterfall that fills a shallow basin in which lotus grow. Does anyone know any tricks that can be employed in CC3 to make this look more like rock jutting from the ground? and everything I tried to make a tiny waterfall just looks horrible, any suggestions here?
