    Blaidd Drwg's city of Val Nevan (modelled on traditional 17th Century 'bird's eye' view maps) uses both natural media and Digital painting to best effect. The line art was done traditionally using micron pens, scanned and coloured in photoshop.

The details like the writing and the coats of arms were done digitally, but to preserve the hand-made look, I printed them out, traced them, and scanned them again. I used a stock image for the aged-paper background
