    Wip Tomb of the Earthlich

    A short adventure that I'm developing for pdf publication, its meant to be a 'one-shot' (D&D 3.5... so far) that I may end up designing a series over. but this is the initial map (taken by digital cam cause the scanner isn't big enough)

    I kept it at 100% for detail.
    It was inked using Kohinoor rapidograph pens (.13, .18, .25, .30) this may or may not be the final render .... depending on how bad I mess this one up depends on whether or not i'll be drawing it again.

    Really nice feel, delgon. Is the paper blue or is that a digital camera effect. I really like the hatching.

    wow... it didn't look blue when I cropped and edited them ... but now I can see how blue they really look... wierd, it's the same paper that I mapped the lighthouse and its white...

    I think... my overhead desk light which is one of those newer ones that have a flourescent bulb that hints a blue (supposed to be better for the eyes and brighter than standard bulbs... you know the ones ...)

    You wouldn't like the hatching after you finish one by hand on a map that size... but, it looks great so the pain and long effort pay off ... thus I soldier on, plodding through hatch after hatch after hatch
    Thanks for the compliment

    If you intend to use a camera as a copy stand, make use of the custom WB setting in the camera. Set it against a blank sheet of paper. Should be good to go! (oh yeah, and don't use the flash, light from both sides...)

    Jaerdaph -- Thank you .. you compliments bring warm feelings to my heart.

    Rob -- Great advice. Now for my next act.... This is my first digital camera.. I actually bought it for my wife for xmas, ( i got tired of seeing roll after roll of undeveloped film building up in the top drawer of the dresser!) I've scanned the user manual... and I'm pretty dumb about this d.camera but I did find that WB is White Balance ... and AWB is auto ... so, i've figured out how to get into the manual adjust to set it ... and I'm to set it while pointing it at a blank sheet of paper ? .. yes... hopefully I can get this down so that I can get another snapshot ... please bare with my digital cam ignorance

    Don -- My hands are grateful for your thanks and your sympathy... and so am I we do what we must in the name of great mapping, right?
