I don't mind this cartoonish feel, this is interesting. And I think that "curved" style drawing gives that cartoonish touch as more as the digital coloring.
This is a small tomb I made when my rpg groups GM diden't show up and everyone still wanted to play.
The background was just a small tomb that was the resting place of a former lich king.
The tomb is poorly made as he made he undead minions dig it out.
I am currently remaking it on my computer, but it still have some way to go.
So far I actually like the hand drawn more my self. The colorised computer version is sorta.. cartonish looking.
But I am still working on it.
Interesting, but kind of impractical.
Nice work for an off the cuff quick map. Perfect size for a quick one night game. Only criticism is the computer version is to dark. It does give it a good scary feel, but to hard to see details. Keep in mind that something about this forum site makes dark maps even darker when you post them here.

Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

Wonderful job on this! I really like the style and the skewed, flowing design. Makes it very interesting and visually appealing. And I love the uneven walls (thick/thin)!
Personally, I prefer the darker version in the first post. Yes, it's quite dark, but it gives it a wonderful, creepy atmosphere. And the way my monitor is calibrated, I can still see all the details perfectly fine. Maybe when it's all done, you could offer two versions...one dark and one bright.
Thanks for all the replies. I must admit that I had completly forgotten about this one. I might return to it one day and offer up a lighter version But Mark Oliva's version functions ok for showing the details for know.
