Oooh, I want bonus points. Hokusai?
In a cave overlooking the sea a band of savage sea <fill in your creature of choice> thrive, protecting their treasure and their secrets.
Anyways - played with this one this afternoon. Any comments, suggestions?
Bonus points if you know where some of the textures from the crashing waves came from.
Lol, beaten to the punch, Hokusai and Hiroshige are among my favourite artists. Not too many comments and suggestions - the rocks in the sea are coloured differently to your ground texture in the dungeon - I wonder if they should be the same?
I really do like the texture you've used for the undergrowth. I'm intrigued by the large orange rectangle top left, what is it meant to be?
To give the impression that the cave is elevated high above the sea you might want to draw a cliff face? (not sure how high the cave is meant to be).
Yep, pretty map. I actually have one of those wave pictures on the wall of the room I'm working in at the moment!
I like the clour scheme and the overall feel of the map a lot. The objects (dunjinni?) jar a little with the otherwise quite hand-drawn look of the map. Don't know how easy that would be to change.
Yeah, I struggled with this - since it's top down, you wouldn't see a cliff face unless the base of the cliff is broader than the top. Maybe I should revisit that...To give the impression that the cave is elevated high above the sea you might want to draw a cliff face? (not sure how high the cave is meant to be).
You could 'cheat' and just use a drop shadow to imply height...what software are you using to draw your map?
Very pretty map. Good job sir!
