    A bit too nice... It discourage me to even try doing something like that! ... I couldn't say enough how much I like those maps!

    Lovely maps, Mike. And thanks for sharing a bit of your workflow. Any time you feel like sharing more then I'm sure there would be many around here eager to hear it.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys!

    Here's a trick to using brush stamps while avoiding that repetitive look. Only stamp the inks and occasionally flip them on their x & y axis. You can also add or remove a few details. That way, when you're applying color to the individual objects there will be enough randomness that they won't looked stamped. If you paint your light and cast shadows separately, rather than stamping them, it will help with the illusion. This way you can turn the ink drawing of a single building into dozens of unique map elements. Saves a LOT of routine drawing time that could be spent more productively.

    I like the little brush fires in the east there, I've been trying to figure out a way to do forest fires that wasn't kitschy. Great stuff, man. Must have taken a long time even with stamp brushes.

    Outstanding work as always. I agree with Moe - a book is what we need.

    Your maps are the reason I am now learning to do mapping of my own. Keep up the amazing work.

    Amazing. Can't wait to use these in a campaign! The closeup of the "Protectors enclave" will be very handy.

    I'll simply echo, if you post more specifics or maps, I'll be back to read and view them.

    Thank you!
