Midcyru-Night Angel Map W/ new map
I've been reading Brent Weeks Night Angel trilogy.http://www.brentweeks.com/ It's one of the best stories I've come across. The characters are so deep, and in ways you would not expect. I had just started the second book when I decided to contact Brent.
Being an artist, I've always been fascinated by the maps that accompany so many fantasy books. Sometimes I'll buy a used book just because I like the map. The thought came to me to redo the map of Midcyru, but I didn't want to offend the author Brent. I asked permission to use the maps for my portfolio and post them on my favorite forum, Cartographer's Guild. He responded quickly, and said he'd love to see what I come up with.
Some of the difficulties in redoing a map is the limitations. All of the facts are laid down already, which means I don't get to create as much. But this could also be seen as easier.
The first map is the original. The second and third are the alternative maps done by me. I tried to stay as close to the original as possible.
