    Default The world of Hominia

    The world of Hominia-finalcompressed.jpg

    It’s been a while since I posted any work, so here’s a piece I did for Noah Murphy for his book series K23 Detectives. You can check them out on Kindle (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005G5YN98/) and in print (https://www.createspace.com/3711488).

    It was an interesting challenge getting a black and white map to read clearly for the different Kindle formats - there are a couple of versions of this map with different labeling to take account of the different formats.

    Looks great for the constraints you had to work in, I can hardly imagine the difficulty of wrestling around with the formatting. Though maybe it's juvenile of me but I couldn't help but snicker when I noticed a city named Brocenback placed in the mountains.

    Very nice! The pen strokes give it a very elegant style. I find the steppes and the mountains particularly effective.

    Great job Torstan! I like the mountains and hills most. How did you find creating a kindle version to be?

    On a side point, I'm a little stunned looking at the prices of the book. Kindle is like 2.99 and a paperback is 21.99? That's amazing. Lately it seems the kindle versions cost as much or more than the paper ones. So far as I can determine there is little rhyme or reason to how kindle books are priced.
