    Default The Realms of Xendria

    This is the finished map that will be featured in the short comic "Through the Eyes of Grizelda". I'm really happy with how the symbols came out. It was really fun breaking out the old fashioned ink pen and hand drawing the mountains and other symbols. As always, thanks to everyone for your input while the the map was a WIP.

    Beautiful work. That must have taken some patience! I love the muted colour palette.

    Yes! This is a fine map. A good combination of simple and complicated. The mountain ranges are well done and the time you put into making this is obvious.

    Wow, nicely done! I agree, the soft muted tones are very attractive.

    That is awesome cereth. I like they way you did the deserts using the dots for texture too.

    Beautiful work. I love everything about this map, come to think of it.

    How did you create the 'desert dots'? Did you individually place each dot, or is that some kind of texture? If it's a texture, any chance you'd be willing to share it?

    A wonderful map! Very well done! I like how you used a combination of dots and illustrations to represent towns and other places.

    The dots are a seamless texture I made...I'll be sure to share it. I'll also make a brush pack from the mountains as soon as I can get around to it.

    Thanks for the compliments.
