    Default PANORICA - Final Days of Crevan Brokenhand

    Here is the finished version of the map that I will handle to my players so they can, in the end, find the Final Rest of Crevan Brokenhand.

    Overall I like the map, particularly the 3/4 view. However I would suggest making the rivers and lakes black to match the ink-pen feel of the map, and trying to make the blood splats look a bit more natural (e.g. play around with the layer modes a bit). Otherwise, nice job.

    Cheers,

    Thank you for the suggestions and kind words . I have tryed to use black on the water but the result was terrible IMO, as was the red and the hollow lakes, but I will try again. I have made some changes based on the feed on ProFantasy forum but will wait a little more to repost the results. Basically I darkened the red and blue, deleted the shadow effect on the text and put the white glow on the text a little less strong. I am thinking in using a transparent effect on the blood/ink marks, but have not toyed with it.

    For the lakes, maybe go with the concentric-lines method of showing water? I'm blanking on linking to an example here at the Guild at the moment, but it's a good woodcut-style method of doing coastlines.

    For the blood, remember that real blood dries very dark reddish-brown, it doesn't stay vivid red for long.

    I've been playing around with a similar map style and ended up with similar colors, but I think that a range of browns and potentially greys would look more natural. I totally did what you did here (it looks great by the way), but concluded that my colors (on brown) looked odd.

    I really am a big fan of these types of maps. They convey information and tell a story. I think it looks very good but perhaps the blood droplets are a little too regular. You could try blending out the edges and making them a bit darker in the center. Great work !!

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
