Winter's Reach: a rough map.
About a week ago a guildmember posted a link to a Youtube video where a cartographer drew a quick map while talking about the beauty of fantasy mapping. The video inspired me to draw a map completely from scratch, without having general idea or motive, and not stop to look back and rework or change anything. To allow my fantasy to rule my pen throughout the process, and create a constant creative flow.
40 minutes later I had finished a hand-drawn sketch, that after two hours of digital coloring and labeling, became this somewhat rough, yet decent finished map. I could continue working and polishing this for hours, nitpicking as I am. But, that would defeat the purpose of the whole concept. What do you fellow Cartographers think? Seeing that this is only my second map feedback is much appreciated. Cheers! :)
