    Wow. This is truly amazing! I love a good iso map, and this is a great one. I have to admit, my favorite part is that you can follow the water from where it enters to cavern to where it exits, and how the waterfall's used to help illustrate the height difference between the two levels.

    If you tell them, I won't stop you

    @Loogie: Thanks! It really was the tablet that made all the difference with my map drawing.

    @Novarri: Thanks - that's actually inspired by an old AD&D book. It was one of the blue books and it detailed dungeons? Anyway there was an isometric cave complex in it with a waterfall going through the caves and you could really se how it had hollowed out the cave system over time. The waterfall did a great job of connecting the different levels. I like it here because it gives the players two different ways to attack the bandit's lair.

    @Ravells: Thanks. I had a lot of fun nailing down this style and you'll certainly be seeing more of these in the future. As for how I got into this, I guess there were a couple of big things that made it possible. First: try living on a small academic salary in NYC. Fail. Second: turn to hobbies to make extra cash. Necessity really is the mother of invention. It might be worth a tutorial on getting your work seen and picking up commissions? I certainly don't claim to be any sort of expert on this, but I am now picking up a steady and predictable income from this.

    That's because your stuff rocks, sure some of the more ambitious people can get out there and sell sell sell but if you don't have the portfolio to back it up then it's all for naught. Continued good luck to you my friend.

    This is a beautiful map. The ISO perspective is fantastic and like another commentor already mentioned, the fact that you can trace the water through the caverns is really great. I plan on using this in an upcoming adventure--needed a "lair" and this will be perfect!

    Cheers.

    Nice to see this one turn up again. Thanks all for the compliments. It was a lot of fun to do. I'm very pleasantly surprised to find my map in Djekspeak's inspiration folder!
