    Love the "D&D 1st ed" feel of it! The hatching is nice, as is the feel of the "hex paper." Thanks for posting this!

    Map

    hey folks!

    well, after a week of nothing, i present to you a series of hand drawn maps that i've been working on the past few days. i found some old graph paper, did some maps with a sharpie pen only and this is what i came up with. just doodles, without any plan. testing out the crosshatching thing. (hellhound, this is not to copy your style, though i must admit to you giving me inspiration for this type of map. old school hand drawn is becoming more and more appealing of late. i just wanted to let you know i wasn't trying to copy you or anything.)

    anyway, here's the first. i'll try to post a few others maybe this evening after work. have fun. yoink it if you want.

    Map

    here's another map i had a few minutes and decided to play around. basic, i know, but it works. i'll post the other levels in a couple of days. this was originally the Keep of the Crimson Despot that i was going to do last week. that being said, maybe this will be it. gonna have to label it a bit though.

    oh and i just changed the compass rose because i like the spearmen and it kind of goes with this map. hope you don't mind...

    I love them. Especially the keep.

    Something about hand-drawn maps that screams "D&D!" to me.

    Agreed, and I'm tickled pink that we're starting to see more of those on this site! I may have to go scan some of my old hand drawn maps.

    thanks guys. i'm an old school DnDer, and with the advent of 4th ed, and a new play style perhaps, i think most of my maps will be hand drawn, as an homage to my earlier work. BTW, i just found a bunch of old campaign maps and dungeons from my 1e days. i may start a new thread just to show you some of my work. might take a few days, as some of them are in pretty bad shape. 20 years in a notebook tends to do that.

    Post Influences and inspiration....

    Nice work with the handdrawn and crosshatched maps Terrainmonkey, I hope we see more As for copying Hellhound, I do vaguely recall some cliche involving imitation and sincerity......

    One of the things I like about a new messageboard is when it gets enough users who care about the subject at hand and post enough that they start egging each other on and inspiring each other. Cartographersguild has not been around for long, but I'm pleased with how its growing.

    Map

    hey guys, glad you like them.

    here's a few more. kind of to make up for the fact i haven't posted as i said i would. here's the rest of the keep. 2nd level, 3rd and 4th level of the keep, and the dungeon level. use it as you will.

    also, if anyone has anything they would like to see here, let me know. i'm always up to the task of trying new ideas. i know mine can become a little stale here and there.
