Man that map has a lovely feel to it. Lovely work, Torstan!
I think I have just been inspired to purchase a graphics tablet. It's incredible to see a map like this from start to finish, awesome job.

Not quite finished yet, but almost there now. Definitely will be done in time for Friday's game.
If you are after a graphics tablet, a little A6 Wacom was big enough for me. It fits in my laptop bag and I never use the A4 Nisis I have sitting at home anymore.
Thanks! That's enormously kind. I'll try to get this finished tonight. It's been interesting working out more of a consistent style with my tablet. I'm liking the result so far, but I think I may well still play around with the opacity of the colours when I've finished the detailing.
For being "nominal" it is definitely a thing of beauty. I would even go so far as to say that is better than a lot of the "professional" encounter maps I've seen. Your players better give you some serious kudos for that. In fact, that would be worth getting printed and framed and putting up in the game room. Those colors are just awesome.
