    Map Tomb map and some map elements

    I hadn't done an underground/ dungeon map for a really long time but I always used to love drawing them. So after doing the Ruins map just a few weeks ago I decided to draw this one. I am still thinking about this one - I had originally wanted to combine it with a front on drawing of the cairn from the outside and a few views of the inside of the tomb and surround it with an appropriate border but.... time and all.

    This is the tomb of Hurath the Bold, who died defending Cormegof from the ravaging invaders from the Sienpag empire to the east. Laid to rest along side him are his six most loyal friends and allies. To the top right is the small pool where the heroes bodies were washed and prepared for burial.

    And here are some map elements that I was working on. I thought I would try to build up a bit of a library on the premise that it would speed things up. I haven't tried them out yet. I have a feeling it won't work as planned. I tend to work off of drawings and sketches so map elements may not be my thing. But I thought I'd post them anyways. Enjoy.

    Beautiful!

    Every so often I get the urge to start sketching little trees and mountains in various styles... I even did use some on a map, once. They were difficult to place because none of them were exactly the shape I would have chosen to draw in that spot, and I ended up finishing the second half just freehand. But it's not a bad form of practicing various style ideas.

    Chashio, I'm pretty much with you on that. I tried using the trees. I can put together a nice stand of trees but it never really what I'm after. Same problem - always need something slightly different than the premade ones I made.
    I guess, if for nothing else, it's a helpful visual style guide.
