    Thanks Gidde I think I'm still going to try adding some watercolour-ish looking stuff to that sea. It's decent but still needs some work. Trying to get inspiration for Fungoids by googling for fungus pictures was mostly a fail, so I'm going to go look through those handy dandy monster manuals for inspiration instead

    Trying looking at the myconid, or just doing a Google image search for it.

    Thanks Pindercarl I came across those guys, and just looking at the pictures was enough to inspire me for quite a few baddies. Just have to think along the lines of what happens when fungus goes wrong?

    Started off by drawing the humanoid-like fungi first. The first is a dwarf who has inhaled fungoid spores. The spores kill him and then control the body from inside, while feeding on it as well. The naked obese man (never thought I would draw that for this map!!) is the next stage of the infected dwarf. The spores have grown much larger inside, so that the host body can barely contain it anymore. At the end of that stage, the body finally bursts and the mature fungoid emerges to terrorize even more dwarves (the emergent fungoid hasn't been drawn yet). The third humanoid is a fungoid that was purposefully evolved, with the goal of being able to use dwarven weapons against the dwarves.

    Still to be drawn are two quadruped fungoids, as well as the basic worker drone fungoid - who is the main source of the inhalable spores.

    Might have to shrink the pictures a little bit, not much room for them at the moment

    I agree; this is truly cool.

    Awesome !!

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Thanks guys The illustrations are slowing me down, but they're almost done now. I figure I'm on track to get everything finished with about 3 seconds to spare
