    Default August/September challenge entry - Liranifer's Aerial Chinampas

    For my garden I chose to pursue creating a magical garden. I wondered how a wizard would go about collecting and protecting the various exotic and dangerous floral components of their craft. And this is what I came up with. I've begun inking it, but here is the WIP. I've still to work out the various details that'll make it feel more "map-like".

    I like the idea very much and the sketch is promising.

    Reminds me somewhat of the Chocobo's Air Garden in Final Fantasy IX. You've not got long to make a map mind you!

    Pretty cool idea, I'd probably set things up that way myself.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    And here is it is inked. I still have to add in additional elements to make it feel more like a map.

    All done! I could probably spend several more hours fiddling with aging the look of it. I apologize about the illegible text. The wizard that made this map, apparently, has horrible handwriting.
