May 2012 Entry: Untitled Fantasy Continent
This is my first go at a challenge, but since most of my mapping is done by hand I figured it would be a decent one to get involved in. So I've got my first draft here in my sketchbook, took a lot of time practicing the mountains. I plan on the finished map being ink and watercolor.

Ok, I've got it to full-size now, which allowed me to add much more detail than in the smaller sketch. Even though the mountains seem like a big hit I don't feel like that style is going to work with what I have planned for this piece. I'm going to shift to the method where the range has a continuous ridge line. I feel that this will give a better impression of the scale of the area (it is much smaller than it looks when the range is represented by individual mountains.)
