    Wip June 2012 Entry: The wretched Realms

    Hi,

    here is now my take on the theme of the wretched Realms, a counterpart to the classical arcadian idylls.
    In my challenge entry, I want to depict different styles of hostile enviroment, some connected to the nine hells, others to certain climate phenomenas, all enclosed into an extreme enviroment.
    More to it later.

    very nice. the features look very similar to those of your Arden map. are they brushes or a file/layer you copy&paste from?

    I want to try render this map in a more painterly style. I hope that will work.
    Also I do have the feeling thats not possible for me to surprised anyone anymore. Perhaps my maps looks to similar through my personal "Handdrawn" style?

    It is definitely a beautiful style, Schwarzcross - but a large measure of what could change it would be if you tried using some more colours, or different colour inks ... or different fonts. But even as a single style, it is very impressive.

    Are those Saguaro cactus' in there? I live where those are!

    It looks beautiful just as it is. I think you need to prove how extreme the environment is though. It's 106 degrees F outside right now
