    Default Apri 2013l Challenge Entry: Eshtannakuth

    This is a recent fortress I started. I forgot what the name of it means - probably Hated-Yam or something.

    Anyway, the expedition leader is Oddom Idlek, she leads The Healing Mines, and like most dwarves, she needs alcohol to make it through the working day!

    I'm not the most proficient at the game and I prefer more organic layouts too.

    I have not done the ### tag thing because I'm attaching my reference image too. But I have only started the line art.

    Well I have started working on this again. Had a pile of family stuff to deal with. I'll probably end up rushing it at the last minute but I shall try and finish it.

    I have put in the basic colours. Just need to finish the colouring and then add some labeling.

    Cool! I'm glad you're going to keep working on this. (And I hope your family is well.)

    I really love the originality in the idea, as well as the execution. I should have a map like that for all my fortresses, it looks really gorgeous!

    I hope everything is alright at home.

    Had to rush this to get it finished so I didn't get to spend nearly enough time on it or find a more appropriate font. I sorta like Faery Dust though. But this will have to do.

    I dunno, I think the font works great. And hey, you've probably got at least 12 or 15 hours more to work on it...
