I've been stuck on the 'Krull' soundtrack, for awhile. There's just something about that movie, man... I wanted this map to be a representation of a very whimsical place, to carry an atmosphere of classic adventure and gaming. That is usually the look I am going for in my maps and art. Also the reason I use traditional materials. I love the ambiance of gaming from the 8o's through the early nineties. I strive to capture that 'light' feeling of adventure and questing. But it's not always about 'light'. There is darkness. I guess, the easiest way to sum it up is: epic adventuring. I like the Tolkien-style high fantasy created by him and his contemporaries, like E.R. Eddison and (cringe) C.S. Lewis. This world is a place where the geography doesn't quite make sense. But that is okay. I was striving for something whimsical. Any feedback is welcome.
