I really like this series of maps. What kind of pen do you use? And do you draw it in pencil first?
I sketch out the shapes in pencil - city shape, main road, roughly where I want forestry or rivers etc, but I dive straight into the details using ink pens: (Copic Multiliner's SP: http://store.copicmarker.com/pages/o...-multiliner-sp) It's kinda hairy at times, because mistakes are mistakes and there isn't a lot you can do about it.
Yeah, that's a bit brave for me--but your results are really nice.
I was inspired enough that I stopped by the art-supply store yesterday and got a range of pencils and a small sketchpad to practice with. I think I'll stick with pencil for a while yet.
That's awesome! I should post a blow-by-blow, because ink or pencil, atleast it would give you a sense of my process.
