    Map My first attempt - Scales Forest's map

    Hi!

    This the first map I completed. This is a player's version, it doesn't show spots of interest. The complete version is still in progress, so I'll show later.

    What do you think about it? Comments are welcome!

    Very nice, I wish my first attempt looked even remotely like this. Only thing I'm less enthused about are the hills.

    I'm with Tilt, very Forgotten Realms-esque.

    Isn't it Schley who does the FR maps? Nonetheless, this is nice and reminiscent of that style. Good job.

    Thanks guys.

    Actually, I'm really inspired by the maps of Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance of 3E. I think this kind of map is the most accurate for me, because the top view of mountains and hills. If I draw them in other way, it looks like is missing something behind. Also, I'm big fan of Rob Lazzaretti and Schley, so my maps look like their naturally. But I really would like to draw a map with "pencils + digital colors technique", like Cary Nord's drawings in Dark Horse Conan comics, you know? I think that gives a great mood to the maps.

    What do you think I could do to improve the hills?

    And about the ground? I miss some texture, don't you?

    This looks excellent! How do you make those very beautiful mountains and woods! Is this hand drawn?
