A base pass of highlighting done. NOW I can start adding details :) I'll send along a 100% shot of the map to show you how rough it is in full zoom :)
Those rocks are gorgeous! Great stuff. And 100% done by hand?
It looks very good and detailed - authentic and, as others have said, well-shaded. However, hand shading is quite the labour of love, no? I've always found it almost ... devotional ... in the patience and zen-like flow state it requires.
A bit of an update here. I'd say this map is about 80% done :)
Yes, I think this is done now! What do you guys think?
Good to see you back, Sandman!
