    Not much of an update here from the last one as I'm really kinda struggling with this. This is actually my first non-commission map that isn't to do with the world I created for my story over many years and as such I've found it hard to get in the right mindset to think of towns, cities etc. and where they should go.
    I started to draw some in a perspective style but after drawing a tower I'd sit back and stare at it for an hour and wonder where to go next. So to help alleviate that problem I whipped up some quick 2d icons and was able to place them much quicker. These red icons are only temporary, and I do intend to replace them all with perspective markers similar to the few I've done in the SW of the island. I do quite like the look of them though and I think I'll probably use this style on another map.

    Not much else to report I guess... added an extract from a poem. Roughed in a few cliffs in one position as a test. Umm... the two labels I added are not final btw, feel free to discount them at your leisure.

    Anyhoo... here's where I'm at now...

    They look pretty cool I think. Reminds me of the old Risk plastic tokens for armies.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    This looks like a real piece of artwork. Love this one and love the WIP you've been posting. Like everyone else, I'm blown away by those waves.

    hmmm... looks like I forgot to turn to page 2 *lol* ... love the 3D city icons (the 2D are fun too) - and the poem and the colored icons helps a lot on the title - it doesn't dominate as much

    Looking forward to seeing more of this Ramah.... I love the ISOish town icons you have going on. You should consider a swamp in there somewhere, personally, I like the area below the large lake... then the castle would be..... "Swamp Castle".... heh....
