    Wip Daimaru Islands

    I've been working on this map for a little bit for an upcoming L5R campaign while taking a break from another. Also just playing around with style and colours. I don't want it to look too precise but I'm not too keen on the sea so far. I might make it a much stronger blue around the land masses. Also the line work is currently brown in colour set to linear burn. Not too sure about that either.

    Actually, I'm not really sure about any of it, but it's fun to play with.

    I think it looks pretty good so far.

    I like the hand-drawn look & style. The forests and mountains are nicely done but I think the grass looks a bit too plain. It's being a flat color stands in contrast to the sea. It might look better with some texture on it.

    I think it's pretty cool - no suggestions from me, man.

    I started again from scratch as I've started using Paint Tool SAI a lot and I find it is far far superior to both Photoshop and Sketchbook when it comes to linework. Which I've just finished. Now to colour it!
