    Default [WIP] Commission - Xendria

    This is a Work in Progress for my latest Commission, the Realm of Xendria. It is the setting for the Graphic Short Story "Through the Eyes of Grizelda". I've hand drawn a bunch of symbols for the map in pen and ink and I'm just waiting on my new scanner to arrive.

    Anyways, here's my early progress. As usual, any comments/criticism are much appreciated.

    The pentagram in the VAST OCEAN is a wonderful touch!

    I really like the shape, texture, and colour.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

    Hi, I'm new here. I love your basics for your map! It reminds me a little of The Land Of Morthyr which is one of my top five favorites that I've seen so far. I had no idea there was a site like this, with so much talent!

    I'm in the process of scanning in about 200 various symbols drawn in pen and ink. This is a pretty tedious process but I'm pretty happy with the look so far. I think they'll look better then what I could've done with the tablet.

    I started laying some symbols down this morning...just a few to get a feel how they'll look on the map.
