    I like the style. When we talk hand drawn here are we talking a cg hand drawn or a literal sketch and then scanned? V

    Its HAnddrawn and than scanned than put into composition. You can see it easily on the linework, there is a small thicker point at the end of his shading, which indicates a pen with liquid overflow is used on the drawing. I am using a Pilot-G 0.3 mm Gel pen to avoid thoses dots. Soon I wil get a 0.25 Nanotech Pen, the most thin pen with liquid ball tip in the world! I hope i wont break it, must be sensitive.

    Schwarzkreuz can you not also create that thicker end linework with a tablet? Don't know just asking. Then what has happened here is that we created a hand drawn stylized mountain symbol, digitized it, created a brush to paint in the correct scale? V

    Its nearly impossible to get those inked feeling from digital only drawings. Those irregularies are what makes such a map vivid and "alive". To mimic that in PS only is beyond my skills. Well but its a queston of taste.

    And yes, we do it that way.

    I've never been able to master that in Photoshop either. In the Pen department, I use the Pilot Hi-TEC C, although I'm using a 0.4, which probably results in the 'blobbing' at the end of the strokes. I keep destroying the 0.25 Pilots, they break easily, and I press too hard. I cleaned up some of the blobbies in photoshop, but not too many since I feel they add a bit to the 'natural' look I was going for.
