    What's the point of this? Doing fast maps or see how much time you spend on the different elements?

    The later. I wat to see how fast my workflow is, and see where I struggle. I am doing this kind of exercise with drawing and painting too.

    It helps me reflect on my skills, and to see more clear what comes naturally in a good flow and what not.

    That makes sense. If it's not for doing fast maps, I'd say, besides the repetitive look, that the outlines of the hills doesn't look very clean.

    Indeed, spend most of hour no. 2 for the mountains, which are much cleaner. This was a direct result of the first hour to see how I can sketchup the elements clean.

    Well here are the mountains for the Map, involving a masking for clone-stamp style.

    Took me nearly an hour. Whats taking the longest time here is the Masking.

    Looks fantastic for such a fast job – I just spent two hours on nothing but coastlines. Really nice mountains.

    Your maps have been very inspirational to me too, by the way.
