    Twas a joke. -cracks knuckles- These hands were made for the tedium of drawing redundant lines.

    I tried using a directional comb brush but no matter how much I fiddled with the settings it did not look right. I'm just doing it THE TRADITIONAL WAY.

    Scroll is a placeholder... Thinking about what the building, landform, foliage, and ship icons should look like... eh... this is why I started with the ocean.

    Oh dear. This might take a while... but progress is progress!

    I messed up a few times, but eventually figured out a way to make it look all nice n stuff.

    Applied a little mask to make it look textured/aged just to test. Looks pretty badass, imo.

    Thicker lines look better so I'm going to have to go over the thinner ones once more... at least in some areas.

    Oh... and made a little doodle of the colony fort for scale. I am anticipating drawing those along with landforms, foliage, and such will be even more of a pain in the butt (but at least it'll be less repetitive...?)

    ONWAAAAAAAAAARD~!

    EDIT: I think I might just update this post with further WIPs until I move on to something that isn't water since I can't imagine it's very exciting to see more than once...

    This map is going to be amazing, even if just because of those Fra Mauro oceans. About time someone tackled that particular style.

    If anyone's been wondering where I've gone off to... I'm really sick. I just got some medication a few days ago to help cope with symptoms and it's been kicking me in the teeth as I try to get used to it. I haven't had much energy or motivation to work on the map but when I feel better I will get back to it.

    I'm almost halfway done with the oceans (I've really only done two days worth of work since the last update). After that, I'll try to emulate the Fra Mauro mountains and landforms. They look to be drawn/painted with ink washes and I have a few ink brushes that will work perfectly. After that, I'll do some research on castles and fortresses to draw "icons" of cities and villages. Then boats and ships. Then sea monsters and animals. Yadda, yadda. Long list.

    Till then...

    Well... I was right when I said this would take a while. Because of a tightly packed schedule, progress has been delayed and I still have a little bit more to go on the water. But looking at it now, I'm happy I've spent this much time on it. Right now, it's become a monotonous endurance test so I think I'll take a short break from this to draw something else. I'll get back to it as soon as I relieve my desire to work on a new drawing.

    It looks great so far, one thing tho. On the center vertical fold line the top(At the water's edge) isn't quite lined up.
