    Turgenev,

    I like the reef, but I wonder if it isn't to dark? Not sure, seems to me to clash a little bit with the rest.

    I think the compass is fine, if anything maybe tone down the yellow in it a bit.

    The reef is completely submerged so I was going for a darker ring around the island. But with that said, I thought I would try for something different and so I did (see latest attached pic).

    That's exactly what I was thinking of doing. BTW, the compass is a public domain image so I attached it as well in case people wanted to use it for their own maps.

    Here's the island map with noted areas marked (click to enlarge).



    A. Lagoon (Attack Kelp lair)
    B. Cave Entrance #1
    C. Cave Entrance #2
    D. Cave Entrance #3
    E. Small Temple (dedicated to Zeus)
    F. Rock Outcrop (Birds of Ares nests)
    G. Hidden Entrance to Cave #11 (see below)
    H. Monster Lair (manticore?)

    Here's the map that details the island's caves (click to enlarge). Cavern #4 has access to the surrounding sea (via an underground passage not visible at sea level). Cavern #6 has a pit that leads deeper into the earth.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    I like the combination of underground and above ground mapping. Not to mention it is aesthetically pleasing

    Thanks Sirith. I had a lot of fun making this map. I still need to do the lower caverns but work has kept me pretty busy lately.

    Great maps there. I love that pen inky cartoony kind of art that you get on real printed stuff.
