    Wip Fierick - WIP Hand-drawn

    I figured I'd try my hand at a hand-drawn, what with my being without internet for a week (on vacation).

    Here's a camera shot of the drawing before I started coloring it. I hope to get my scanner up and running sometime soon, will scan the colorized version.

    Cropped and adjusted for contrast in Gimp, rest is whatever pencil I could snag from the kids

    That's looking pretty good! You draw some nice trees.
    What's the blocks to the southwest supposed to represent?

    Thanks! Inspired by the Zombie Nirvana tutes. (The trees, I mean)

    The blocks were supposed to be plateaued cliffs, I guess. My sister suggested it, and I figured I could try it out, it being a practice piece anyway. I guess it'd be something like this.

    The plateaued cliffs would probably be more clear if you looked at them isometrically, and added circles/squares/whatever on top.

    Looks great overall. I particularly like the way you let just a few hills peek from behind the mountains they surround.

    Looks good so far.

    Can't wait to see how it evolves

    That has a nice, classic handdrawn look to it. Good luck with further work on this map!

    Wip

    Here's the hand-colored version, scanned. I'm not sure the scanner is working at full power, I had a power supply that matches in volts, but not quite in ampere.

    I had to adjust brightness/contrast a lot in gimp.

    That's pretty oldskool! Nice.
    Why did you decide to give the land a yellow color? Not saying I don't like it, but would have expected green

    Nice stuff! The coloring is awesome

    Would you mind if I tried to make this as a project?

    @Gandwarf: Yellow, well, I figured I would color some brown on top of it so it'd become more dirt-ish, but the colors I used weren't very good for painting on top of eachother, so it ended up yellow. Not that I don't like it, mind. Just not what I had planned.

    I guess in general this map grew from coincidence.

    @AslanC: Project? You want to do stuff with my map? Sure!
