    Hello! I have been a long time member and thoroughly enjoy this site. I have a deep interest in "old school" style of map making, specifically dungeons. I found this particular site A Character For Every Game that influenced my style.

    From left to right, playing with filters in Photoshop CS5, edited in GIMP, and the original scanned copy for reference. I will try CC3/DD3 next.

    I am aiming for a more decayed feel of dungeons. This one was an earlier drawing I did which seems bare. I have more to follow. Let me know what you think. If you want to use them, please
    Thanks!

    Looks like a good start.

    SImple font I found on the net. Not sure what it is. I will be working on a larger 'mega-dungeon' type later.

    looks good, like old style dungeons, remind me of "the early years" in rpg

    Nice. Reminds me of The Tombs of Atuan from the Earthsea trilogy. Which reminds me that I need to reread those books again. I think the updated map with highlights and textures is great, but also like the blue water and notation (correct term?) for the tunnel beneath the tunnel from your original maps.

    These are very nice, especially the textures and colour tones used.
