    Map Midcyru-Night Angel Map W/ new map

    I've been reading Brent Weeks Night Angel trilogy. It's one of the best stories I've come across. The characters are so deep, and in ways you would not expect. I had just started the second book when I decided to contact Brent.

    Being an artist, I've always been fascinated by the maps that accompany so many fantasy books. Sometimes I'll buy a used book just because I like the map. The thought came to me to redo the map of Midcyru, but I didn't want to offend the author Brent. I asked permission to use the maps for my portfolio and post them on my favorite forum, Cartographer's Guild. He responded quickly, and said he'd love to see what I come up with.

    Some of the difficulties in redoing a map is the limitations. All of the facts are laid down already, which means I don't get to create as much. But this could also be seen as easier.

    The first map is the original. The second and third are the alternative maps done by me. I tried to stay as close to the original as possible.
