    Map Kingdom of Ravenhold : The Red Epic

    Hey guys,

    Did this as personal commission for a client. I interpreted the original DnD map of this small kingdom state and went to town with it. It was alot of fun, and painting the shield designs was always a nice switch. unfortunately i get more map work than figure work these days, so its nice to be able to flex some more figurative paint skills

    That's nice work there and I really do love those shields!

    Agreed, the shields are top-notch, particularly the one with the hammer.

    Very nice map, with a very cadaverous feel to it. I specially like the compass you made; quite unique.

    Great map Jared! Very good marbling effect on it and all, I wouldn't mind a run-down on what layers and blends you used for it!

    Agreed - nice map, I at first glance I thought the forest was water too.

    Quite a beautiful map, though I must admit like a couple of the above posters, that when I first looked at the map I thought the forests were bodies of water.
