I am running another 4th edition D&D game in my homebrew setting of Demetia. I decided to redo my area map in a pseudo-hand-drawn style, using Gidde's "Hand-Drawn Map Tutorial (for the Artistically Challenged)".

I didn't want a purely black-and-white map, so I tried to do a watercolor effect on top by using a soft brush and lowering the opacity a lot. I'm not sure I am happy with the overall look right now, but will probably be experimenting more with it.

It still needs roads and settlements, along with finishing work. But this is not a fancy map for display, it's mostly a working map I can use for the game, so I probably won't do too much fancy finishing.

Anyway, here is what I have so far:
