    Post May Entry: Shipwrecked

    Ahoy, challenge entry off the starboard bow! Well, one that is foundering in heavy seas....

    I know I don't have too long to put this together now but I was attempting to reduce old maps to fit and that really didn't work out too well. So, emboldened by Torq's beautifully detailed map I have decided that I'll have a shot at putting together a hand-drawn encounter map for this month's challenge in the style of my pirate cove map. I'll also try (really hard) to keep the filesize within limits. I forsee rough water ahead....

    Here's the line sketch as a first draft:

    A ship, pirate or otherwise, has foundered on the rocks in a storm. The battered hull rests among the crashing waves. The party must save the treasure/girl/captives before the hulk sinks finally beneath the sea. However, dark creatures from the deep have different ideas - leading to swashbuckling combat on the storm tossed deck!

    I agree, not much to look at right now, but I should get a few updates out over the next couple of days which should make it look more like an actual encounter map.

    Man, I cant wait to find out how this turns out. If your last map is anything to go by it should be a cracker. It just so happens I'm looking to use the deck of a shipwrecked vessel as an encounter area in a game of Iron Heroes that I'm running, so I'l be snagging it when its done.

    After seeing your other pirate map, I am very excited to see what you come up with here!

    Okay, so some progress at last. Managed to steal some time while at a conference to move this on. Definitely going to be cutting it a bit fine.

    Thanks you for giving us a look into how you do this start-to-finish!

    I like the Brigantine or Sloop size ship you have chosen for the wreck... (not sure if you are keeping two masts or droppings it to one)… anyway it is just the sort of smaller ship that might have had an inexperienced Captain at the helm... I like ship & sailing artwork but all too often it is the big and expensive "Galleons" that are on the rocks... (Less common but still did happen).

    Keep the great art coming… it is a treat to see it form from the blank page.
