    Map Valmara

    Well I have finally finished this third and final map in a series of three and overall I think it be the best of the lot.

    Specifically I feel like I improved on making the compass rose from previous maps as the person I was doing this map for requested a stylized compass based of a phoenix.

    This was also one of my first times doing a regional map insert, and despite having some difficulty mapping the smaller map elements. I feel it ended looking alright. Really like how the colour and woodland elements ended up too.

    Any feelings, criticism, or comments are welcome

    Cheers!

    I simply love that rose compass! I really like the regional map in the corner too, great job!

    A wonderful example of a handdrawn map. Layout, composition, colouring, details... everything fits.

    There is just one thing that I think could be improved: the red corner / triangles between the two maps are standing out too much. The red is a real eye catcher in such a green dominated map, and distracts from the real content. I would delete them completely.

    Pretty map I tend to agree with Freodin about the red corners though.
