    Post Quick map - refugee camp

    Here's a quick (1/2 hour) map I had to put together for a game tonight. I haven't posted anything for a while - so a tight game deadline was the incentive I needed to get something new done. Anyway, here it is:

    Love your style man, nice job.

    Thanks. It was fun to do this one, a real challenge to get it done quickly. I was putting it together while I was waiting for a few players to turn up to our maptool session, so it had to be usable at every stage of the process. It started as a black and white line drawing. When I still had time after finishing the line drawing I dropped the background colour behind it. Then I set up an overlay layer and used the airbrush tool to place some washed out colours in - its winter in the town so washed out colours make sense. When they had arrived but were still chatting about the issues at the start of the adventure I used an overlay layer to put some light and shade into the map quickly.

    The map will be used to track the murders of a killer on the loose. It details the refugee camp that has been set up to the south of this map from a while ago:

    I really do love the color tones mixed with the rough lineart. It's really neat.

    Very nice, torstan. I might have to use that map for one of my own games.
    Cheers,
