The second looks kind of watercolory, the first looks more stylish to me.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

Kudos to you torstan.
I prefer the second. I can't determine depth off the first.
Reminds me of when i was playing around with the Oten Jo map
My finished maps
"...sometimes the most efficient way to make something look drawn by hand is to simply draw it by hand..."
I like both of them, for the most part. However, the second one, with its "smudgier" look, strikes me as something that might serve as a player hand-out. A mysterious map found by the characters. It's not clean and precise and looks, instead, like something that was done in a hurry by an "amateur," maybe on a scrap piece of paper/parchment with charcoal or small hunk of burnt wood, before it was misplaced. It could very easily, IMHO, make for a great adventure hook. Either way, it's looking like an interesting development, and I'll have to keep my eye on this thread.

When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.
