I was bored today and had only pencil and paper at hand. The result was later scanned, paper and labels added in PS.
It certainly came out well. I'm a lover of hand-drawn maps; there is a quality to them that just can't be achieved by other methods. I particularly like the mountains, hills, and the worn texture of the paper.
Really cool, and only 30 minutes.. nice... repped

That actually gives me an idea, you know how there's all those speedpainting things, and a lot of them are done in half an hour or so..
we should have a speedmapping session sometime
[dangit, gotta spread more rep..]

Here's a link to my challenge thread from ancient times...
So four hours instead of 30 minutes, but we did something like this in the past.
I've wanted to run another speed mapping challenge for ages.
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.

Well enough time has gone by since that challenge, and none of the newbies are even aware - so maybe its time for a speed challenge, unless you got a better challenge idea for April???
