I've been browsing around this forum for a while now looking at the awesome Maps you guys produce.
So for my first Post here i chose a Map i am currently working on
For my next D&D-Campaign I startet drawing the Players Hometown.
First with Pencil, then inked with a rotring radiograph. I scanned the original and startet
colouring it with gimp. Only thing which wont work is the Landscape/grass-part (would be thankfull for tips)
So, without further introduction her its (still wip)
Critics and Comments are welcome!
That is really pretty! :)
As for grass ... I guess it depends on what you have in mind, but I'd try by drawing paths between the buildings. If you draw the edges of it with small strokes, you get the impression of grass. When you're done, you can colour the areas in between.
Here's an example of what I mean.
Maybe it works better if you put the texture on the grass instead of the roads like I did :P
Hope this helps. Happy mapping!
