    Wip Wolfdell Village 4E WIP

    This is the village I'll be having the PC's start out in... refer to the regional map of Stormwatch for the area map.

    The large looking structure is actually a massive dragon's skull which was transformed into an Inn... I've not come up with a name yet for the Inn... and I came up with the village name before hand, so I might actually change the village name.

    Any suggestions or words of advice are encouraged.

    That's a great idea for an Inn. How about "The Wyrm's Roost"?

    I like it.

    The less obvious tack to name the inn would be to commemorate the dragon's killer. Of course no matter what you named it they'd probably call it the Dragon Head Inn. Still something like "Bandard's Triumph" has a nice ring to it.

    heh.. or "Bandard's Folly". He figured out the easiest way to kill a dragon was from within. Of course there is the little problem of being killed by the dragon in the process...

    Very nice. I normally don't like pencil drawings that much, but with the inking you have done and then the color, this looks really nice.

    The pencil is just an underlayer to go by .. I left it partially visible so that you could see the progress ... once its completely done... there won't be a pencil layer to show... that's the idea anyway...

    Simply Beautiful! I almost prefer the WIPs of these sorts of maps to the finished product where you can see the sketches.

    Yea, I'm with Ravells. You work with enough computer art and it all begins to look the same - even the good stuff.

    Makes you appreciate pencil work and traditional mediums. Especially pencil, in my case personally, because its so expressive.
