Playing Around With Mapping

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is more of a work in progress, or belongs here in general fantasy.

 

In any case, I got a copy of a book* on do it yourself fantasy mapping for my older son for Christmas, and yhen decided to get one for me too. As miniature wargamers, we have need of a variety of maps for campaign purposes, and I usually rely on my kids. I wanted to see if I could do this for myself for a change.

 

Here's a test doodle, to no particular plan, just to try the inking and watercolors, neither of which are techniques I've had much to do with.

That is really neat.  The thing that grabbed my attention though was the lettering, or printing, or whatever you would call it.  That is fantastic, and really adds to the map.  Nicely done.

Thanks. I've done some calligraphy for many years; I was a little disappointed to find that the finest point calligraphy pen I have now, though, was still too large to do anything but the biggest labels. I should also have waited to ensure that the paper was absolutely dry, as there is some spreading. That's why this is a technical test ...
