Random Map Monday 1


I thought I would start participating in Random Map Mondays.  I draw enough maps.  When I watch Netflix or even while I am gaming, I'll draw an outline of a map or some idea of one.  I'm one of those folks that likes sensory overload so I can focus.  Yeah, I know, sounds like complete bullshit.  Probably is.

Anyway, I usually do three different levels of maps.  I don't tend to do world maps.  My largest map type is above.  A region map.  I always draw those using a hex grid.  I draw the maps on 3" x 5" index cards, scan them into the computer.  Then, for the region maps, I open the map in Paint.net and add the hexes.  Works fantastic, you can control the size of the hex and line thickness.  What color and so on.  Perfect for this kind of thing.  They also have one to add square grids.
