Random Map Monday 14 (Just Under the Wire)
I think I prefer doing Random Map Mondays after work than before. I am so negative otherwise. He's one of the most recent maps I drew. I went through a drought the other week and couldn't get myself to draw. Then over the holiday weekend I drew four.
This one I went with the more textured trees. Or sometimes I call them my 'brain trees'. Instead of the blob trees. A simple creek running through, some steep hills with colors contour line and a broken up building. Oh, and a broken road.
I used this map in my latest Patreon, it is called Old Sloculm Road. It's an out of the way place. A road that once connected a kingdom that no longer exists. This map spoke to me right away. Told me what it wanted to be. Here's the end result.
I used Xara to add the white backing to the labels to make them pop more.
When I go on Google+ and look at all the amazing maps people are doing, I mean some of these guys are absolute artists, and hope my maps add to the whole. A little pontificating before sleep.
