Random Map Ruin
This map was inspired by +matt jackson. I've always liked his ruin maps and it's something I've never been very good at drawing. Matt allowed me to use one of his maps in issue 6 of The Manor, for an adventure, Witched of the Black Moon, I think it was called. I went hunting for it and decided to give a ruin another go.
This is the original map by Matt. I stole as much as I possible could from it. I like the clear, simple defined walls. And then Matt, like the other great map makers, create depth by adding a different level of exploration, it this case some underground caves. I tried to steal that as well, but my attempt is a bit clumsy. But I'll keep practicing.
I may do a series where I draw a few maps in another map makers style, just as an exercise and I hope by the end of it I will have learned a few things from each to make my own maps better.
