Cool dude +Matthew Lowes was drawing maps like this over on Google+ and I thought it looked cool enough to make me want to try my hand at it. You can view his post here:
Black and white version
You might recognize the colors used on the map (first one up above) as well, they are taken directly from the old (read: good) Forgotten Realms maps that were produced for the box sets. Damn I loved those maps!
Numbered, in case you crazy mofos want to use this somewhere.
That's a great mapping style! I also dig the map from the link.ReplyDelete
I loved the style as soon as I laid eyes upon Matt's map, just reminded me so much of my youth and those wonderful early computer games. I just had to take a stab at it and see how I would do.Delete
This is excellent stuff! Dead simple and artistic. Also, I really like your choice of colors for the topmost version! Will definitely try my hand on "Lowes style" mapping!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Glad you liked it. Those colors come directly from the old FR maps, I have always loved those. If you do a map, be sure to post it, I would love to see it.Delete
