Lighting Dungeon

Here's where we start experimenting with shading and light! It's a bit hit-and-miss, especially with the watermark, but I do like how it turned out. Also, it's a nice traditional dungeon, excellent for a dungeon crawl!

Pirate Cove

A bit of an experiment, this, in a number of different ways. First and foremost, this is supposed to be a closer perspective than a lot of my terrain maps. I figured the new detailed style would work well with a more detailed focus, and I think I was right! We're also playing around with skewed perspectives on the Portolan lines; they've been shifted to hopefully add to the illusion of a bird's-eye view of this island. This I'm not so sure it worked, but it was amusing watching GIMP struggle to handle the perspective adjustments on the size of the original file.

Fans of that series will hopefully recognize this map, as I was so struck by how incredible the level was I immediately had to stop and sketch out the rough proportions. Several hours and many, MANY attempts later (THANK YOU, ISOMETRICS), we settle with this.
