Drawing Maps, Part II

Drawing Maps Part II I just thought someone out there might like to see an updated version of the map of the Archipelago from Islands of War.

I've added ocean depth and mountain detail. This works much like adding topographical detail to a traditional map, with a slight twist: I colored it to make it appear similar to a satellite map.

If you compare to the previous map drawing post, I believe you'll find this version far more beautiful.

I guess after I finally get around to finishing the mountains I should add a compass and a distance scale. That will require deciding what that scale should be. So far I've been a bit deliberately vague about how far apart everything is, but I guess the whole area is probably the size of a medium continent.

On the other hand, I could slap a “Not to Scale” label on it and continue being vague. Heh.
