I am getting ready to run Valley of Bones, so I've had to scramble to get some stuff done. I thought it might interesting to post my prep work. This mostly relates ro the two largest above ground settlements in the Valley.
Your rough maps look better than the ones that get published, fucker. I especially like the first one. What kind of pens did you use on it?
I ink all but little and round stuff with a #3 pointed round Windsor Newton Kolinsky sable brush. For details and teeny tiny work I usually go with a Pigma Micron .03. So for that map, I think I did all of it except the structures and city walls with the brush. The structures off to the side were all done with a brush.
Lovely maps :)
I really dig that map.
