Li’l all-black and white mapday this week! Figured I’d lay off the crazy colors from the past couple weeks and go with somethin clean and snappy. Also, I figured out photoshop patterns! I increased my water abilities by like, 63% with that.
oh crapday! I didnt reblag the last couple weeks. Oh well! You can always go check em out at mapday.tumblr.com
In-progress shot of a Mapday I’m working on! It’s tough reinterpreting game maps, as they’re usually laid out pretty well in the first place (especially in the case of Blizzard), so I have to spend an extra amount of time re-fleshing it out, and really getting to know the landscape of the thing.
Hopefully I’ll have this weekend free to work up a little queue of Mapdays, and keep them posted before like 11pm! I’ve got a wicked cool backlog of ideas, I’ll just see what I can do!
It’s been a while, cartographers and cartographettes! But I’m happy to say that (at least for now), I’ll be updating this tumblr Mapday EVERY WEEK ON MONDAYS with a new entirely fictitious map, because, y’know, monday is mapday and mapday is a place for fantastical maps of places that don’t and won’t ever exist!
So to start it back off again, here’s a map of a strange little land called Lo, which rings a forbidding and dangerous inlet.
Well here we are again, it’s always such a pleasure.
Mapday! A little lower-key this week. I thought I’d shake things up from my usual line-based style, and try my hand at speedpainting?
I really need some more practice! Definitely changes the style up, though. I can see that I’d be able to do some SUPER neat stuff with this, maybe I’ll give it another go in a couple weeks. Maybe not. Who knows!
Well, one more PokeMap for Mapday couldn’t hurt, I suppose. :D In honor of the new season of Game of Thrones, I just couldn’t resist.
Unfortunately if you want a fire starter, you need to start in the east, but a solid Direwolf out of Winterfell works just fine. Make sure to bring a ghost type if you head to take out Gym Leader Mormont on the Wall, though a fire type isn’t bad either - and having a solid fire type is GREAT at Harrenhal. Oh, and while you might think you’d want an electric type for the Iron Islands, you’d really be better served with a solid ground-based Pokemon - which could also serve you pretty well at the Eyrie vs the flying-types there.
Well, it’s spring and time for me to start up a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. So I thought I’d get in the mood and redraw an old map? The Land of Neldraad, in full technicolor, and the old version of Neldraad that I think I drew… 2 years ago?
I can’t wait to see the maps that I’ll be able to make 2 years from now! Hopefully Mapday will still be running, so I can keep sharing them with y’all!
