I was commissioned by a member of DA :iconcatkinsvedka: to produce a perspective map of Improbable Island, a text based online game, as a gift for the creator of that game. www.improbableisland.com/home.…
To my knowledge this is the first bird's eye map of Improbable Island. Hopefully it's a satisfying view, if you play the game. ;)
It presented some interesting challenges but was fun to work on. Cheers.

Omg... and west of New Pitts... there are even the islands Xan claimed as her own! I know it's just a coincidence but ... YAY!

Thanks Jake. :)
Don't know where the island is so it would be difficult. ;)

Personally I like all the little bits and pieces added, I live near woods and I wouldn't say they're mountainous but there are some stony areas amongst them, so really this is pretty accurate.

My house on the Island is right by where the paths intersect to make a triangle! You've really done a spectacular job of it.

One commented "I can see my house from here!" when he saw the map. :D

Haven't logged into dA for years, but as an avid player of Improbable Island, I gotta leave a fav + comment. So neat to see the game map as a drawn map! My fave bit is the li'l meanders, good job of turning the game squares into a natural landscape. The rocks on the grassy pathes are a bit off (wouldn't pathes lead through easier terrain?), but in the dense forests they add to the air of wilderness. The clouds are perfect to add perspective and background. Here comes the spaceshuttle zooming in to drop off more hapless noobs! :D
