Village of Frogsmord [color] by SirInkman Village of Frogsmord [color] by SirInkman
ink and watercolor on paper

Here's a little map I made back in November as part of Mapvember.
It was about half of an A4 page, maybe 2/3rds.
I inked the pencil line work and then did the color with colored india inks and a bit of watercolor here and there.
The colors are a bit brighter than I had intended them to be.
The india inks are quite vivid and it was my first time using them.
All in all, it was a fun learning experience. :)
I will definitely be doing it again.

Another lovely town piece J!  I see what you mean about the vivid colors, but it looks wonderful all the same.

Cheers,

Nice one. I am a big fan of doing everything by hand (inking, colors etc.) - go, go old school! :-)

I like traditional, but it is more demanding.
And no undo when you make mistakes. =P

I know what you are talking about. The feeling that this one extra thing would look great and the fear to screw it up completely when it already looks "OK". ;-)

However, when I left behind computer coloring recently, I found that I now think a lot more about what I am doing. Plus, I it feels a lot less like work-work when I do not sit in front of a screen.

This is a good job! I would like to know, are you planning to draw more maps like this one?

Yes. I have some sketched out.
As far as traditional color [ink/watercolor], I'd like to.
Digital color is easier and faster though.
But, of course, that's partly due to experience with digital and less with traditional.
We will see on the color. ;)

The bright colors sure give it a cheerful feeling! I'm certain the residents of this hamlet get together every Saturday to sing a song about how lovely their hometown is. Y'know, Disney style :D

.... I'll show myself out.

I love your maps! if this turned out brighter than you like, you can always desaturate the color now you have it scanned in. I always look forward to seeing your new maps!
