Another Map
Another small little map project of mine, took some hours. The original sketch for this is from 2016, I just didn't have any inspiration to draw it properly. Now that I've done some maps already, my skills at map drawing have evolved and it doesn't take long to draw "good enough" maps for random stuff, which is nice.

And I just like drawing them

Accidentally further away from sketching
One of my countless characters, Calyeldë. I just needed some profile art for rpg stuff, and quick sketching evolved into... something.

I actually feel like my skills keep deteriorating no matter how much I draw, since every new picture looks worse to me than what I drew before it. I hope that's just some self-inflicted bias and not actually something that's happening. Oh well.

Bare essentials (color sketch)
It's not very easy to sit down when your designer cares more about the look of your oversized hips than the mobility of your knee joints.

Anyway, I was trying to draw but couldn't finish anything, and I just got very tired of trying to draw so... controlled, so here's a random sketch I used waayyy too long to shadow. You can clearly see I didn't even try, I just splashed colors all over and smudged until my soul was soothed.

Wearing underwear today
Today I woke up and felt like shit, so I randomly decided to begin my day with some juicy drawing practice. Unsurprisingly it quickly turned out to be about naked robots, though only almost naked this time. Improvement or regression? HMMMM

I tried to capture that certain almost-but-not-quite human feel, close to uncanny valley so any anatomic weirdness is on purpose. I had almost no sketch and tried to draw as quickly as I could, so lines are wonky and the style is not that smudgey. Also I wasn't motivated to shade or color properly so the overall quality is lacking, oh well.

No mature filter since I don't really think robonipples are worth censoring.

Here's few maps for Troian RPG (troianrpg.fi - only in Finnish, sorry) I've drawn, now that I got a nice collection of different types!
I just thought it would be a fun thing to do this kind of post for a change. I really enjoy drawing and explaining stuff like this.

2017
Airan (or Airan Ostâbar), a small town between a southern mountain pass near the Red Desert. Old elven city, but was conquered long ago by the Troian kingdom. Now it's again in the hands of the elves, after the Merlem nobles took their old capital back and reclaimed their elven realm, Meres.
The town is controlled by one of the old Merlem noble families, Perennúr, who co-operated for centuries with the human nobles overseeing the city, before backstabbing them and taking it back.

Trosan, old city of dwarves of the Bardem mountains. Not much information to tell, at least not yet.

Ganosport, a quickly growing port city in the edge of the Red desert, famous for it's large monastery that's a traditional place for pilgrimage.
It's ideally positioned considering trade routes between north and south, which has caused it to flourish for many years, but now also unexpected problems. The population has increased too fast for the infrastructure to handle, because the re-estabilishing of the elven realm has caused many of the southern humans to desperately flee towards north, and the only route is through the city as the Merlem nobles now control the southern seas.

Kalman, a small swamp city favored by the slave traders. Originally estabilished as a northern elven colony, but has been in the possession of Troian kingdom and thus in the hands of the humans for ages.
Rich dwarves from the Bardem mountains often come down to visit and buy fresh workers for their mines, which has become an integral part of the economy of the whole region around the city itself. Since enslaving free Troian citizens is in fact illegal though slavery itself is not, most of the traded "goods" are imported from south or east. It's greatest problem is that the crime rate just keeps increasing.

2018
(This map is rearranged and re-drawn, based on an older version of the city map made by Yuff.)
Tremas, nowadays the largest city and the capital of the Troian kingdom, called also "the city of the law" as the judiciary has traditionally resided there. In spite (or maybe because) of that it used to be crime ridden and a generally pretty unpleasant place, but after the elves rebelled the bastard king moved his court there. With the increased surveillance and maintenance directly under the ruler the city has become steadily a much safer place.
The population was growing too large with the refugees from south and finding a decent housing was becoming impossible, but that was solved in a cruel way after early winter and a failed harvest caused a great famine.

I claim to be better with written poetry than visual art, but I don't write in English.

Nowadays my main tools for art are my drawing monitor and PaintTool SAI. I'm old Gimp lover/hater - our relationship is complicated.
