Map of the Month: Havenscoast Overland

As I mentioned recently, I’m on a Jon Roberts vibe. For those that don’t know his work, you can check it out at Fantastic Maps. Not only does he present his wonderful work here, he also regularly posts tutorials and tips on how he achieves some of his great effects.

A feature of his work that I really like is the muted natural colours and textures that he uses on all types of maps: battle maps, overland maps and even city maps. To the delight of non-artistic mappers like myself, Jon has worked with Profantasy to create some ‘styles’ for use with CC3 that include many fills and symbols that allow the creation of maps in a similar style to his work.

For my first column in this series, last month, I posted some battle maps using his style. This month, its an overland map of the Havenscoast region, using the style from the March 2011 issue of the Cartographer’s Annual. I’ve already previously mapped this area in a hex style, and a ‘hand-drawn’ parchment style, so I’m getting quite familiar with it!

I’m not sure this is 100% finished – I’m always spotting new details to add, or a section I don’t like so much, but I think its in a good enough state to post 🙂 Hope you like it!
