Though I still have a lot of practice to do, I think this map has been a successful proof of concept for me, and I’m excited to develop the technique further.

It’s a nameless and unmarked town, as usual for my region maps, but that’s because we’ll be fleshing this town map out further when Troy’s accompanying article comes out! Please subscribe below if you’re interested in that sort of content:
