D is for Dragon's Den
I worked up a mountainside cavern home of a red dragon for this map. I found it very challenging to create a lava flow that was distinguishable from a regular river. I'm not completely satisfied with the result of the lava. I suppose it would help if I added color.
I also feel like I should give a shout out to one of my favorite D-named bloggers, Dyson Logos of Dyson's Dodecahedron. Dyson is a prolific mapper and one of my direct inspirations. His simple style has been mimicked by numerous other fantasy mappers around the web, and I had to make a conscious effort to differentiate my own maps in some way. I made a conscious choice to use gray pens to shade my maps, rather than copying Dyson's distinctive cross-hatches. If you are enjoying my maps so far, I highly recommend you check out Dyson's stuff. You wont be disappointed... just please come back here too.
