Heroth Castle Map
Heroth Castle Map. I rendered this map for Columbia Games.
I render the base art map in full colour at up to 150% larger than the final publishing size, which in this case was roughly 8.5x11-inches, which means the base artwork is rendered roughly at 13x17-inches in size. The base map artwork is scanned at 400 dpi. I then hand render the crops, shrubs, orchards, and forests, while creating the type, as well as the castle, in Adobe illustrator. All these elements are imported into Photoshop where I assemble them to create the final map.
I have created many such maps over the years for a wide number and variety of publishers and other clients including TSR, Iron Crown Enterprises, Wizards of the Coast, R. Talsorian Games, and Iron Crown, to name only a few.
