Here's another one. It's amazing how much I forget.

The layering of the spaces that this sets up is really interesting.  I'd think it would be helpful for a DM to have a version of what's not hidden, in order to help communicate to the players just what is going on.  I think I get most of it, but a couple things that don't seem to make sense in this (for me, anyhow) without some further explanation.  But I like this a lot!

Actual Play  - 
 
In today's Dungeon World session, the heroes chased spider queen cultists through the night-darkened streets of the city to rescue Oomfoofoo, Queen of Beggars. During the pitched final battle against a giant spider and two cult assassins, Romeo, my bard, lost the use of his shield after the giant spider sprayed Romeo with webbing, effectively sticking Romeo's shield arm to his own chest. Undaunted, Romeo rammed into a cult assassin, sticking the assassin to the webbing as well. Via a series of phenomenal hack-and-slash rolls, the 9-Strength bard then proceeded to headbutt the cult assassin to death. Romeo's fury at Oomfoofoo's rough treatment by the assassins knew no bounds. Huzzah.

A hill rising out of a mere. A smaller island near a peculiar tower without doors or windows. Two quays at the bottom of stairs leading up to simple-seeming structures. Within the hill and beneath the mere's waters, dungeons await exploration.

This is really good; it's simple, but versatile.

Another isometric map, this time of a dungeon surrounding a large, abandoned well.

This isometric perspective absolutely rocks! I'm going to practice some myself just because I dream of becoming +Mark Chance. Mark, when you finalise this map, perhaps a subtle difference in colour shading might more clearly distinguish the various levels?

Three maps that I drew, scanned, and then completely forgot about. What's up with that?

The Handicapper General has an office in most countries nowadays. His minions usually receive their training in "cultural studies" departments at major universities. :)

Well dungeon map plus crude grocery-store pencil coloring. I'm so old school that I look downright unprofessional. :)

Colour rocks! For more impact, shade the bottom 'edges' of each feature slightly darker, creating the illusion of weight or shadow to the 'lower' edges, thus highlighting the 'upper' edges automatically. This will make your features pop.

My first isometric map. Of course, I didn't notice the misaligned lines in the pit area until after I'd inked the whole thing. Sad huzzah.
