Here's a nice video overview of how you can use Grid Cartographer 4 with games like Eye of the Beholder. Plus a quick demo of the table-top drawing features at the end.

Cutaways from Sorcery! 4.
 
Spoilers!

Here are a couple of cutaway illustrations I created for Inkle's mobile adventure game Sorcery! 4: The Crown of Kings. The first shows a monastery and the second is a kitchen facility complete with a secret passage.

They're used in-game as animation backgrounds and allow the player to explore the city of Mampang in depth. Fun Projects FTW!

I started running Mutant Future/Gamma World for the first time today and as another first, I started using isometric maps and the players totally flipped out, they loved it so much. Now I need to start drawing more

Hello there. Would you fancy a fantasy map? Check it out on my blog at http://www.miskafredman.com/maps/map-the-icon-of-deception/

By the way, how come it's so damn hard to draw decent stone walls? Some how I always get them too thin or the thickness varies too much. Or something else. I think I need more wall-drawing drills and graph paper. One day I will master the mystical technique of the Drawing of Walls. One day... 
What looks like a dull and ill kept old stone keep hides a beautiful garden and a giant statue made of gold inside its cold walls. But like its outer appearance, everything in this temple is…

Interesting terrain
Difficult to scale cliffs, and suspicious crater (source of magic meteoritic iron, dragon lair, cracked opening to multi-level underworld, whatever)

That crater is an entrance to the underworld, where you can get meteoric iron, but it's guarded by a dragon. :)

And the door is in the middle of the cliff. :)

Finished the 5th and final instalment and added color. I've attached a 150dpi version here. For anyone interested, there's a higher resolution (300dpi) version available at DTRPG, which includes a clean (no text) layout as well. Cheers!

Hello again!
I've just drawn this on a cut-off of A4 paper and scanned it to the computer. It's not finished, but I have lots of college work to do ( 15hrs+) so time is very limited.

Still, I like to draw maps and architecture and really don't want to stop because I have other things to do. Maybe I'll be productive enough one day to do what I need to do while giving myself sufficient time to do some cartography and so on...

I've attached the image I decided to draw my inspiration from (link to DeviantArt submission at end of post) so you can see some of the likenesses, though there aren't as many as I'd like...

Even now, weeks after posting a certain "work in progress" map of an old town I visited, there have been no changes to that map. I've called lots of things "work in progress", but have come to learn that I'm not good at coming back to old work to complete it. That's something I have to work on... Finding it difficult.

The image I drew inspiration from:

Sorcery 4: Crown of Kings is here!

Sorcery! 4 by inkle
https://appsto.re/us/n16kdb.i

I had so much fun working on this project and its three preceding Sorcery releases! Kinda sad that the series is finished. The encounter location cutaways were particularly challenging (and a blast) to develop.

Thanks to +Jon Ingold, Joe Humfrey, and the Inkle crew for bringing me on board and for being such a pleasure to work with!
