Photo: From this section, you should be able to tell which way the prevailing winds go on this world!
Photo: These are my first canyons, actually, and my most extensive mesas. I quite like them! I also am very happy with the colors I got here. I was trying to evoke something like the Sedona area, but more lush.
Photo: Now with labels! Again, I did this in a stream-of-consciousness way. I made up a few characters on scrap paper, and then combined permutations and variations on those characters throughout the map in brick-red ink. (I like the brick red much better than the crimson which I used for accents on Nicole's map.) I also made up a few symbols. None of the labels have translations or transliterations...yet.
Photo: Here's the map with color. It worked nicely, with the exception of the brown mountains at lower-right, which reduced the contrast of the ink more than I'd like. I was also able to do some more precise effects with the color/ink interfaces, such as the plateaus at upper left.
Photo: Map for Jeanne: for this one, I reversed my normal order of operations. I've found that the watercolor washes soak into the Bristol while the ink sits on top, so I inked this one before coloring it. Also, I did this one in a stream-of-consciousness way with the ink, rather than pencilling it in first and tracing over that in ink. You can see that I left space in the forest ahead of time for labels - and I've got some scratch characters for those labels off to the left.
