Yeah. I know. Those colors are pretty glaring. The font, while great for my site etc, is not great for labeling maps. And, and, and…

I gave myself an hour, and I think I went over it.

Still, I learned some things. I started thinking on a more regional scale. I know that should be obvious, but when you’ve looked at a world map for long enough, it seems kinda tough to get down into anything smaller.

I started thinking about how neighboring cities / regions would interact. Queensguard is the the capital of the continent, so I started thinking about the ‘why’.

This was all while I was figuring out how to do cartography in Procreate on my iPad (my weapons of choice).

The best news is that I know things now that will change how I would do things in the future, and really, that’s what this is all about – growth – even if it comes with a side of pain thanks to glaring colors.
