For some odd reason, I've always wanted to make a map with sea monsters map. I finally did it! Here's a screen shot of the map:
I used a tool called Tilemill by Mapbox to make this all happen. First I sketched my monsters on paper, and then I decided to paint then using gouache. Here are the paintings.
After that, I take the paintings and scan them. Once they're on my computer I touch them up and knock out the background in Photoshop. After that, I save them out as PNGs and add them to my map. My map doesn't do much, but I had fun designing it in the short time that I did. It was fun to dabble in designing maps. There's a lot more that goes into one, than one would think. Anyways, hope you enjoy my map!
