Well, it’s exclusive for now, anyway. But I’m not ready to reveal that second surprise just yet, so we’ll settle for ‘temporarily exclusive to the blog’ and be done with it.
I finally sat down yesterday, scanned my sketchy map that I drew on notebook paper forever ago, and made a couple of beautiful maps for my story, The Life of Gaia. One is the entire world of Lysaran, and the other is more first-book specific, focusing on just Aeslen itself. Obviously knowing what the whole country looks like isn’t terribly important when the first book takes place mostly all in the same area, but hey–you’ll know, I’ll know, EVERYONE will know.
And it WILL come in handy later, I promise!
So, without further ado, here you go! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do (probably not,) or at least get a kick out of seeing never-before-shown stuff from a book that I SWEAR WILL EXIST SOMEDAY IN A READABLE FORMAT.
Beautiful, isn’t it? All of my linework and patterning was done in SAI, then I went in with Paint to do the lettering. 🙂
For reference, the little pointy upside-down V’s are forests. Like, you know, trees. Not mountains. I’m not sure what I’m going to do for mountains…
A PROBLEM FOR FUTURE-ME TO SOLVE.
