Very great art! I love the details you put it.
And i really can see, where you might got your inspiration for the castle from Wink/Razz

Thanks for the kind words ;) ! So you really know where the inspiration of the castle comes from?
Since I didn't precise this information, I would be very impress if you could say so.
It's a very well known castle indeed. So what do you think it is ?

At least, i think I know it. And i would say, as long as there is no other very similar castle ;) (Wink) , that it should be based on/ispired of Bran Castle in Romania.

Then it's official! You impress me ;)
It is indeed based on Bran castle or also known as Dracula's castle :D

I love the style of this map. It's very distinctive and gives the viewer a lot of detail without sacrificing the artistry of the landscape sketch. Well done! Have a llama.

You pinpointed exactly what I want to achieve with this kind of maps/ illustrations. Maps can be a bit boring and illustrations not so much useful. Blending the two of them into a single piece is tricky. I guess I did well on this one at least ;)

It is tricky indeed! I generally start with a map and try to add artistic touches with things like compass roses, frames, icons, and labels to suggest themes associated with the locations I'm mapping. Taking the opposite approach as you do showcases the theme nicely.

Really cool, a real accurate feel and well-integrated in the surrounding settlement. The mix of floor plans and panoramic view is great.

Ready for use at any gaming table :)

Félicitations !

Thank you for showing your enjoyment. Be sure that I take it as a fuel, that they energize the next project(s). That keeps the motivation high and boosts the speed doing the illustrations.
I will do my best to keep these comments coming. Thanks again ;)

You flatter me! Your work is wonderful and I thought the way you did the layout was really quite genius. Being someone who struggles with perspective, I can truly appreciate how much effort you put into your work. May I ask who this piece was for? I assume you do this professionally.

The piece was indeed a commission for a french RpG magasine called CasusBelli. For the issue #11 I believe ;)

Excellent! Hope you got paid well for it. I have no idea what the market is like for RPG's in France.
Reply
:iconfred73fr:
Fred73fr Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It was fair enough ;)
France is a small country regarding RpG business (compared to US for instance) but it could be worse :P

Yeah, even the market here in America for RPG's isn't as great as it once was. I work my ass off and I still only make about minimum wage. Do you live in France?

I believe that only a handful of illustrators achieve well in this business. Pretty hard to do it for a living.
In fact, I'm living in Italy at the moment. We're expats and we have the chance to move into a different country every 3-4 years. We spent some time in Australia and Switzerland as well ;)
