I'm going to continue work on this project, so I'll be sharing some of the PDF's as I complete maps along the way. I rescanned the first two maps in grayscale and embedded them again. Level 1A might always look a bit different than the others, but I think redoing it is a waste of time. It's a bit rougher than 1B (yet somehow 'better' looking'). If I ever learn how to "antique" or pick a suitable color in which to to wash them, I might redo all of the images at the end of the project.
For now, as mentioned in Monday's post, I'll finish The Upper Levels, 1-3, and play with the images again at that point, perhaps compiling all of the files into a large zip file that could even be dressed up with some artwork.
I plan to finish Level 1C today, and D&D Cover to Cover is looming so I need to find the time to keep that series rolling.
Dismal Depths PDF's:
Upper Levels Guide 1-3
Upper Levels Bestiary 1-3
Level 1A: Tunnels of the Mole-Men
Level 1B: The Chambers of Zod
One Page Mapper
The One Page Mapper is simply an enlarged 30x30 map with the steps which I used listed below it. Allows a large map draw before scanning and cropping then embedding as a smaller image. I used this Mapper for 1B, but not 1A. This explains why 1A has darker ink lines on the map.
Both Chgowiz and Amityville Mike have already shared some nice examples of this minimalistic style. So what are YOU waiting for?
