As it stands, the dwarven city of Brazenthrone has 497 buildings with 2,247 rooms across 6 different levels of elevation and has taken around 1,300 hours to draw and color. I hope you like it so far. I don’t know if it’s the largest hand-drawn fantasy map ever made, but I’d say it might be when it’s finished.
There’s still plenty more to do, like the Old Quarter, the mines and a number of residential areas, but this is the core of the map finished and none of the rest will take as long. I mean, I don’t know exactly what the mushroom farms will be like yet, but they’re definitely not going to be six floors high.
These are the original hand-drawn copies of all this, which are currently falling off my wall. Yep, there goes another one. Each page is 11″x15″ (A3) in size and there are… I don’t feel like counting them. There’s a lot.
Anyway, next up is Mont-Saint-Michel, a fortified island monastery straight out of fantasy art, except it’s somehow a real place. For those of you unfamiliar with it, it looks like this. Man… everyone, let’s give France a round of applause. Well done, France. That is just… magnifique as hell.
