A little experiment. I’ve been having a lot of fun drawing the mice recently, so I went back to their origin, which was a single, throwaway appearance in Tamino. I redrew everything in the current style while keeping the setup the same. Then I added color to the characters to help make them pop and to emphasize the dreariness of the mice’s (meece’s?) neighborhood. Just a bit of fun.
A little hard to see, but this is a map I made for a friend’s birthday. It’s about 2x3 feet and is the fantasy world we’ve been gaming in for nearly 30 years.
My partner wandered in and said he liked this but preferred things in color. So I did a quick experiment where I kept the color saturation really low and tried to keep the contrast the same as the original. Oh, and there’s the original pencil sketch above.
