The BenCast #78 - Chasing Graves: Map 2

September 7, 2018


The second map for Chasing Graves has finally been finished! I've put together a time-lapse of how I created the second Chasing Graves map – the city map of Araxes, the City of Countless Souls. This was a tough project due to the amount of detail involved, taking far longer than the previous world map, but I'm incredibly pleased with how it finally turned out. It took far more digital jiggery pokery than usual, which meant I learnt some new skills along the way. Now it's done, I think it'll go nicely in the fronts of the new books! This video should show you how I put it together and give you a sneak peek of the world of the Far Reaches.

I'll be back to you next week with the first look at the Chasing Graves cover, which I'm very excited to share with you. Chris Cold's artwork is looking fantastic, and Shawn King (the artist behind The Heart of Stone) has done a brilliant job of the typography.
