I blame Fallout 4

I've been slacking in many of my creative efforts lately. I still haven't finished drawing the maps for Hexvouna and I've started to beat myself up over it, but I also just can't get into the habit of sitting down and working on the dungeon. Too many other distractions. Fallout 4 is one of them, but it's really the only thing I'm doing that's leisurely and everything else occupying my time is either stressful or time consuming or both.

Yesterday I picked up a graph paper notebook at the art store and resolved to draw one map every night while I'm at work. Primarily for the practice, but also just to get into the habit of drawing and working. This is what I'm currently drawing...


...the Dysonized lines around the edges take 2 to 3 times longer to draw than the actual map. I'm already trying to think of shortcuts to this process as I experiment with different ways of drawing them. Every time I have a map finished, I'll scan it properly then release it to the blog here. I'm not going to promise that I can keep up the pace and post four maps every week, but I will certainly try.
