Rhen

Not confident in my digital mapping skills, I started mapping Rhen in pen and pencil. It went through a number of iterations before I bought a nice poster size piece of paper and started penciling. It took about one month before drawing the individual trees drove me crazy and I started looking for help digitizing it.

It didn't take long before I found it. Pretty soon it was outlined and colored, and then all I had to do was make a few adjustments. For version 2 of the Northern Realm, I plan on stylizing it and giving the individual regions more attention, but I'm pretty happy with how the first one turned out. Maybe someday I'll finish drawing those trees...
