That came out really well. If you don't mind a suggestion, next time you make a plastic clay bound book like that, you might try using actual leather strips rather than the clay for the binding. I think that would be the only thing I can think of to improve it.

Thanks.  :)  And thanks also, for the suggestion.  Other materials, like leather/suede, twine, wire, etc. would be great to incorporate for the bindings and such.  :)

I just discovered that you sell maps, too. I bought three last night. I was struggling (mostly procrastinating) with drawing a jungle/ruins encounter area for a wilderness adventure in south Xen'drik and "Empire Road" and $2.50 saved me a lot of work. I also picked up "Degra's Offering" and "Miasma Summit" at the same time. Very cool stuff!

Thanks so much!  I hope you enjoy them!  :)

It's been a long time since I've made a new battlemap... I've been feeling a bit burnt-out with that lately.  But dabbling in some other things recently has helped to recharge my batteries.  :P  This past week or so I've been getting some inspiration for it again.  :)

Incredible detail for such a small thing. Your eyes must hurt from the strain! :)

Thanks!  Working on such a small scale isn't too bad (surprisingly!) but my main problem is bad lighting in the house, which means I see lots of mistakes the next day when I take them outside to photograph.  :(  And trying not to squish the clay as I continue to work on it has been a bit of a challenge.  Heh.  :P
