Hum, yes, the titles are in french but they are easy to remove if you want to use them for your own purpose Wink
The remaining illustrations will be:
- Dwarven city (like the one in Crown of Shadow)
- Another mountain with a tower at the top.
- A pit
- Overview of a dwarven city
- Hall of the moon and hall of the sun. (Alternative hall of heroes)
- A undergound small prison for an ancient pupetteer.
- 3d illustration that show a track. High altitude.

Wow, these are top-notch! The one titled "Eagle" is glorious, I love it. Your curvilinear line work in that is very good, some of the best I've seen.

Actually, those artworks are for this adventure. But i'm still translating the story about Asmadar ... and I'm definitely better at drawing than at translating Tongue

Yeah, tell me about this. But in fact, i was looking for Time stop. 24h is definitely not enough for a normal day. And it is level 9... Sad
Anyway, come on, i'm a dwarf, a cartographer. Not a bloody elf!

I'm a dwarf too. A workhorse who loves work and jumps at every chance to work, and work, and work, and will probably never be finished. That's why I like editing. Just one more refinement is all anything needs.

Thanks. Unfortunately, i'm not doing this for money, just for pleasure. Maybe one day, some artworks will attract RPG companies but it's not a goal of mine. If I can find the time to write down all the ideas I want to develop, I will feel lucky enough.
Anyway, Thanks about the proposal for translatiing the adventure. The thing is it's not finished. But if you have some spare time I'm sure we should find something else. There are 4 previous adventures already done ... Wink

I've finaly managed to create an account on DeviantArt and have posted many artworks.
It's probably better than just giving a link.

There is a gallery so you will be able to get a quick look.
http://fred73fr.deviantart.com/gallery/

Hope you will like them all. Of course, you can download them, use them, print them etc. It's all free of any copyright. I just hope you will find them useful.
Feedback is more than welcome Wink

They are really awesome your pictures! Extremely impressed. Do you use a computer program for them or are they drawn by hand?

Especially like the extensive maps of Dor-Kanath, tricky to find good maps of dwarven cities. Do you have any more information belonging to those maps? Numbers for what rooms are for what etc.? Could be very useful as abandoned dwarven ruins filled with monsters or a live dwarven city somewhere. Might also be useful as an alternative to the Pardum holdfast map in CoS.

Well, I wish I could do more, find the time to translate the 3 adventures I already wrote, for instance. Well, I guess we all have limits Sad

another one.
Hall of the Moon and hall of the Sun.
As everyone knows, Mother moon and Father Sun are sacred for dwarves. In this map, i tried to find a way to illustrate that and the fact that they are connected.
Circle for the sun and crescent for the moon Wink

Do you like the idea? Has anyone ever though about it? we all know the Hall of heroes, I built a Hall of the Moon and Hall of the Sun  angel

Sorry mate, I didn't answer to that.
I used to draw everything by hand, with pencils but after the unfortunate death of my scanner, I decided only to use my digital tablet, Wacom Intuos brand.
It's not the same work, i admit, less enjoyable but you can work more efficiently, at a better resolution. Except it is not scanned, everything is done by hand and patience. I use Gimp/ Photoshop btw.

I am also working on dwarven cities like Pardrum in CoS. I have actually also written some kind of dwarven architecture guideline to keep the same looking, basic aspect but with new sections.
It is the most challenging map for me, because of the structure of the city with a lot of circles connected to each other and Photoshop is not a CAD software unfortunately. Actually, i'm considering doing them in 2 steps. First with CAD software, and then with photoshop. I'm not well with Inkscape/ Illustrator so i don't have many choices.
You will see the result anyway ... eventually Wink

I love that idea. The moon & crescent thing reminds me of legend of the five rings, which had also that kind of symbolism in its mythology (lord sun & lady moon). This is great Dain!
