Process Post 68 - Miskatonic University map
Another illustration for the Herald TTRPG book.

This one was actually pretty tricky. I don't claim to be an architect and I wanted these to look like early 20th century college buildings, so I ended up using Google Earth to look around at Brown University, Harvard University, and my own alma mater SCAD. I essentially flew around these digital campuses, mixing and matching various buildings, pausing to draw them by hand. (Miskatonic is Lovecraft's fictional university inspired by Brown and Harvard. I just added in SCAD because a few of the buildings are old enough to be period accurate and I figured it'd be a weird Easter egg probably nobody would ever catch.)

I can't tell you which buildings came from what school because I don't have the best memory and did not take notes, but maybe somebody who's a nerd about colleges can figure it out!

Steps include:

1) inks

2) cleaned up inks + shadows.

3) adding in pencil texture for trees and grass as well as gradients.
