That is amazing. You have to be born with Talent, and I was Not.
Thanks JR,..appreciate the comment.
,.......and sure you were. Your one of the most talented at being a Modern Day Southern Gent as there is anywhere.
Got in 3 days this week,..not full days but you know,.... got to spend some time on this 3x,....So I think I really only have 1 large leg of this map to get down. I'll have to double check that but that's where I think I'm at. After that I'll finish up the cartouche box,.....then we'll do our first inking Everything shown has been gone over with the scrimshaw tool.
Map is completely roughed in,...still have to finish the cartouche box,....then all the script,..shading,..detailing......but it was time to do an initial inking to see where I was at. So,..here's where it's at
Thank you,...gettin there.
Awesome work, you are very talented
Thank you,...I'm just too dumb to quit.
Looks nice!!! Love it!!
Spent a solid 5 hours on this yesterday. Really focused on getting the cartouche box knocked out...fixed a couple of spots on the map...and at the very end went over the compass rose...Nothing new is inked yet..but everything is scratched/scribed. Probably have multiple more sessions to get the cartouche roughed in and ready to do some detailed shading. On the compass rose I cut in some initial shading on the triangles...and went around the outer ring with the "wider" end on my scribe..next time I ink it will hold more ink and be "fatter" than the inner ring....as per our reference pic.(hopefully). Also added that little "quarter circle" at the end of my pencil...it was probably a mistake by the cartographer to not completely erase a circle he used for reference on the original map,..at least that's what I think...but it's there...so when I see those things they get added.
I will use that fat end of the scribe a lot on certain aspects of the map and just wherever it helps give the effect I need of a wider darker line. Also I will be using a couple of different black inks,..one darker than the other (again hopefully),..to give the cartouche and some of the future script a "pop". For me the variances add up and prevent everything from looking like it got hit by the same hammer....I just prefer that look
Nice work aaronc
