Ink and Bamboo Map of Pandaria

   I took a week off of the WoW Crafting Challenge last week, because I decided to take the opportunity to do a little bit of Blizzcon coverage over on The Wyvern's Tail, so this piece was put on hold, though it was ready to go up. Since I'm doing NaBloPoMo, and I have to come up with one post a day every day for both blogs, I decided it would be a good idea to sit on a few rather than post several in one day.

   For this piece I decided to try cartography. Of course it's not real cartography, since I didn't go around and lay out the landscape mathematically and geographically like a real cartographer would have done, all I really did was redraw the existing map of Pandaria.
   I made two maps, and they're both made out of bamboo, and drawn by hand with brushes and Indian ink. I used the continent map, zone maps, and the game itself for reference, and though I made a few mistakes here and there due to doing some parts quite late at night, I still think it came out really well. They're both for sale, individually, so if anyone is interested in WoW, or knows someone who is who would appreciate one of the maps, they're not too badly priced when you consider that it took me about a week to do them both.
   As always, there are more pictures and more info on The Wyvern's Tail's post. They're both for sale here.
