An awesome floating island

Dyson's Dodecahedron

This week is a series of posts about Mirelyn’s Skyrealm – a map I drew at the beginning of December as part of a cartographic challenge. The challenge was to draw a map of a “floating island” and the map that will unfold over this week was the result. I don’t normally give a lot of work-in-progress material for my pieces, so I’ll discuss what I did as I went along for this one. 

‘twas the night before Christmas and all through the Skyrealm there was a raucous party!

And why are they partying? Because Mirelyn’s Skyrealm was drawn as my entry in the Cartographers’ Guild “Lite” challenge that ran from November 15 to December 14th. And that version above (with the paper background) won the popular vote and took home the prize!

So to celebrate the win as well…
