Studiomate Teddy recommended a dark wash on the forests. I double checked with one of main source materials and decided this dark wash would be acceptable. But really. Seriously. I think I'm done. Except for a few, very minor (and spiteful) things I might add.

So the map is done. I put a thin ink wash over the watery areas. I'm 99% sure I'm done though I may let it linger on the board through the weekend to see is something else doesn't need to be added. This is--by my estimate--the first large-scale drawing I've finished in about two years. Wow. Not much finished work for being in the studio on an almost daily basis.

Hottest. Day. Ever. (Except for tomorrow and the next few days.)
I spent the whole day rendering a jungle--the Jungle of Suttung--and I added a forest, a lake, an ocean of bricks, a sultanate, a padishate, named three rivers and a city and a vanished city . . . but somehow I forgot to take photos of a lot of it. You get an overall shot and a detail of the forest where the feral old poets live. But somehow I slipped the rest of it. Blame it on the heat. And the beer.
Now. Excuse me while I shower with a beer. Good night.
