Jokmal Bird's Eye View by wingsofwrath Jokmal Bird's Eye View by wingsofwrath
A small reference sketch of the area between the towns of Jerbal and Jokmal, including the Marban/Tambr frontier, part of the Inner Space world.

Here's a handy reference link to the map.

is the labelled, more colourful version.

Also, bear in mind, that, since the drawing is meant as a reference sketch for the area it is more of a stylised rather than a factual representation of what Jokmal looks like from the air.

The relief has been flattened somewhat, the roads widened and some of the buildings made bigger to make everything visible at a glance and without overlap.

Basically, it's like one of those nifty sketches you find in resorts or other touristy places and stuff which tell you how to get to your hotel without getting horribly lost, but with less bellboys and more border guards.

Now, considering the fact Jokmal sits on a disputed border and currently has an active volcano as a neighbour, I'm not sure getting to your hotel would be the biggest of your problems if you somehow ended up there...

I am going to attempt to make a board game out of the inner space stuff you've been doing it's pretty cool and I like the story behind it as well as the map

Wow, you have some nerve.

I'm sure you think telling me my stuff is cool enough to steal is a compliment, but here's the thing -  how would you like it if you had a project you worked on for a few years and then some random guy off the internet one day decided to inform you he's going take your stuff and use it for his own purposes?
Not even asking for permission, straight telling you he's going to do it, as if he's doing you a favour or something.

Well, I don't appreciate it, I don't appreciate it at all.
And if I ever see you use a single shred of my stuff in whatever game you intend to do I will report you for copyright infringement so fast your head will spin.

Especially since all of your "content" on DA is already stolen and posted as your own.

Oh I didn't mean it like that I just thought it would be cool to make a board game with my cousin and I wouldn't try to sell it sorry I won't if you don't want me to

Yeah, it was exactly the wrong approach to take, especially since I've been having problems lately with people stealing my work. 
You should have asked me if you could use my stuff first. I would still have said no, because the project is very much still in development as of this moment, but I would have been much nicer about it.

In any case, what I think you should do is come up with your own world. You can use mine as inspiration, but come up with your own map, vehicles, history, culture, architecture, religion etc.
I warn you this is a lot harder than it looks, because you have to read a lot as well as watch anything from anime to history documentaries to understand how a world- any world- works, but the result is worth it. Also, be advised the first few drafts will inevitably suck. Don't be discouraged by this, just keep at it and the results will come.
And another thing. By all means, be inspired by other peoples' work, but take their ideas apart and rebuild them from the ground up in your own image, don't just use them as they are, or else you're going to end up being sued for copyright infringement.

Do I see a couple of forts near the river bends...?
wingsofwrath Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Not exactly subtle, are they? :D
Arianod Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nnnooooooooowp :D

Heh. Truth be told, that is more of a "conventional representation" on the map rather than the way the fort actually looks like - it's dug into the rock and a lot more camouflaged in real life.

Here is how it was supposed to look like before I changed the map.

Back then the town of Jokmal was located behind the fort to the left rather than the right as it is now.

Also, the current incarnation of the fort looks a lot more like the WW1 Italian Forte Campolongo(links only in Italian but I'm sure that is no huge problem for a fellow Romance language speaker).

Which reminds me - I really should start learning Spanish - it's unpardonable of me, especially since yo no hablo español, pero entiendo, porque el idioma español es muy similar al idioma rumeno. (probably got all kinds of things wrong in that phrase, but since I've never learned any Spanish I ask you to be lenient... and correct the hell out of it, because I really need to learn XD )

Heyyy, that was actually spot on! La la la la  Except it's 'rumano', not 'rumeno'; but the rest was flawless. If you start with it, I bet you'll have the language mastered in no time.

But is it really that similar? When I see something written in Romanian, usually I can only make out like, one in four or five words Sweating a little... In spite of the common Romance roots, it doesn't look like an easy language to learn for a Spaniard like me...

All those shades of green are beautiful! What do you use to color this?

Ever since I got the first one free with my first Wacom (Painter 6, I think it was), I've been a fan of Corel Painter, despite some rather obvious bugs that never got fixed.

I was going to settle down on the Painter X version, since the upgrades are definitely not worth the money, which, by the way, is a lot - by putting out new versions each year, big software companies like Corel are trying to rob us blind, since most "upgrades" costs something like 200 Euros (250 USD) and don't bring anything that groundbreaking - but, by a stroke of good fortune, I got my hand on a cheap used copy of Painter X3 from someone.
