Spook has been creating fantasy maps for the past three years and is absolutely killing it!
Spook’s first completed map, created after several attempts, remains one of his most popular maps to date. He has since created several iterations as his world grows and is currently in the process of creating its newest update.
Spook began creating maps on Inkarnate three years ago when creating a world map for his own campaign world Isica (seen above). He has since continued to create maps for himself and others, quickly growing a large library of beautiful fantasy resources.
A current example of Spook’s parchment map style. He enjoys filling each of his maps with detail adding to the intrigue of the fantasy worlds presented within.
Since his teens Spook has been an avid D&D player. This lead to a friend suggesting he create and run his own campaign a few years ago. This one suggestion would be what set Spook on the path to create the gorgeous map art he does today. Although he has yet to run that proposed campaign he has found a passion for fantasy maps and a skill he continues to develop to this day.
