In the early stages of the Covid epidemic, I spent a fair amount of time returning to Final Fantasy 14, which had changed enough from when I left the game in 2017 that I had to relearn how to play even somewhat decently. When I started the Shadowbringers content, I fell in love with the first area, Lakeland. The violet leaves and grasses charmed me at first sight.
After picking up a book on map art and illustration, I decided to try my hand at it using Lakeland as the prime example.
I would like to say right now that under no circumstances will I do the rest of the areas of the game. Especially not the Sea of Clouds.
Also the printed version has a different mountain colour from the digital version due to the fact that I was printing this on kraft paper and wanted to ensure that the knockout space would be visible.
