Breath of the Wild hand-drawn map

About the hand-drawn map:

A3

The original is about 41 x 31.5 cm and was done in pencil and ink over the course of two months in 2017 (contrary to popular belief, I do NOT have a lot of free time – I spent my evenings after work drawing this lolololol).

The map was made by using the game’s unique climbing feature – I literally surveyed and drew what I saw from high places in-game. The in-game map was also a big help as I could pin landmarks and reference their geographical location relative to each other.

The final product has had some texture and background added digitally (colour changes as well) but the drawing of the map itself was all done by hand.

The final product is sepia toned and monochrome.
