I finished this about a week ago now, but got tied up with other stuff, so forgot to post it.
Although this is the first map I've made explicitly for Whispers of Heaven, it's the third one I've completed, since the regional map, and the one for Fallor, got done as sort of freebies while I was working on those for ShatterStar. Now that this is done, all that remains for Whispers is the Camp of the Darkling Prince.
And here are the two Cedralysone designs combined into one, as they'll appear in print!
Here's the second part of the local map of the elven enclave of Cedralysone, showing the main tower of the city, and the major locations inside that feature in the events of ShatterStar, by Krista Rose.
We're jumping slightly out of order here - this is the version of Fallor which will appear in the first volume, but that will print at the start of Part 3. Part 1, Desperation, and 2, the Camp of the Darkling Prince, are not done yet. I made this while making the larger version of the same town which is set to print in ShatterStar.
Yet another map for Krista Rose's Saga of the Rose. Yesterday was the last of what I've finished for ShatterStar so far (got part of 1 local map left to complete), but there's still replacements for all those previously published in Whispers of Heaven!
Today is the regional map that will be printed right at the start of the book. This is similar to the one posted early this week, but does not include Northern Surak, because the Rose siblings don't travel quite so far afield in the first volume.
Today we have "Greater Fallor," which will be printed at the beginning of Part 2 of ShatterStar. It's largely similar to a map of Fallor that appears in Whispers of Heaven, but here we've pulled back the "camera" a bit more to show a couple of key features that fall outside the city limits.
As I mentioned yesterday, I've been all about the maps lately. Over the next few days I'll be posting various local and regional maps that will be appearing in forthcoming editions of Whispers of Heaven and ShatterStar, the first two volumes of Krista Rose's Saga of the Rose.
Today is actually just part of the first local map which will appear at the beginning of Part 1 for ShatterStar. When it's totally finished, there will also be a cross-section of the main city building (which you can see here coming out of the mountain on the right side of the image), depicting major interior features. That part is not finished yet, but this image of the larger valley where Cedralysone, the elven enclave where much of the book takes place, is done, and I'll be making the two parts as separate images anyway, so I thought I'd go ahead and post this as-is.
So, as has been teased a few times, I've been working on another project for Krista Rose's Saga of the Rose, in addition to the interior narrative illustrations: local and regional maps that are interspersed throughout the series. For one, I'm making replacements for those maps which appear in the already-published Whispers of Heaven, which will appear in future editions, both the illustrated version I'm still making sketches for, and the non-illustrated edition already on sale. In addition, I'm also making the similar maps that will appear in the forthcoming second volume in the series, ShatterStar. I'm going to be releasing those first, since they'll be entering print first, though some of the ones for Whispers of Heaven are also already finished.
So! Today, we see the regional map that will appear at the very beginning of ShatterStar, depicting the parts of the world where the bulk of the story takes place:
