Map of the Rain Wild River: colour by Crooty Map of the Rain Wild River: colour by Crooty
Here's the colour version of the Map of the Rain Wild River, charted by Leftrin, captain of the Tarman, illustrated by Alise Kincarron.

It was commissioned by Robin Hobb about a year ago and was supposed to appear in the last e-book of The Rain Wild Chronicles, Blood of Dragons (but the publisher never finalized the contract).

The original black & white version is also available on this site, and I'll make the large, printable versions available soon too. I also have both in French (thanks to Arnaud Mousnier-Lompré's help).

The map is PITT pen on various layers of tracing paper. The sketches were done in pencil on paper. Pieces were then scanned and printed on Canson paper, and painted with Ecoline ink. The background is a sheet of paper I kept in my jeans back pocket for a couple of weeks. Everything was then scanned again and assembled digitally. The font is Callie Hand by Callie Renee Roberson.

Par curiosité, tu as lu quelle édition? (je me demande si ma carte se trouve dans la version poche en français ou non)

J'ai lu la version en anglais, hard back! J'ai tendance à me jeter sur les bouquins de Robin Hobb le jour de leur sortie. Tu me donnes envie d'aller jeter un oeil sur les formats poche dans la librairie la plus proche.
Sinon, on s'est déjà croisées sur le forum de John Howe il y a quelques années et ensuite à une séance de dédicaces, toujours de John Howe, à Genève. C'était le bon temps!

Heu. Nassima, je crois? Ou Nass? Ensuite je suis revenue il y a deux ou trois ans, ai réalisé que les anciens pseudos étaient effacés et ai utilisé EleneB. Et puis j'ai de nouveau arrêté de poster, difficultés familiales...
A Genève, on avait fait la queue ensemble, discuté avec Fataneh et John t'avais fait un dessin de Fitz et moi un dessin du Fou.

Beautiful! Not at all what we usually see at the Cartography Guild, so that's an added bonus :D
