Ravenloft Promo poster map “Land of the Mists”
This map was created for a free give-away at conventions 1997-98. I really enjoying working on this one, even though it was a very stressful time trying to balance managing and being creative. I ended up taking it home to finish it mainly due to the lack of a art space at WOTC, everything was cubicles and we were so used to our drawing tables and light tables and being able to paint and make messes in our cartography area at TSR.
For the portraits around the border I used various people I knew who worked for TSR/WOTC for reference. Jefferson Shelly, Wendy Wallace, and of course Jim Atkiss as Count Strahd von Zarovich.
Everything was hand drawn then inked on vellum, and camera shot onto film paper and then colored with Martins watercolor dyes, and some white acrylic paint.
