Before last Convention, I had to brew up a design for a flying ship of elvish origins lost in time that players can get their hands on for a campaign across 6 books for the Pen-&-Paper-RPG 'The Dark Eye'. I hadn't done concept art for years now (since I studied, actually), so this was a welcomed challenge. I already knew that I'll turn something like this into a map, too. Concepting this was hard because of multiple reasons: I wanted to do a design that is interesting, elegant, recognizable (for strong cover images that players can link together) and most notable, something that wasn't seen before.
