Here are a few sketches I made over the past few months. I used Winsor Newton pens in 0.05, 0.5, and 1.0 weights. I also used Tombow markets for shading multiple colors. I wasn’t trying for any type of theme, just learning and making mistakes.
Main goal was to force myself to focus on town sized locations.

Farming village on ridge with pulley to haul up the produce.
Coastal town outside mountain range.
Fortress with moat. Exploration with new grey markers.
First town sketch in greyscale.
