Half an hour of doodling resulted in the following piece:
Another 10 minutes in Photoshop and this alternate version appeared:
I really like them. They’ll look awesome as a footer for a page (or a chapter) of an RPG book. Just stick the page number in that big empty hex in the middle.
I like it! Also, I saw the open space and thought it was going to be “insert your megadungeon here” or something like that, which would also be pretty cool. Also it made me think of geomorphs. Hexmorphs? In the style of one of those old tile-based games where you connect up train tracks, canals, and roads, for example.

I really like how you drew the town. Great image. Great idea.
Like it, but not the Photoshop screens. Your detail by hand is much better. Hope you do more hex maps and would love to see them.
