I have not drawn much natural caverns so it was refreshing to draw this map for one of my $3 tier patrons as his custom map reward.
I was asked to make a cavern tunnel system with a room big enough for a boss fight and some crystal shards sticking up from the floor. I’m always in when subterranean crystal shards and boss fights are involved and I got pretty much an idea of a volcanic tunnels filled with stalactites and stalagmites and a lot of level variation. I wanted to add an underground river to work as a kind of a main feature tying everything together. I also wanted to add a few caves that would be more difficult to find or that could be used as quick hiding places when running away from some vile beasts.

This map was originally published on Patreon with the support of my awesome patrons in April 2016.
