Default Multi-gridded Multi-purpose paper/transparency

I made the following. Started out with just hexes. Then I decided I wanted to overlay that with a square-grid as a guide for drawing walls, buildings, etc. Then I decided I should go ahead and add megahex outlines as well.

No, those squares in the square-grid aren't perfect but they are close enough. I wanted to evenly divide the hexes into 4 sections in the cardinal directions.

Use if you like. Don't if you don't. I'm no artist. If you've got something better or similar, please share below.

Nice job, I think this will be very helpful for those of us who don't have Dyson Logos skills.

Thanks. You guys are welcome.

Would there be any interest in having a hex/square grid that is smaller? Like 2 hexes/8 squares per inch? At that scale, you could draw an entire dungeon level on one sheet of paper.

I've always drawn my dungeons on regular, squared graphing paper. I just round-off the distances on a hex battle map/mat when combat ensues or the need arises.
