City mapping, yay! Haven't done a lot mapping lately, so I'm glad this challenge offers me a wonderful opportunity to get active once again.

This time, my entry is the city of Nimmerlicht (literally translated as "Neverlight"). I only created a very rough sketch yet, but I thought I'd post it so you can follow my progress. I'll also add a description of the city as it goes.

Let's see how this comes out :)

looks good - and you got an early start :)

Yeah, may be early, but hey, the challenge happened to come at the right time :)

Drew the basic city parts and a city wall. Don't know yet which style to use... Maybe something like a handdrawn map?

a handdrawn map is always nice :) ... just finished watcing Lord of the Rings again - love that mapping style, but its not so fitting for city mapping

Experimenting with the look...

Nice update! Really liking where you're going with it.

love the waterpainting look :) .. only critique are the lines used for hills, and the roads being a little to white :)

They are white because I didn't get round to any layer styles yet... And I'll change the hills when the time comes, don't worry. But thanks, I like the waterpainting myself :)

Sorry guys I'm having serious time problems at the moment, I can't finish it in time. I guess I have to pass on this challenge. Maybe I'll finish the map someday, but for now could someone maybe delete the thread? Thanks and see you soon!
