Going to make a town near the border between two warring nations. Going for a somewhat hand drawn approach.

The nicest one so far

Very nice... though shouldn't the buildings be a bit larger in comparison of the road? Just seems like the road is wider than the buildings, but then, that could just be my modern living talking heh.

Yeah, you're right they should probably be larger. :)

Very nice layout. Perhaps some of the roads are as destroyed as the bridges?

09-23-2010, 02:53 PM
Wow...Very nice (makes me wonder why I even bother entering these things... :) )

Pretty. The buildings are a bit small compared with the roads, though. Maybe grow the buildings just a bit and shrink the roads a tad to being both closer together? I like how much detail you've got in there...and love the ruined buildings, they're very cool.

Just make the roads thinner. Nothing in the rules that says you have to use the exact proportions...have a river in the same place in relation to the roads and have the same street layout but make things as fat or thin as you want.

Tweaked the roads a bit and redid the buildings. Also added some more ruined buildings. I figured the closer they are to the big river, the more destroyed they would be.

Awesome. That's a winning style.

I can't wait to see how this will come out and I'm quite sure that's it's going to be one of the winners.

I like the new font too. Now I have to enter this contest

I really like the changes!

One thing that seems to draw my eye to it, and I am unsure if it even matters... but the parts if the road/bridge that are sticking out past the land into the water have an outline around them. For some reason, I feel like they shouldn't be outlined in that the outline classes with the way the rest of the roads are drawn.

Getting a little bit crunched for time but should be able to get this done by the 15th. :)

Looks nice =D Although.. I don't like the border around the houses - I guess you have just used Photoshoplayereffects, which add no anti-aliasing at all, so it kind of ruin (See what I did there?!) the overall quality of the image :\

I think I'm ready to call this one done. The folds and the wood border might be overkill but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Now I wish I could change the name of the thread so that it properly displays "September/October Challenge" since I was a boob and forgot to put it in there. :P
