I haven't done a challenge in what seems like forever! I'm pretty busy with other projects, but I'll try my best to participate this month!

Hm, well, I did a whole heck of a lot of work today on this, and now I think I need to step back for a while and think about it.

I know I probably went overboard (so to speak) on the dressing and didn't focus as much on an actual pure map. Oh well, it isn't the least 'mappy' thing I've seen on here.

Anyway, it is at 50% resolution here. I kept making the canvas bigger and bigger to add more stuff around it, and came out with something huge. I figure I don't need to post the full one as this is plenty big and it might help hide some of those up-close mistakes.

A hand-drawn city? Curse your brilliance. Well there goes my chances of winning, loving what you have so far Reckless.

Thanks buddy! Don't avoid submitting something on my account!

I feel obliged to point out that the city it is not actually hand drawn--it was made in Sketchup and then exported to Photoshop for coloring, effects, and placement.

Not sure what I am going to do with this... After looking at djekspek's awesome entry I kind of feel like I should scrap this and do something better. I guess there is still time...?

Here is my compass if anyone wants to use it. Use it for anything you want, no attribution necessary.

I think you've got a great entry. It's simple and very well done. :)

Thanks, JT! It looks like today is the final day for submissions, so I guess I'll cross my fingers and redouble my efforts for the next round!
