A comission for Anstett.

Third WIP shot. The building layout is starting to come together now. The regions closer to the wall are newer and poorer; some houses are built directly against the wall. The islands surrounding the main bay are the oldest architecturally speaking, with the palace district to the south and residential to the north - that island off the northwest is abandoned and presumably haunted. Towards the middle of the city are trade districts, which are interspersed with smaller bays for goods delivery and floating markets.

Heres the prospective layout of the various city districts, with notation.

The landings are checkpoints at the main entrances to the city - by the two land routes and at the deep anchorage in the main bay. Due to pirate presence, the city must keep close watch on the movement of goods into and out of the city.

The general development of the city chronologically is from east to west, that is, expanding out from the bay. Harlen, Trennon and Newtown are the most recently gentrified districts, and the architecture in these regions reflects this in the more generous proportions of the buildings and economical use of canals.

Chugging along. Finished laying down houses, added markers and toyed with the color. Also added heraldic crest inserts in the corners, one for each town under the domain of Rivers Bend.
