View Full Version : New City Map - Sarastara

09-22-2012, 08:58 PM
This will be completely hand drawn like my Pepplefen village map. I am mostly doing this for practice. The city is from my own personal novel and RPG setting (like Pepplefen is). There are lots of interesting history and cultural points about it. It has a mix of two specific architectural styles too. I won't bore you all with those world details though.

The map is 50% of it's actual style. Still doing all the linework (it is taking a while!). I left my notes layer on too as it might be a useful indicator.

A bit more detail done. I should have most of the linework done soon and then I can start on the colouring.

Looks VERY good. Iam still trying to do my first settlement project, but it seens that I do not have the talent for ir. Congrats.

Very nice lines ... I'm again tempted to upgrade my tablet a bit, since it's getting on in years!

I love the rooflines and the layout. It looks really natural. Can't wait to see this develop.

Mateus: I assure you, it requires patience more than talent, so I hope you give it a try!

Larb, I really like your village outline. I love the way your style is progressing in your town maps. The more purist hand-drawn look is very attractive. I look forward to watching this map progress.

Thanks. I find more more procedural style is quicker but I do like the way the hand drawn stuff is turning out too. Anyway, I finished the outlines. Well I will probably add more farmland details and such but now it's on to the colouring!

This looks absolutely magic! Really inspiring stuff, Larb!

Really nicely done. I like how there is the master sluice for the mill quarter.

What an astounding talent you have, sir. All told (minus the breaks to post of course) how long does something like this take? It seems equals parts talent, devotion, patience, brilliance :)

I think it's taken about 6 or so hours so far. Maybe more. I'm not sure. When I focus on stuff, I sorta lose track of time. That's why I avoid putting anything in the oven when I'm drawing. =P

Also what is uploaded is only half the size of what it actually is so it's actually bigger.

Amazing yet again Larb :) Can't wait to see what even more work on it will make it look like!

This is truly awesome. More inspiration to get back to city building. :)

This looks amazing! Your city maps are awesome. I cannot wait to see the coloured version! :)

Thankyou. The coloured version may be a while coming, I have this regional map I am determined to finish in the meantime and colouring this thing will be a huge project.

This is most wonderful. I absolutely adore the style. :)

Style is totally awesome! It's rather inspiring work actually... I hope I'm good enough to do that someday. You're hand drawing this, with a tablet or with pencil and scanning?
