View Full Version : Two floor tower

10-13-2012, 12:24 PM
I made this simple two-floor tower for Rossic (here http://www.cartographersguild.com/mapmaking-requests-archive/19358-please-i-need-2-floor-tower.html). Rossic is using it in a free pdf adventure (hopefully he'll post a link here someday.

The brief:

I tried to give the impression of the tower constructed out of a bedrock outcrop extending over the water, but I don't think I succeeded very well. Nevertheless posting it here in case anyone has any further use for it.

That turned out really nice. I take it that the increasing blurriness in the second and third maps are supposed to represent higher elevation? If so, I think perhaps a more effective technique would be to create a wider land/sea base to begin with and just scale that layer incrementally for the higher elevation maps. Then just crop the first and the second map to match the third.

That's a great idea Arsheesh - I'll definitely try that next time.

I dig the style quite a bit and similarly like the increasing blurriness on the ground below!

This is really nicely done, can't fault the execution of it at all. My only query: No windows/arrow loops even on the second floor?

That's a good point larb. I would have added them in if I had had a little more time.

Very nice little tower.

Very nicely done! Care to share any tips on how you created it?
