Hi,
Didn't post here for a long time,
this is a map I did about a year ago, only now I've given it some color & shading.
the concept is this: it used to be a big city on a lake island, but now the lake is dry & all that remains from the city's former glory is the huge tower looming over the city.


Any advice on how to improve would be most welcome.

I like this, and I think it would also be a great looking city when the lake was filled up - why not do a retrospective of the city in its glory?
Was it always a dry environment, or were the surrounding hills once covered in plants? The shadows of the hills and the city are amazing, by the way.

Great work. I love that you put up a map of the place before the water disappeared. It really gives you the right feeling when you look at the now ruined city. I think I have to do something like this once as well, a map before and after the catastrophe.
