View Full Version : The Bridge District by Dain

Created in: Photoshop

Dain created this piece for issue 7 of the French magazine Casus Belli, but thankfully he also shared it with us as well because it is a fantastic map, and an example of good line-work.

The bridge is about the 3rd map i've done for them and they are more to come. Stay tuned.

This is a fun map. I would love to use it in a Game. No only if I could find others to play...

Well well, finally I got it. Yey! ::D
Thanks guys for the support ;)
I have to admit that I've wondered how I could get one of my works featured. It's a real pleasure and I'll do my best to do it again, and again.
I believe it's the outcome of hard work and will to pull my weight into getting back something old school.
Thanks again, and let's see if I can get the same with the cemetery :D

Very nice job! Good layout and cut-a-ways, and very good linework. An excellent map!

Great detail. As an avid role player I wish more modules included such work.

As if it weren't an amazing city map, it's also isometric and has interior layouts and labels! Astounding!! Very worthy of praise. Kudos to you, Dain.

Really an astonishing piece of work, and so fun to look at! It looks like a stronger, faster Ponte Vecchio.

I don't quite see how #5 exterior on the bridge matches its blueprint on the lower right? It looks from the exterior that the ground floor should be bigger than the upper floor? I guess I don't understand the transition from v.3 to v.2.

Anyway, stunning work. Looking forward to the others! Thanks!

Amazing work. I enjoyed the little descriptions regarding the towers.

I love all the details. It's like each building has a story to tell.

Wow, absolutely love this one, like the Exploded views and the line art is really, really really nicely done. I think the shadow is a little too dark, though not much. Thanks for sharing.

This map is wonderful. Great idea with call outs to key buildings.
