It has been a long since I have done any mapping and it is time to refresh the skills. I'm feeling a bit rusty and struggling with both palette and saturation, but we'll see if pieces start to go together.

The plan is to make this a small area map with some mining habitation. The area is dried out and you can still see the numerous riverbeds from the time when there were a lot more rains. Comments and critique is welcome as always.

Cheers,

Oh wow, that is great work. It has a real Mediterranean feel to it. Gives me the feeling that just off-screen are a bunch of roads and goat-trails leading down to a beach.

Everything is very well done, and as Bogie said, we almost have the impression to fly over the land :) The only thing that disturbs me a little are the cobbled streets. It looks different and a bit too bright imho.

I was gonna say the exact same thing. That and the fact that the eastern point of your town seems a bit odd: there doesn't seem to be anything of particular interest in that region, and it's a weak point in your town's defense.

And another thing: considering the scale of this map, wouldn't it be better to move this thread to the Town/City Mapping Forum?

Apart from that, my sincerest compliments on this magnificent map, mate. You almost make it look like an airborne image!

Thank you for all the comments.

My original plan was to have the city in much smaller scale and the main point was to be the region itself. But plans changed....
I toned down / darkened the cobbled streets and changed the eastern point of the town. They look better now. Added also few mining buildings, more roads, trees and some ground forms (rocks etc).

Next some labeling and I'm finished I think.

WAIT what's that up behind the big house on the cliff.


Dying from curiousity >.<

They look like trees to me...

I don't know... there's a faint little path, behind the big house.. and in the center at the end of the little path is a smaller structure... maybe it is trees or a rock or something... I can't see it well, cause my screen is tiny :( I thought its a hidden building or temple or something... :P
