Hey there guys!

Been a long time since I posted something that is not related to the Challenges. So after getting lots of 2nd places decided to start something fresh. My first city map was Blight Cave Port (Blightcave Port by felipecarbus on deviantART (http://felipecarbus.deviantart.com/art/Blightcave-Port-382851747)), as for a first try I mapping a city, I dont think it was that bad, but many things about that map made me frustated. And I decided to take another shot at mapping a city and stuff.

I was inspired by Djekspek and -Max- maps, so if they ressemble any of those, my fault, Im still trying to find my style, and I really hate copying someoneīs else style and stuff. So my first WIP of Dallor, and since I suck at writing story and stuff, it wonīt have any really intersting story or background, Im just messing with my skills to see if I find my STYLE, and itīs been a long battle.

Nice, but why is it not in the town/city forum?

This is looking very promising. One suggestion would be to add a stroke around the town buildings though, as it currently stands (without the stroke), I don't think the building style matches the hand drawn style of the rest of the map. Looking forward to updates.

Cheers,

Quick update! Thanks for the support guys! Also it was my mistake, this was supposed to go on the Town/City map, so my bad! If any of the mods could change this it would be great!

Sure, I did it for you :) I concur with arsheesh about the strokes and I also agree that for now the buildings styles don't really match the other hand-drawn elements. The composition though looks good overall.

Very nice work!

I especially love the way you did the lands (river, forest and plains) and the cartouche. I would make the bridges more "visible", as you did with the fortifications. What's the meaning of the yellow line around the parcs? Walls?
