Here is my first map on building/structure mapping. It's the Horus temple of Edfu. It is an existing building.

What do you think?

Nice - love the background, looks like papyrus or maybe linen.

Good job there. That is a Skookum map!

Very nice. Just a couple of comments. I'm slightly off put by the flowery border - it reminds me a little of very twee wallpaper. I was also wondering about the heiroglyphs - don't they get read vertically? Actually scratch that, it seems from a quick wikipedia search that they go both ways.

This is a great map. I love the background and the clear simplicity of the black lines. Beautifully done. Have a little rep for your first building.

Edit: It seems I need to be a little more promiscuous in my repping.

I like how the temple is roughly Archaic Classical/Egyptian in the overall floorplan, with the colonnade (pronaos) in the front and the inner sanctum (naos) in the back. Kudos!

I think you have a great talent for mapping. Lovely work.

I'd lose the flowers too but keep the color slabs border...they're beautiful.
