This is the centrepoint for something new I'm working on. Mostly done the basic map though it needs a few more details added and some overall colour-balance adjustments.

I like it. Do you have a quik technique for all those great buildings or is that all just done the old fashioned way?

Its a very organized town but its nicely done - look forward to seeing progress. Just wondering where all the water for the lake was coming from. I am sure it will get added later tho.

Thanks for all the compliments. I could try putting together a tutorial, though I've never really made one before. It'd be fun to try though.

It's sort of a mix. I use photoshop and I draw all the building rooftops on with the line tool (varying the width as I go). Then I add a layer style of stroke and dropshadow. Then I bisect the roof by hand and colour in the darker side of the roof by hand in a slightly darker roof colour. Then I sketch on some faint lines.

As for the stream, it flows out of the cliff. The whole landscape slopes down but the town is on a sort of flat outcrop. So it runs underground until there. There's a pumphouse that pumps up water in the middle of the town with the excess flowing off that little waterfall.

So, I'm curious, are the purple building the palace/town hall or something? Also, you should do a tutorial on how you did this!
