Looks very professional. Illustrator? I can't seem to get crisp lines like that in PS.

Yep, all in Illustrator.

Yes very nice. One to keep an eye on for sure. It looks much nicer full size than the thumbnail here suggests. I.e. everyone should click on that image.

It's nice that Batman gets a room on the 5th floor. Should have good views.

Thanks for the encouraging comments, they are very much appreciated.
I've updated the map a bit...thought this might make it a bit more interesting.

Looks wonderful. My only criticism would be that your new background is very pixellated when it's zoomed in to its correct size.

Yeah, I swiped it from the 'net so ya-get-what-ya-pay-for I guess. :-)
I'll have to figure out my own or scan a piece of parchment.

Coyotemax posted a load of distressed paper textures that he created himself. Look for his thread in the Mapping Elements forum and snag yourself a copy of them all. They're great.

Don't forget to put ### latest WIP ###

before your posts with images in so that the thumbnail scraper picks them up.

I added another version...not so sure about this one though.

Here's a really quick sketch I did showing a nice 3/4 bird's eye view of Castle Scant. Hope you find it interesting.

Sketch is great. Maybe you could incorporate it into the finished product somehow as a decor. It really brings the castle to life!

Also, Batman?

Thanks, I plan on incorporating it in the finished piece...somewhere. :-)

A batman (or batwoman) is a soldier or airman assigned to a commissioned officer as a personal servant.

Just to say that if you did incorporate anything else into the map then you had best post it up very soon indeed !
