View Full Version : [WIP] Joffta - Pirate City

02-10-2010, 08:06 PM
I tried to do a city map (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?8171-[WIP]-Orichalcacia) a while back, but got stuck on my incompetence with Photoshop. Not that my skills have improved much since, but I've reworked the style a bit, and hopeful come up with something more manageable for me. So, I'm giving it another go, and will try to do a fantasy pirate city, but pirates after my head, which means civilized pirates, with schools of learning how to be a pirate, and different "clans", each with their own style.

This is a work in progress, obviously, so a lot of the style is not definite yet. The docks will probably be redone, cause they look like crap. I'll probably also have to add a legend that clarifies things a bit, cause right now the houses just look like different colored blobs, and that's not very pirate-y...

Alright, well, ye thoughts for a penny, arr...

Added a few more buildings, redid the piers, added a few bridges.

Any feedback would be most welcome. :)

Visually, I find the overall effect is quite nice, but the individual buildings are looking quite funky. I mean, they do not seem to be practical at all. The organic style simply doesn't fit the pirate era, where building materials (and their cost) wouldn't allow such shapes.

The idea in itself is nice, reminds me of Naruto (pirate/ninja schools, clans, etc...)
