Trying for an evocative begining to a city sub-adventure.

This map was created enirely in photoshop using the Vintyri building symbols. I wanted to have the feel of a crane shot from the opening scene of a muder mystery.

Looks nice and clear. I might consider a few colour and dirt layers to make the buildings look a little less identical.

Much, much nicer than when I started gaming :).

Maybe. One thing that has often struck me when looking at photographs of estates in many cities is how uniform and anonymous the roofs are.

This map was inspired by a scene from a TV show. Every building was so non-descript.

Technically correct in being identical yes. Aesthetically speaking it's all too identical. Ya need some smudges n dirt here n there, shrug...unless these houses were built yesterday :) I'm not sure what the funky blur around the edge is for, though.

Okay. I guess this should be moved out of finished maps then.

Na, not at all, just throw some grunge brushy stuff in there on the roofs and re-upload.

heh, just toss a grid on it, and you could use it for a battlemap or VTT layer.

Now that's what I'm talkin about. Excellent. Really adds some character.
