    Amazing project. You're very good in doing all those nice light effects.
    I like this one and your other dungeon maps very much.
    Can't wait to see more.

    Phenomenal work. Can't wait to see it all come together.

    I'm planning on getting back to this over the coming weekend - I have some spare time for the first time since November.

    Ok - First thing is to see where I am.

    I threw the main keep onto a rough background. I may go back and redo the cliffs properly on all maps later on.

    Here are all the completed exterior maps combined and reduced to a quarter of the original quality. There are some seams visible, in particular between the two western maps. There's an error in the shadow colour of the flag/turret west of the stable. The chapel needs a shadow, as pointed out above. I really don't like the spiky bits on the chapel buttresses. But otherwise, its not too shabby.

    Next I either need to the interior of the keep (two levels), or else the big tower on the east side of the courtyard.

    This is the concept plan I did at the start; reposting this here so I don't have to look back through all the previous pages. No-one is allowed to point out that the crap collage I did in five seconds below looks better than my carefully crafted maps above.

    Started on the eastern tower map. Just working on the roof. I am re-using a tower roof done by BluDragn in 2006 here: Dundjinni Mapping Software - Forums: Tower Roof

    EDIT: and now with added paving and shadows:

    Nearly done this exterior view. The forest below doesn't look very good - I will need to redo the fog effect & lighting.

    Thanks guys. I am now starting on the walkways map. Uploading the first pass.

    In the finished map for this area I intend two versions
    1) scaled as normal.
    2) with the walkways only in focus, and with the ground floor scaled down to look smaller and slightly desaturated and blurred; maybe a few birds. I have high hopes for this but I have no idea what it will look like in practice.

    By the way, I found this while deleting some old files. It was part of a river I was beginning to make for a commission but the project fell through so I never finished it. It might be useful to someone as a base for something. I'd post it in Bogie's 'map elements' thread, but it isn't finished so its not really good enough for that. Feel free to use for anything non-commercial.
