And here is my attempt to bring it all together. I probably need to adjust shadows where they fall across towers and buildings and varying heights. Also some of the flying buttresses need extra depth where they rise from the forest canopy. And there are some seams. But overall I'm much happier with this version than the last version.
The exterior maps are nearly complete now. I have three things left to do:
1) redo cliffs to north of keep and make cliffs stick out here and have a series of buildings under keep sticking out a bit.
2) do the keep gate where the bridge joins the main keep - once again the cliff sticks out here.
3) do the cliff properly - I never really did the cliff well. Maybe I can get away with the very rough cliff I have now. I need to make a decision.
And after that, I will be able to work on the interiors!
This project is getting better and better!

Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
