    I know exactly what you mean. I was thinking of that as well. The map started as a "flat" old school map but it has been growing beyond that. I'll also should do something with the statues (the stars) and the altars since their style fit the old school approach more that what the map is turning in to (my turn to say, if that makes sense).

    Yup gotcha - taking from just a 2d flat map to what I've decided to call a 2.5D map (a flat (2d) map drawn to give the illusion of something close to 3D).

    You got it, SG. I added an Inner Bevel to the walls and columns and came up with this:

    Putting the statues/altars to the side for the moment, I need to do something about the trees/garden that run along the sides. Hmmmm...

    I wonder if an inner-shadow on the water would help at all?

    You might want to add shadows for the trees n such, but then you're starting to get more into that whole realism thing...I like the flat one tho
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    This temple wasn't working for me so I decided to go back to basics. Here's the 2D version (so far). I made some minor changes.
