Holy smokes, dude. That's an incredible map! Have some rep!
Created in: Photoshop plus Illustrator
Review: While it looks like a2area has won two in a row it has been a while because of poor management There is some excellent work here, with fabulous detail, especially in the surrounding areas.
From the horse's mouth:
Original Thread: Original finished map thread can be found here.This is the first of four cities I am doing for the Soulshard D&D campaign setting. They will accompany
Sapiento's regional and world maps.
This one is done in Photoshop with a little assistance from Illustrator for smoothing some bitmaps and editing some smart-objects.
.... Just for tilt... I added an unlabeled version that has desaturated and lighter sunbaked-clay-looking rooftops plus more shadow to help the relationship between city and fields

Wow, thats really nice. The environment around the city looks extremely real.
What a beautiful map. Look at those fields. :s
I was about to moan at the fact that there were so few replies to this when I realised it was because it was a Choice map. Isn't the first post usually set up to make this obvious?
