Congrats and well deserved. This is one of my favorite maps here on the guild.

Blaidd Drwg's city of Val Nevan (modelled on traditional 17th Century 'bird's eye' view maps) uses both natural media and Digital painting to best effect. The line art was done traditionally using micron pens, scanned and coloured in photoshop.

Wow great job
we can feel the pleasure you had
It's almost impossible to praise this map highly enough, and it is a most well deserved addition to the cartographer's choices.
Perfect handdrawings makes this map one of my favorite maps.
This looks so very detailed and atmospheric. Impressive!
A very nice city complete with a castle! Nice work on this one....
Better late than never: thank you all very much for your kind comments. And it's absolutely fantastic to see my map on the front page with all the other CC maps. =D
