    Post Cruzamento De Rio - by Coyotemax

    Map (Click to enlarge)


    Created in: Photoshop

    Review

    Cruzamento De Rio is a fantasy city created by Coyotemax, using Ascension's city tutorial. The original city map was beautiful already, but Coyotemax did another version 50 years in the future. The town has grown a lot since then, adding more houses, new walls, a second mill and a second bridge. We think the end result is spectacular and can be considered a work of art. Don't neglect to look closer at the cartouche and border of the map. You will be amazed!

    Coyotemax says:
    The town itself has expanded, mostly on the west bank. The walls have been completely rebuilt, including tearing down the original stone section to be replaced with more sturdy construction. There is a second mill now based on the design of the first, a dual waterwheel variation. The bridge has been rebuilt with stone. A second bridge has been added, this one is still made of wood partly for economic reasons and partly for defense.

    And again we wanted to feature this map earlier, but Coyotemax entered the Lite Challenge and featuring him at that time would have eliminated him... which we didn't think would be fair
    (eventually he won that challenge)

    Way to go CoyoteMax! This is shaping up to be one heck of a few weeks for you, with the Lite Challenge win, a featured map, and well in the running on the Sept full challenge. And all very well deserved

    Well, the september voting just started and there's at least half a dozen maps that could/should get a lot of votes. So he doesn't have that one in the pocket yet!

    But agree with you Coyotemax is on a roll
    Talent should be recognized and treasured of course.

    Wow, I knew i was improving, but I didn't think I was improving THIS much just yet

    But really, credit where it's due, if it wasn't for Ascension, i might not have tried my hand at a city map. I'm glad it turned out as well as i did

    And thanks to the rest of the people on this site - fantastic tutorials, amazing maps to use as inspiration, and endless words of encouragement, advice and constructive feedback.

    **happy dance, and you're all invited!**

    I actually did wonder why this hadn't got the recognition I felt it deserved. When I saw this map I was gobsmacked. It's so beutifully done.

    Congratulations Coyotemax. Definitely well deserved.
