    Map City by the Sea

    Hi there,

    This was commission for a private game. I changed the name of the city for preview purposes. Map was done in Photoshop with Wacom board.

    Comments and critique always welcome! Thanks.

    This is fantastic! It must have taken you ages to complete.

    Yep, about half way through I started to think maybe there would have been an easier way to do this than to draw every building by hand... Luckily the one I was making this for was a really patient guy.

    Awesome city! Drawing everything by hand pays off in my opinion, it looks fantastic. I think some deeper contrast in the colors and a few warmer tones here and there could be something to consider

    Thanks Lingon! I did take your advice and added some warmer brushstrokes in the ground and the trees. Really subtle but it's better! Then the map got published by Rite Publishing as a Rite Map Pack, so yay! I think I'll try to do a WIP here for my next Map Pack, as the value of the advice and critique here from very talented people is priceless.
