I made a sketch a few weeks ago, just to figure out where districts, walls and the river should appear. Here it is :
Then I made a first trial, and that's when I realized it IS difficult to figure such a big city and being credible
This trial was made two weeks ago, just before I decided to ask some advices on this topic. So I still didn't take into account any advice given here
As you can see, the palace is figured into an inner wall, with other buildings that are not figured (it is in the district called "Havre Bourgeois").
For the walls and towers, I worked on this. Guess it could fit.
The biggest difficulty for me would be to figure buildings (houses, but also and mostly important buildings such as temples, warehouses, magic school, barracks and so on) without beeing too small or blur or anything like this.
Another question would be : is it a good idea to draw the sand/rock ground on the map, or is it better to keep the scroll background ? I took some generic scroll but I could make it myself so don't take it into account.
Thank you ! Nice of you to help me. I'm wading about this map
