    I agree with tilt about going on the right direction with this map (even though I wouldn't have a problem voting for you if you're dragon was nice)

    Thanks!!, I think I was trying to be too clever with the "tears of a dragon" idea although I might still finish it just for me... oh and could someone please change the title of this thread to "September/October Entry: The Sawmill at Northrun"...Thanks!!

    That was the thing that was scaring me the most...I came up with the idea and then spent an hour asking myself whether or not I could actually DO it...

    Where do you think "baby" brussel sprouts come from....

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    I would say that it is a must for you too finish it after the challenge. Such an original idea and too go lost. No way

    Wip

    Here's a little update.

    I discovered today that I am an idiot... I had the sawmill tucked way back in the woods..Hmm how are we gonna the turn the blade??..Right...Ok fixed that. I also "smudged" the roads some, I wanted them to look like they had been "tramped" in over years. This IS a sawmill after all

    Right now your trees have a hand-drawn look (the black stroke around them) and this doesn't mesh with the realistic patterns of the houses. This may change down the road but I thought that I'd just make you aware of it so that you can plan how to tackle it.

    Good point. I had actually planned to use the "brussel sprouts" as a sort of "scale place marker" so I could decide what looked good with what and I kind of forgot about them.. Thanks for reminding me...

    Wip There's nothing quite like a visit to the "Nymph" after a long day at the mill....

    Tonights update:

    Cut down all the "Brussels sprouts" replaced with more photo-realistic trees. Still not 100% on them but they can stay for now.. I resized some of the sawmill items. Water wheels are BIG as are raw trunks sent downriver on barges. I added a "location key" now I'm not usually a fan of these things stuck onto a map but I figure at some point I'll need to know the names of these things and now so do you.. It's to a point now where I can just look at it for a while until the next idea hits me. (Although I would like to do a barge..
    As always feedback is requested and appreciated..Thanks!!
