I'm now restructuring the map again. I will make some inlay maps plus the illustrations plus the astronomical charts/drawings plus coat of arms - I guess I have to clone myself to do this in time!
I like that new version much better, Sap. You can still see the detail in the drawings, but making them smaller like that cleans them up and yeah, doesn't draw too much attention away from the map itself. And that harbor castle drawing is stunning, but it needs banners and flags from the roofs!!!
Plus, I'm gonna get my ass kicked in this contest by, well, just about everyone, so it's probably all for naught.
"I like a look of agony, because I know it's true."
That's why I avoid these kinds of maps - way too much work, way too little time. Hope you can do it.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
