This map is shaping up nicely. The palisade looks particularly striking.
Looking very good!!

And I like the shading on the motte. Beautiful!

Love how this is shaping up.
I liked the ISO grid you had in a prior version, but with a caveat that you shouldn't have it visible on the sides of the hill, as it throws the eye off perspective and makes it look flat, rather than on a hill (or it did for me). If you have the grid visible on the hilltop and grasslands, but not on the hillside, I think it will make it look even more three dimensional.

Assuming I stick with fantasy cartography, I'd like to become a World Builder, laying out not only a realistic topography, but also the geopolitical boundaries and at least rough descriptions of the countries and societies.
I tried making new houses that are drawn in actual iso perspective, rather than just looking kinda sorta like they COULD BE. I don't think they all look quite right. The white ones at least need thicker lines in the corners, but might not fit with the others at all. I was trying for a little variety, but I'm not sold that it looks good that way. What do you think?
