No, it's not that. I drew the houses/buildings. At least... reasonable sketches for them, all that's needed, really, is some color.
And if I have color on the terrain, then I need it on the houses.
So.. I started "painting"... and with the houses arranged anywhere near appropriately, the paint isn't the problem: too many important buildings will be hidden by other structures. There's no way to *map* them from this angle.
So it would be a GORGEOUS painting... but not a good map.
I might finish it, anyway, but it won't be a map, so not appropriate for the contest.
And I'm thinking that's why most maps are top-down, so I want to try the more traditional route
So I did the land, as best I could from that view. and now I'm back where I was stuck before - houses.
If anyone knows how to fix either problem, I'd be grateful, but I don't think I can fix *this* issue.
But if it's not allowed to change your entry, I'll bow out gracefully
