    Default January/February 2014 Lite Challenge: Fortress Scoopz

    Hello fellow cartographers! I have come to enter the 2014 lite challenge! I present a city map! Not any city though, a fortress city... of massive proportions!

    Fortress Scoopz:

    So to help you understand the city, it's this: A huge citadel, the triangle, surrounded by a medieval town, surrounded by more recently constructed star fortifications. This is pretty obviously a rough sketch, but I just wanted to get something up to show people!

    If you got anything to say about it, say it here!

    Enjoy!

    Alright, a short update!

    I got the basic wall layout done tonight, so you can see it starting to take shape:

    Still have to get the outer bulwarks up, but I don't feel like drawing triangles in GIMP right now D:

    Other than that the next think on the chopping block are the bastions and the inner citadel details.

    Sorry folks, I had a nice update on its way. Unfortunately my GIMP crashed before I could save most of it D:

    I'll try and get that out in the next couple of days!
