    Map Commission: Sheinar, Capital of the Six-Cities Confederacy

    This is the first of four cities I am doing for the Soulshard D&D campaign setting. They will accompany
    Sapiento's regional and world maps.

    This one is done in Photoshop with a little assistance from Illustrator for smoothing some bitmaps and editing some smart-objects.

    .... Just for tilt... I added an unlabeled version that has desaturated and lighter sunbaked-clay-looking rooftops plus more shadow to help the relationship between city and fields

    I am utterly impressed! I've been wanting to try my hand at a town/city map for some time now, and this map is one of two that will serve as my primary inspiration. Looks like I can't rep you for it yet though.

    Cheers,

    I can't rep you again A2 (after your last opus), but rest assured I am repping you in spirit.

    Damn, that's crazy awesome. Almost a perfect satellite shot. Truly impressed again, mate, so keep up the great work.

    I love this style you have here. It's very close to an actual picture but has just enough touch to allow the fantasy to totally live. Extremely well done!
