    Map Shkodra Fortress (first city map)

    Ok here is my first City Map, I hope you like it. I am still unsure in this field, its far away from my Arden style maps so this one was a realy tough map.
    As always I am happy about any feedback from the Guild. Thanks

    Holy mapping skills, Batman!

    I love the contrast between the natural elements and the man-made ones.

    The orderly rows of buildings within the walls gives it a sense of military order - like a Roman settlement - rather than the organic flow you see in later periods. I don't know if that is your intention, but to me it says "Soldiers live here, not civilians".

    Look forward to stealing your ideas...erm, I mean seeing more in this vein.

    Seconded. It's beautifully executed, though.
