    Cities are notorious for being among the more difficult and time consuming of subjects to map. Yet with his most recent Yphyrion piece Max has captured the subject with admirable (and enviable) ease and grace. Max's work has always been of a professional level of quality and this is no exception. This map is must viewing for anyone wishing to create their own city map, to those wishing to improve upon their technique, or to those who simply have an admiration for fine maps.

The city layout layout was first quickly sketched on paper then drawn in PS. Then all the job was done in PS, including hand made border.

    Top grade work, mate! It has an absolutely great feel to it, right down to the inscriptions beneath the border.
