    Default Oraven - Mirghor - Fantasy map

    Hi guys,

    Here's a new map for Oraven, the city of Mirghor, located in the Red Moors. Just the once will not hurt, I went on a geometric layout design. The city was built after the two main religious symbols of the Blood Moon (main and powerful cult in the Red Moors). It's hand-drawn in Photoshop at 8,5x11" size.

    I like the bridge

    This must have been a very deliberately laid-out city! The form reminds me of some of the prominent, distinguished cities of the Lord of the Rings.

    Would like to have seen more of the layout surrounding the cities, to know whether it would be farms or forests. I could easily see this city on a precipice as well.

    My favorite part has to be the translucent layout guides though... nice to incorporate something like that into the map
    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.

    Really a nice idea to use symbols as base for a city. Well done!

    Wow Max that looks great. I've done a "circular" city once before and struggled with getting the layout right. Yours looks perfect. Have some rep !!

    I'm a big fan of symbols/logos and I fond the idea excellent! I'm gonna keep that in mind if I ever do a city map.

    I have a preference for the smaller part of the city, the design is really nice, uncommon and natural at the same time.

    Very nice map ! Do you know the meaning of the gate's names ? And why gates of the smaller part of the city do not have names ?
