    Nice style! How are you going to be using this map? VTT, printed out, projected? Detailed tactical or just a general impression of the area? I'm inclined to think it needs more pixels--it would be nice to be able to zoom in on it a bit.

    The crops don't quite match--the road, buildings, and trees all have "pencil" lines, but the crops don't, making them seem blurrier than everything else.

    Hmm... impressionist gaming sounds interesting.

    Oo oo I get to be Seurat (even though he was more of a pointilist).

    While I agree with the comments its very pretty and absolutely great for an encounter map.

    I'd add the comments to your list of things to consider next time.

    Looks good. What are you doing next ! .

    did i forget to say that i liked the map

    my bad


    It is a nice looking map


    and pointillism is a form of impresionism

    i think a cubist map could be interesting

    How about a Dali? The stairs are to the north, but on the map they're to the southeast and twenty feet down...

    Suggestions ?

    Call it finished and play. Its very nice - I like it a lot. Its not very expansive but it could be used multiple times or at least by multiple GM's. More of the same hurrah !
