    Wip October Entry: Griffons Quarter

    Well this is my first try to create a town map actually so this should be a nice experience for me

    This is my first WiP to give you an idea what I plan to do. Please feel free to comment. I'll try to give the town an autumn feeling.

    The houses are from the Dundjinni forums as is the tree and the fences. I plan to use more of them.

    The map itself is done in GIMP.

    No not a bad sign at all, folks don't seem to be commenting as much on this months challenge.

    I was waiting until I saw a bit more before I made any comments. I like what I see so far, nice to see a bit of autumnal colors.

    for an autumnal setting I would de-green the grass ground covering just a tad. Looks a little spingish

    One does not get to use the word "Autumnal" enough
    Something witty and pithy

    My back has been out for a few days so I've been here...just responding to anything overt sticking out. This is looking good but I'd shrink the texture of the pebble paths...they look to big to be a real pebble path. Nice job so far and maybe add some detail in the chimney smoke...some gray or something.

    Wip WiP Update

    Ok, another update here.

    I agreee Ascension, the pebbles were to big. I am gonna worry about those details like smoke at the end. I just wanted to add some to see how looks like.

    In this WiP I added some market stands, I hope they'll fit in.

    This is turning out nicely Sage.

    I think it would make more sense to have the market stands grouped around a central area or at least grouped closer together.

    Heh SG, you know I thought exactly the same. Though I am not sure if I will solve it but not all buildings allready have a fixed location (like the fountain that I allready moved around).

    My biggest problem is, that I dont wanna have a dominating market place and if I would group it up in the middle I guess that would happen.

    Yeah, you are right about that, it was just an idea anyway. Stick with your "vision".
