    Map October Entry: Tchenzai Village

    My first go at one of these challenges. This was done using a somewhat crippled version of Campaign Cartographer 3 with City Designer 2 (I don't have 3 yet). I was after a vaguely oriental feel to the map. I present it for your viewing pleasure.

    Cool, another new entry. The more the merrier.

    Lol that popped into my head when i saw the map, cause it reminds me of the Emerald City from The Wizard of Oz. Looks great tho! just wondering if you could add some color variations.... but if not, thats fine with me, cause I still think it looks great

    Good stuff. My only issue is that the light on the roofs is at odds with the shadows the buildings cast. Otherwise - good map.

    Not sure I'll have time to fix the roof shadows but now you have pointed it out it is obvious.

    It's a pretty common mistake everyone makes at one time or another. Sorry I didn't catch it earlier. Good luck with the contest!
