Very cool sketch Woekan! Can't wait to see this one in its full glory
My new project:
The Faircrest mage tower.
Its a tower in the north-east part of this city. (The white tower in the little park, with the lake.)
Here is my basic first sketch. I'm going to make a digital version with photoshop.
Gorgeous sketch! If was me I'd call the map done!
Thanks, Here is the first WIP
The sketch took 3 hours, the first WIP took 2 hours and is done in photoshop.
I'll make the outside view of the building first, and then i'll do the maps.
Any tips or advice for this? I know it isn't exacly mapping, but i''m going for a certain style of adventure map.
It looks fantastic! Looking forward to the maps as well.

That's fantastic! Dude, you gotta hook us up with a tut. Tried to rep ya but gotta spread some love, hopefully I can by the time the maps are done.

I threw some rep your way 'cause I love drawings like that (I almost like the sketch better than the final result!)

The Photoshop looks too "new" for lack of a better term compared to your hand drawing. Great work on both though.
I'm hacking my way into the cartographical realm with AutoRealm, AutoCAD, GIMP, and Google Sketchup as my tools!

Very nice. I actually prefer your hand drawn sketch style too. You can clearly draw. Have you got a tablet you could use to do these drawings directly in photoshop?
The one thing that sticks out is the tile pattern on the turret. The vertical lines should all come from the peak rather than being exactly vertical.
Looks good so far.
