    Post Test City Style

    I'm trying to come close to recreating the style of these maps drawn by WB Clarke in the 1800s (more of which on this thread)

    This is still very much a WIP which will eventually become Port Kahardi for the CWBP.

    At the moment I'm just working on:

    a. Ensuring that the city looks credible in the shape and distribution of the buildings (I haven't cut up the big blocks yet);

    b. the city hatching style (I've hatched the sea/river differently) to the reference but I think it looks too big compared to the reference which is much finer; and

    c. the parchment background

    Toff said something very interesting when this map was posted without the hatching and that was that it was difficult to differentiate open spaces from building spaces. Is that still the case with the hatching now in?

    Thoughts, comments and crits very welcomed.
