    Post Horus temple of Edfu

    Hey,


    Here is my first map on building/structure mapping. It's the Horus temple of Edfu. It is an existing building.

    What do you think?

    Nice - love the background, looks like papyrus or maybe linen.

    Good job there. That is a Skookum map!

    Very nice. Just a couple of comments. I'm slightly off put by the flowery border - it reminds me a little of very twee wallpaper. I was also wondering about the heiroglyphs - don't they get read vertically? Actually scratch that, it seems from a quick wikipedia search that they go both ways.

    This is a great map. I love the background and the clear simplicity of the black lines. Beautifully done. Have a little rep for your first building.

    Edit: It seems I need to be a little more promiscuous in my repping.

    I like how the temple is roughly Archaic Classical/Egyptian in the overall floorplan, with the colonnade (pronaos) in the front and the inner sanctum (naos) in the back. Kudos!

    I'd lose the flowers too but keep the color slabs border...they're beautiful.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
