    The backgrounds sounds very cool. And with the new map you have a consistent level of detail.

    Or maybe I stick with the black and white...which is more evocative of steam-punk?

    I certainly like that better than the color one. I'm also thinking that maybe a tan with dark brown lines might look good as well ala Ramah's current work.

    I was thinking maybe some kind of copper/bronze-ish tint would help to convey that steam-punk look/feel.

    Yeah, I usually think of a sepia scheme as being the most steampunkish feel to go with.

    I agree with Rythal, sepia would be best for this setting. Along with some "cloud blurring" above some areas of the city. And I would like to see some 3D views of the city in the border of your map .

    Here we go with a sepia version. As for 3 D views of the city...that might be beyond the scope of my talents just now.

    Unfortunately, my grand vision for this project has not come to pass...too much for me to learn at this stage to carry it out, ah well.

    Thanks Aval! I tried some things, but the results were poor. I think of breaking the town down to blocks. The last three pictures look like you have added geometrical figures in different colors and blurred them. I really should have known better that this is not you style! The creation of a complex roof pattern was a very good idea I have never thought of.

    @ Katto Okay. So to make it 3D, what would suit better? If I made the city blocks in vector?
