    Some more progress. I will never finish this if I try to do it all by hand. I wrote and applied some selective photoshop actions to give the roof tops more depth. I think that they worked fairly well although I notice that some of the buildings I thought were selected, have been missed and I accidently created a bunch of 'transparent buttons' in odd places, but I think I managed to get rid of them.

    Anyway, here is the latest installment.

    Look like some of the buildings along the 'southern' wall have lost some of their details.

    Looks cool! I can't identify the building next to the castle in the NW. Looks like a carousel

    It is meant to be the Lord Mage's residence.

    @ JT. Actually I have a lot more planned on this baby. I want to label the districts and streets directly and also have a legend on the right.

    I have now completed the colouring. Nit-picking encouraged

    I'm really liking the variety of rooftops here. To be nit picky, the jetties look too similar to me, same shapes and colours.
    I can easily see myself wanting to borrow this for my own campaign!

    I like it very much! Have you tried to add a bit of depth to the coast or perhaps a soft brownish stroke here and there?

    I think it looks superb. I love the little windy streets, the small courtyards, the little neighbourhoods; the whole thing just feels right.

    Just one question though: In the lake you have what looks like a half submerged jetty in the top left...is that what it's meant to be?

    @ Crayons. Good point, I agree and I will look at a bit more variety.

    @ Katto. I haven't even started thinking about how I am going to handle the coast. I guess I will rough it up a bit and add a glow and stroke.

    @ Ravells That jetty is a mistake born of trying to reduce the number of layers and maybe missing a colour select step. I will fix it.

    Thanks to each of you for your comments.
