    I've been worn out lately and combined with a soft deadline this has taken me longer to do than I feel it should. However, I am still making progress on it when I have the time and energy.

    Here is an update. Pretty much everything is subject to change. I already plan to redo the one big building as I'm just not knocked out with how it looks. Too much like an apartment complex to me. I also plan to texture the buildings a tad. And finally I plan to do some more shading on the cliffs.

    I think that the building lines are too thick compared to the rest. Overall, looks pretty good, though.

    looking good, but I'm with Ascension on the building lines - they are a little heavy

    Yeah, I will be concentrating on the city area next so I will see how it goes. Hopefully, I'll get into this today.

    My only tweak is to have the ravine extend a bit farther out with the end being open enough for a mule or horse to get through.

    I really like how the terrain has come alive.

    Added some texture to the buildings. Still might fiddle with the line thickness but I'm not sure if there is a lot I can do, that's just how my pencil came out.

    I have to carry the canyon off the top of the page next but not sure if I'll get it done tonight or not, going to eat dinner in a second.

    ps. Still have that pesky thumbnail issue

    One small tweak, perhaps a small lean to on the top of the front tall building? Thinking just goal post sort of poles with a blanket stretched out. Or a couple of them without the blanket for drying racks? Not sure if that is too small of a detail to add and still keep the great sparse look this has. That is why I rely on experts

    Latest update. One more saturated than the other, your choice.

    Personally, I think the more saturated version looks better. But both are good.

    I like the more saturated also, to my (not quite normal ;0 ) eyes it looks more natural.
