    Default Dorun Village



    I need advice about water and tree's if you would be so kind?
    I used the photoshop town Tutorial by Ascension.
    Here's also a close up of the village. (perhaps town if I figure out the population and its too big to be a village)

    I love hedges I even added flowers.

    What kind of water and tree help do you need? I think the water looks fine, shrug. Tress I never really mastered in this style yet so there's a lot of room for experimentation there. Your little gardens/hedges look great.

    It might just be me, but the wakes from the bridge pillars seem to run completely parallel to the pillars, even though the river itself bends right after. Shouldn't the wakes follow the path or get dissipated by the changing current? Another thing that is missing if it's appropriate is that water flows back together after going around an obstruction, creating eddies or whirls. While those might not be visible on this scale (especially if the current isn't running very fast), the wakes don't appear to make any move toward rejoining after the pillars.

    But I'm definitely no water expert. This is merely stuff I've seen in a much smaller scale long ago.

    The version without filters looks much better, and I love the one with paper background. Though it does not look hand drawn at all (as you would suppose on paper) and is not as clear as the colored versions, atmosphere and colors are great!
    The "Player Edition" is good, too - but maybe choose another script? There are some cool (and readable) ones at dafont.com ...
    My suggestion for the trees would be to make those "bumps" bigger - roughly as big as the houses or so. When you look at a satellite picture in google maps you may notice that the shape of single trees in woods often shows quite clear at the scale of your maps.
