    In the end, it's fantasy, and cities in reality are usually a lot more boring than fantasy cities! As long as the city looks like it's believable that's all that usually matters.

    You're right, but I always try to keep it as realistic as possible for me, because fantasy elements come in by itself due to lack of knowledge and thought
    The one thing I learned today: It's good to have a scale from the very beginning, it makes many things easier *g*

    Drew nearly all of the houses and will keep Photoshop closed for today

    Gorgeous! Can't wait to see more! Really nice proportions of streets to buildings and great colours.

    Hah! I was just reading through that about a month or so ago when I was preparing to begin work on my own city (a project which has since been set on the back burner). Great discussion on population and demographics btw; I've been using the Magical Society Guide Mo linked to as well. Just in case anyone is interested, there is a pretty good online city generator based upon this guide which you can fin here.

    Brilliant Schattenherz,
    this will be a great, great city map!

    One question; Do you know how many buildings you have there?

    Thanks for your comments

    Went on with the fields (quite tedious...), some details (mills, circus, lake and little stream) and made an attempt to add details to the water... not really satisfied with it :/

    Looks really nice. I really like the colour palette. I know how you feel when it comes to fields :-)
