Thanks, peeps ^^
It is indeed mostly a matter of planning and patience and much less of having drawing skills.
I've thought of using a grid, but since the buildings' orientations are always different I thought it wouldn't really pay off. Also: I'm not terribly good at photoshopping and I'm not really sure how to get rid of the grid. And the paper I'm using is quite good, and I realy love drawing on it
Here's another update. Small in terms of square inches covered, but large in terms of time spent/wasted
I now regret drawing the castle first. It was supposed to become the 'center piece' of the city, so to speak, but I'm afraid it will look very shabby when compared to what I imagine to be the wizards' school ... Nuts
the city is situated on a hill, with the castle at the top on a steep incline. The rest of the city is supposed to gently slope upwards towards the steep part with the castle. I'm not sure how to draw that, so any advice you good people could give me, would be very welcome indeed!
