    It's really starting to come alive now that you have a big patch of buildings finished!

    They don't even stand out now. I can't find anything that is glaring. Maybe one wavy roof, but anything else I could see being intentional.

    This is looking better and better. The streets don't look messed up to me.

    I agree, now that I'm used to it. I was hoping it would work that way, and it does, as long as you don't take a good hard look at each individual building

    Latest update. I did a border first. Maybe not the wisest decision, but I needed to do something different fort a while.
    And then there's the cathedral ... I think I've overdone it. It was meant to be big, but not Albert Speer big. I got so hung up on drawing the thing (octagonal groundplan in isometric projection, aaaargh), that I lost sight of the bigger picture. I think I'm just going on with it and if I still feel it's to fracking huge when the pen drawing is done, I will scale it down in photoshop before I start colouring.

    Thanks for the kind words, motivational rep and advice so far! You've been a great help

    i like the border - looks tedious though!

    EDIT: what size is the paper? looks too big to be A4 but not big enough for A3

    @Schwarzkreuz: it is indeed mostly a matter of patience, yes
    @Vorropohaiah: the border was VERY tedious. I'm glad it's over with. The drawing is on A3.

    Fabulous map! Your tiny little people make me smile. Though that one by the bottom gate, on a horse? The horse looks like it's missing its head.

    This is wayyyy cool. I would love to do a map like this but I don't think I have the patience for it. I've been trying to psych myself up for something like this. Color me impressed.
