It's really starting to come alive now that you have a big patch of buildings finished!
This is looking better and better. The streets don't look messed up to me.
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

Wow! Looking very good indeed!
Wow, one of those birdseye city maps. I am impressed by the patiences needed to do such a map.
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.
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.
