    Awesome job on this. I look forward to seeing it completed keep up the good work. Looks like it took some patience.

    The first thing i have to say is "Wow"!

    I've rarely seen a such detailed city on several levels with such perfect uniformity! I try to draw like that for more than three months but all i can produce is crap!
    My deepest respect for that wonderful peace of art!

    this really is shaping up to be a gorgeous map. I've been wanting to try my hand at something like this for ages now, though always get discouraged - it seems like so much hard work!

    how do you plan on colouring it (if at all) and if So, in what style?

    WIP
    Time to add some colour

    Galastan - hand-drawn city on a mountain-galastan_wip.jpg

    @Vorropohaiah: yes, I'm going to colour it. Roughly the same style as with Val Nevan, I think, but I'm not sure yet.
    @Jordan: just keep at it! And don't rush anything Did you post any of your work on this forum?

    That's really glorious! Create a dozen more, add a few thousand words of history to each one, maybe some filler pictures, and you've got yourself a lovely book you can publish through createspace or Lulu.

    Amazing stuff, really. I have to try something like this (albeit much worse!)

    Oh, Blaidd Drwg!
    Your ideas are a flowery meadow full of butterflies.
    Your pencil is the sledge of map forging.
    Your colors shall be the vision of cartographer's paradise.

    Awesome!! I'd give you more rep but I gotta spread it around this will look mighty fine once you start putting the color to it for sure. So how's the color gonna work, you using hardware (ink / paint / etc) or software (PS / Gimp)?
