    Wonderful stuff! Absolutely gorgeous.

    Not sure if it bothers you or not but there is a tree located at no. 7 where you can see the wall through it. Also, I may be reading it wrong but there is a diagonal line that doesn't look like it's supposed to be there just up and to the right of no. 18 going through the aquaduct. Nitpickers ahoy!

    Gorgeous! Though I admit to finding the plain version even better than the coloured one! Have a bunny star!

    It does, doesn't it? My dip pen decided to go blotty on me when I started writing and couldn't seem to clean it well enough. I've replaced the writing now with something digital. Looks better, I think, even though the kerning is a bit off at times.

    Haha, nice how people look that closely. Yes, they did bother me. They're gone now. As are a few others you didn't find. Thanks

    Anyways, it's done! I decided against colouring it, in the end. It didn't work. I think that's because the walls are the most common element in the drawing (as opposed to the red roofs and green fields in Val Nevan) and the yellow/grey makes the map look kind of boring and drab. I might one day find a better way of colouring it, but I'm calling it a day now.

    Thanks again for all your thoughts, input and support. You've been a great help!

    True. I've been looking for something else, but I can't seem to find one I like. That's why I tried to do the lettering myself, first.

    You're looking for a handwriting one right? around which century style?
