The walled city is now filled, next step, adding some smaller settlements along the roads outside the walls.
After that I will look into some styling, I already tried some stuff and am curious how it will finally end up...
Trying some color and styling ...
How did you do the effect for the cliffs?
I would tone down the saturation, a lot indeed. It looks too garish as it is.
the cliffs are drawn with a simple brush in short strokes perpendicular to the isolines using a standard soft brush some different greys at 20-30% opacity
I really like your style of making a pile of buildings and then placing them. I think I might give it a try.
The little black buildings...are they all just squares or L shaped or random shaped?
I'm probably not supposed to but I much prefer the black one, if the grid lines were less intense. Still in the colour one the feeling one gets is a lot more comfortable because despite the colour intensity it's still not as harsh as the greyscale one.
