    Wip WIP New Avalon - steampunk commission

    Hi all,

    So, after Dragonsmouth, here's New Avalon, the second city map commissioned by Silverhold Studios for their kickstarter setting Eternity : Steel and Steam, planned to be launched early 2014. As usual I'm starting with the buildings blocks layout.

    Added colors and worked on a few details. For the sake of consistency, backgrounds and frames will be the same on all the city maps of the commission.

    Thanks Leord and Lyandra! Updated with all floating islands filled, bridges and chains that connect islands each other and to the "surface" below, a few extra details and district borders added.

    Great as always, i personally don't like the style of the buildings' edges very much, but the frame and the cartouche and the parchment texture are beautiful I don't know how much freedom you have, but a thing that occurred to me was that some shadow would help with showing that the islands float. It might look a bit corny, but maybe worth trying?

    Yes indeed I'll give it a shot to see how it goes. About the buildings, maybe it's because those are mostly blocks rather than individual ones? Or personnal tastes...

    A few changes onthe map : tweaked a few minor stuff after discussion with the client and added skytrain lines. I also tried some deeper shadows on the floating islands but the client prefered the lighter ones.

    The map is now finished and you can take a look at it there. Thanks for the comments!
