"Arthud" at night
Hello, Guild members, and friendly helpers! Here is the first project I've made... a village called Arthud. It might be already quite obvious, but I followed the steps of a tutorial made by Lerb (or Larb, I don't know). I have to accept that many things I copied exactly as the tutorial said, and I shouldn't do that, although I think it is justified since it is my first project ever. Don't worry, won't happen again. Also it is a way to put at least something in these threads before I do any big project.
Village name: Arthud
Pays tithe to: Kingdom of Learth
Location: Road between the cities of Learth and Vaardun.
Population: 107; 46 men, 61 women.
Founded: 93 years ago.
Main source of food: Fishing
Number of Taverns: 1; "The Drunken Fisherman"
Well, all I ask of you is constructive criticism. Feel free to tell me whatever you like; question, comments, etc.
And maybe you are wandering what my "big project" is. Well... I plan on mapping (larger scale than this, of course) most of the main cities of Westeros (from Game of Thrones), also making some continent-scale maps of my own.
I think it has turned out great and I am glad people are finding my tutorial useful. I am also guessing you are using a mouse rather than a tablet pen.
By the way there is nothing wrong with following the steps precisely. One of the main aims of the tutorial is to show people techniques I use for my maps. Once you know them you can easily change/adapt them to your needs. As long as you picked up some things along the way then that is all that matters.
As for drawing big cities using this style... well I have done a few. It is very very time consuming I must warn you... =P
Your map is really nice, Kobell, and it doesn't look like your first work. It's a great work and if you followed Larb's guide step by step with these results, than Larb did a great job with his guide too
