    Wow, really nice! The pavement is splendid. And I would never have thought to represent the grass like this ; it looks very good and give a sense of the land levels.

    This is a great map. I like seeing the progress shots as well. Well done.

    Ilanthar - Thanks. I really had to commit to doing the pavers. That's part of why it languished for a while. Working in pencil and ink really makes me have to try new techniques to represent certain things. I wanted to create a more rolling land shape. I'm not completely satified with the result but it would take way too much to change it all to get the effect I was hoping for. Next time.
    Tim - Very much appreciated. I may do more WIPs. I do like the interaction which you don't seem to get with just posting a finished map.

    I tried sketching in some tables and other stuff around the village. Wasn't very happy with it. It doesn't really show well at that size relative to the village.
    I'm kind of at a loss right now for what else should be done with this other than maybe a border and the town info. If anyone has any suggestions - shoot them my way.

    Hmm. Any pastureland around the town, livestock? Maybe a stream of smoke from a chimney (though it looks like summer, so... cook stove), or a blacksmith's shop? Is there a blacksmith? Not that it needs anything aside from town title and info and maybe a border. It looks fabulous!

    Thanks Chashio. That gives me something to think about.
    Normally at this point, aside from text and border stuff, I would probably call it done. I'm just trying to see if there is something more I should do with it. In other peoples view. There's always a drive to finish and move to the next exciting project.

    You're telling me. That's generally my constant state of mind... excepting that you finish more of yours.

    I had some more thoughts on some stuff to do so I'm still working on it.
    Here's an interesting twist... modelling Bourmout in 3d.....

    It will sort of figure into the finished map... in a way.

    Very cool 3D model. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

    This seems like an appropriate time to give you some rep.

    THW

    A few more screenshots of the 3d process in this post.
    Thanks THW. The first thing was to get a better sense of the town in 3d. It has helped me to realize some thing I do slightly wrong with overhead town layouts. Nothing major but when doing roofs that overhang/project out quite a bit [2-3' overhang] I still draw some features like stairways that really would not be seen. Or only the edges and not much of the steps. I need to do a bit more work on land contours too.
    Anyhow, here are a few more shots of the 3d progress.

    Then from the north

    Last from the south

    I went with dark roofs for continuity while I work on the model. Eventually they would have the proper coloration as in the map.
