    Ok, now for some bigger changes. I have changed the water and am pretty happy with it. I have also done the grass, and am liking it more, but will be doing some more tweaking.

    I have also updated my city walls, and trees. I like the trees much better this way.

    In the south, I am experimenting with changing the building styles. Tell me what you think of the buildings in the southern village. The lighter colored ones represent thatch roofs, and the brown colored ones are wood shingles.

    Yes, that shade of grass is much better.

    Now I am experimenting with different building styles. I am pretty happy with this, but wanted to see what others thought.

    I think your map looks fantastic.

    The shapes look great for your buildings, but the colours seem too saturated for my taste. I would mute them or grey them up or tone them down a bit.

    But that is just my subjective opinion.

    Phil.

    I'm with Phil here, tone down the colors a tad so that they don't stand out so much. It's like they're saying "Hey, look at me". Not a whole lot but a tad. Again, my opinion as well.

    That is looking good, though. Was wondering what you were going to do with the buildings. Love to see it zoomed out (I know, most people want to see it zoomed in! )

    What are the roundish things in the walled area? Tents? Yurts?

    Grain silos. The only reason that I zoomed in that close is because that was all that I have done so far. I am working on the rest of the city now.

    Wow, that detail is fantastic... the layout looks convincing and I like how you worked in some green patches and trees. Looks very convincing.

    I haven't posted anything on this in a while because I was mad at myself. I had done a lot of work to get the city almost finished, and then I was converting a large area over to a smart object, and my computer froze up, so I lost all of my work (about 5 hours worth). I can't believe that I was such an idiot that I didn't save my work. So I set this aside for a while, but I am back on the job now and wanted to post the latest WIP.

    One more option I thought of. I am using the background that I created in Photoshop, and imported it into CC3 and used the CD3 symbols to map the city. I think I like this, but wanted some other opinions.
