    Post Rosencrantz - Noob Makes Town



    My first town. I made it in Illustrator, so I haven't made textures yet. I'm going to add trees and woods later.

    Impressive first map...especially in Illustrator, which I can't get to do much of anything at all for me. Have some rep for posting a map right away (and a good one at that). Looking forward to seeing it with textures, trees, etc.

    The buildings appear to float because the shadows don't connect to the corners of the buildings (always happens with a drop shadow) but otherwise a nice looking village. Good job.

    I hadn't noticed the shadow issue but I see it now. It looks like it's only with some of the buildings...looks like you extended the shadows for most on the left side already. I'm assuming you did that intentionally anyway, as they're clearly not straight dropshadows.

    It looks very promising. Can't wait to see it with trees and other textures.

    Looking good so far (other than the shadow issue).

    Thanks for the feedback. I worked on the shadows a bit and added the trees. Are the trees cheesy???

    I'd say they look remarkably good.

    The only ones that seem a little funky to me are the largest single trees, because they're so perfectly round. Maybe merge in some other slight "bumps" so they're a little less uniform?

    I think your stands of trees came out very nicely. If those are mostly made by merging together the larger tree circles (looks like it) then maybe throw in a couple of smaller ones as well.

    Looking good.

    I think it works pretty well! Have some more reputation.
    Mearrin is right that some variety in the shapes of the trees might make the map look a bit more realistic.

    I manipulated a few of the trees, but got bogged down in the celtic border.

    Thanks for the rep!
