    First WIP for the second-last map. This is supposed to be a keep hall with banqueting table and three-sided balcony. I elongated one of Bogie's tables - it might be a bit too fancy. I think I'll try a rougher table tomorrow.

    Second WIP, using a staircase and balustrades uploaded onto the dunjinni forums. It's beginning to come together. I want to add a lot of shields onto this map too, hanging from the balcony and scattered on the floor. I just need to find some nice shield images.

    EDIT - Table added and shading complete.

    I added the shields, however I'm not completely satisfied. The shields hanging from the balcony don't look good, and I don't know what to do to make them better - advice is needed here.

    It looks really nice, but you're right about the shields. I think its a matter or perspective. Looking down at them, we really wouldn't see much detail. Perhaps if you rotated them to be more 'vertical' it would look better?

    Vertical shields is tough to do. I played with this one and it looks Ok. let me know if it works, I can make more.

    Otherwise, the banquet hall is looking good.

    That look great Bogie - how did you get that curve at the top? It looks better than my attempts using the eraser tool.

    I used the image resize to shorten it vertically, then Filter/Distort/Spherize setting it at a negative number (concave). the trick there is the bottom of the shield needs to be near the middle of the canvas. So only a little empty canvas above the shield and more below the shield tip.

    Here are 2 more.

    Then after I did these, I found where the original artist had already made a vertical version of the same one.

    Bogie - that is wonderful. That last one is the best by far - I'll take that and recolour it a few times and use it on the balconies - thanks a million for your help.

    Improved version using Bogie's shield. Are the shields convincing now?

    First WIP for the wizard's study - this is an ice wizard and his study is supposed to look frozen. I'm not sure I got the stairs right. Also the central rose is supposed to be from a ceiling light - perhaps I got the colour off? Or are the edges too sharp? There is something I need to change about it, I am certain.

    EDIT - small improvements:
