    Started to make it properly. Here is the floor and walls of the towers and walkways. This is a very big map - its about a gazxillion megabytes so far and I've only started, probably because this one is at 200ppi for the marble detail.

    EDIT:

    Here I tried to make a background - not very successfully.

    Experimenting with ways of showing the five-foot grid on the marble floor using miniature compass roses. I don't know if its too subtle.

    And now I have done the shading I think. My main concern is that my grid might be too subtle. I now need to get a decent background.

    More excellent work Jacktannery !! I LOVE the dragon nests. I like the idea of the compass roses as a grid but for some reason my mind wants to see them as pillars instead. Either way this is very good.

    Thanks jt. I'm going to reuse the original map background for the moment, because it is pretty good, and I might replace it with a cityscape of my own when I make those later on.

    EDIT: added some gargoyles.

    I used a lot of pre-made roofs and an urban map to create the underlay for this. This is at half the normal size. I will now begin work on the interior of the large building.

    After some thought I have decided to double the scale of the map - I always thought I might do this. The walls are a bit too thick, but otherwise it should not make too much difference. Here is the final version of the exterior map (in 2 maps for size) - with a grid. I added a chest by Bogie (thanks Bogie!) in one of the towers.

    And here is the last bit - the interior of the study. Again I doubled the scale. I just need to fix up the transition between the two maps (the last step is a bit lost) but otherwise I think this is done. The potions are supposed to be massive.

    EDIT: added ropes & fixed a couple of errors. Finished now.

    EDIT2: fixed another error, and mounted it onto the previous map. This has to be done in two halves:
