Brightwater (2016) commission by GLangGould Brightwater (2016) commission by GLangGould
Brightwater is a large and bustling city, home to many diverse races and peoples, and where every alley is steeped in trade, religion and magic.

I have depicted only the old-town of the city centre, and some of the suburbs outside the walls. Within that area, however, are the enclaves of winged elves, the ghettoes of the giantkin and orcish kind, the dwellings of the river gnomes, which cluster around the docks like barnacles on a ship, and the underwater district of the sea elves.

This map was commissioned by J. Benson, and the original concept is his design. I drew this picture by hand, using fine tipped pens and pencils, and then coloured and annotated it in Adobe Photoshop. In creating this map, I used a variety of architectural references, including renaissance Italy, trullo houses (Apulia, Italy), Sweden, Russia and England (as well as inspiration from countless artists)
