This is the reworked and redesigned version of the City of Northgate. This was a pain to make and took longer than I thought it would. Add that to the fact that I honestly haven't had any time to put on it this months, because of just general school stress.

this is a work of art! i would gladly pay you to be able to see a higher resolution of this, so that i can read the legend and have a deeper understanding of what you made! thanks

I also have a question, not criticism at all just wondering if there is a lore type reason as to why the upper, lower commons and slums are all located at the water front? from a logistical point that would be where the dock hands, shipwrights and merchants would be located and maybe some warehouses for storage. I like the deadmans  rock being there, with out context this would be an Alcatraz style prison for the criminally convicted or some form of magical prison for those who have wronged society. The fact that the upper, lower commons and slums all exist to the south almost give the city an image of pushing the rabble to the ocean away from civilization.

Love the maps BTW!

I too would like to see this in full. Thank you for the past few years of great work, loving the full map with the expanded West continent on it! As you probably can tell its been a while since I popped by your website and Deviant Art page. But nice to see the new works going on!

I still have the old Ostmere map with the provincial lines on it! :)

Anyways back to the original ask, I would love to get my hands on a high res version of this the guys would literally shit a brick. Northgate is our hub! This is in the High marches right?!

Incrediable work! It's so cool I'm just staring at its details for more than two hours...
I wonder if I can see full resolution somewhere? Want to read that fluff things in the bottom, but can't see it mostly=(

oh my gawd, it would be so awesome if someone would make this a 3D-Multiplayer-Map for a Game like Battlefield, it would be so awesome.

Okay I know I just commented on one of your other images so I apologize in spamming you but how in the hell did you manage this and do you have a tutorial you either suggest or made or your own accord?

Because this... for city maps this is beyond compare. This just speaks of a city that is truly both immense and alive and you can see it in the how the roads swerve, how the buildings are cluttered...

No tutorials to speak of, unfortunately. I don't really make use of tutorials, and the guides I've written don't cover city maps, on the account that I don't often make maps like this since they're so time consuming and tiresome. I did use a number of other city maps for reference though, so I more or less just took note of what I felt was relevant, like the cluttered houses and roads and so forth. Other than that I drew and coloured everything by hand.

oh, I love this so much,
 I also want to do a map of a big city, but it seems to be a incredible amount of patience and work required to create something like this

Looks nice though the map itself is really dark.
