Absolutely stunning. The amount of analysing of old maps, must have been intense. You've captured the authenticity perfectly! :headbang:

Superbe.
Ils t'on fourni des reproduction d'anciennes cartes ? Ou tu as du faire le travail de recherche documentaire toi même ?
MaximePLASSE's avatar
Merci :) J'ai fait les recherches moi-même.

C'est très impressionnant. Cela doit prendre un temps fou !
Comment t'y es-tu pris ? Des livres ? L'accès à des bibliothèques publiques ?

MaximePLASSE's avatar
J'ai plutôt choisi des archives numériques pour trouver mon bonheur ;)

Impressionné.
Je cherche à l'occasion des cartes de Paris très anciennes, genre XIIIieme siècle. Aurais-tu un tuyau ? Un lien ?

Google est ton ami ;) ;)

C'est vrai que cette carte est absolument magnifique.
Pas trop difficile de trouver des sources décrivant Paris à cette époque ?
MaximePLASSE's avatar
Merci :) Non, l'époque est quand même pas mal documentée et j'ai pu bénéficier des apports de l'auteur du jeu, plutôt calé niveau histoire ;)

How many lives do you have to be able to draw so many maps ?
You could make them ugly at least ! But on the contrary, you keep bringing amazing artworks !
That's brilliant ! unfair, but still brilliant !
Well done !

Marvelous. I am a formally trained cartographer, and this looks very good to my eyes. I am sure your commission was very happy with it.
