Earlier this year, in January I believe, we started another community project over on the Guild.
This one was an extension of the Guildworld project begun in 2016, except now we would map the City of Guild.
It started with a challenge idea by guild member Mouse but grew quickly - www.cartographersguild.com/for…

I have finally finished my section, sort of. I will be doing more with parts of it... but those are underground. ;)
I had fun with including many Guild members in the map, creating new characters for them and giving them places to live and jobs.
I made many of them funny tongue in cheek sorts of things and generally had a good time with it.... till I had to do all that labeling. :O

Enjoy and check out the threads over on the Guild too. I have a wip thread over there -  www.cartographersguild.com/sho…

Truly, your deeply-detailed cartography work puts Google Maps to shame. Seriously, the intricate buildings, lively colors, subtle shifts in perspective, landscaping detail, and especially the shadows make this wonderful little city really pop. If I could take a few hours to study it down to every detail I'm sure I'd be even more impressed with the style, detail, and amazing thought put into the layout and directory. On top of all that – literally – is how you made the overlay text labels show so nicely without being obstructive or obnoxious; they add a lot to the charm.


Thanks for sharing yet another of your fantastic creations.


P.S. How did you get the cool dragon to sit still so long while you drew this? ;)

Thank you FS :iconsmile--plz:
Doing subtle but readable text is a large part of the difficulty.

As for getting Wally to sit still....
I had a rabbit friend of mine read Wally a story. ;)
