Papertowns: Lodewater

By TheColclough

Somewhere in an alternate England, Lodewater is a town of craftspeople and merchants, and one of the most important commercial hubs in the region.  Thousands of residents keep themselves busy providing all sorts of goods and services - the financiers and other office workers perched for the most part on the hilltops, overlooking the bustle of the manufacturing areas clustered around the river which serves as one of their transport arteries.

This follow-up to Desmonton (www.deviantart.com/thecolcloug…) took me four-and-a-half years to finish... although that's including some major gaps where I stopped working on it because I didn't think it was really panning out the way I wanted.  I eventually figured out that I'd got the perspective wrong, leaving the original background as a mass of tiny, characterless little bits, so I threw half the town in the bin (metaphorically speaking) and tried again.  A lot of individual buildings survived from the first version, but they've often ended up in very different places to where they first appeared.
