Bourmout [uncolored] with perspective by SirInkman Bourmout [uncolored] with perspective by SirInkman
I have a WIP thread going over at the Cartography Guild site for the color process for Bourmout and while working on that I decided that this setup would be a nice attempt. So I did a model of the town to get a feel fro the building heights and such. Then drew up a pencil version to use with the map. I will be trying to do something similar but more involved with the color version.
Here's the WIP thread - www.cartographersguild.com/tow…

Other maps and assorted stuff....

The perspective really adds a nice touch.

This is done far too rare. I mean the perspective view. If there's a perspective view you get a feel for a city. A bird view map is not so important. In my whole RPG Gamemaster time I've never used a map to show the group where the mad man lives...

Thanks Will. :)
I agree. I think it really helps make a connection and feel for the place.

I love the way you do your colors but you could always go a little more wiled and make them non local color. :)

Do you mean something like yellow for grass instead of green? Or more like magenta for grass? ;)
[serious question though]

Either or... Just build a color scheme around one. Maybe a triadic color scheme?

Well, the color version is most of the way done already but I will consider that for future pieces.
Sometimes I try odd colors but they don't seem to go over as well with people.

I do need to start planning my color schemes before I start laying down color. I usually just start in and then think about it later which I know is the wrong approach. I just want to get started - patience and planning. Long slow lessons. ;)
