Fantasy Town Map - Arlridge
« on: February 05, 2014, 12:36:18 AM »
Thought I would share a map I made of a fantasy town. This was really just an excuse to play around in GIMP and have something else to add to my portfolio on DeviantArt: http://cirias.deviantart.com/.

Let me know what you think! :)

Looks really cool, but (there's always a but ;)) in a medieval/fantasy setting a town would be much closer to the river. I'd say a bit more to the right, in the bow of the river would be the most logical place for it. :)

Before I even saw this comment I thought most towns get built around a river/ main focal point of a town. This looks a little like the houses are facing away from it and doesn't feel like the main focal point.
