Avencourt Update

20 Oct

v_04

Added a few roofs I seem to have forgotten in the Royal Palace district (only district with blue roofs in this update). Also redid the line appearance, layering several images of the map with a different edge style set each time in SketchUp before capturing a screenshot. The resolution is far too low at the moment (only 72 dpi), but I wanted to get an idea of some of the colors I’ll be using, and what brush settings would work to give that “hand-painted in water-color/water-thinned ink” look. I do have a tablet, so the hand-painting part is literal, but I wanted to figure out how I’d like to achieve a good ‘paint over’ effect.

I think this is looking fairly good right now, although I see a few places I need to correct some lines, and I still need to add in the Royal Palace in the north-east corner, the old quarry Basse Mont near the center of map, with Tartarus Prison down in Basse Mont and the Piazza dei Gatti near that free-standing brown-roofed warehouse building. A few other details (like the gates, of course), and some indication of the terrain along the south, and with an increase in image quality to about 300 dpi, I should be finishing this map up.

Now I just need to figure out how to save out a high-quality map from Campaign Cartographer 3, which I should have bothered to figure out awhile ago …
