love these. i've always loved intricate details on maps, and now i know how to make them.

think you could do a tutorial on 3d cities? (modern/scifi and fantasy if possible)

like how to illustrate a view of an actual city (if you are able to, i'm sure it'd be a hassle to make). not sure if you ever do modern looking stuff, but i figure i'll ask.

for a top-down view there are loads of tutorials on www.cartographersguild.com. if you mean a birds-eye view of a city, this mainly comes down to a lot (and I mean a whole lot) of work. Tricky part with these is perspective, it has to be very tight to make it look believable. I usually use google sketchup to plot the most important buildings in 3d, chose a nice perspective and then export the bitmap to use for reference in Photoshop. Using that, I draw/paint each house the same way as the little tutorials I did. maybe once I have some time :P I can give a try to make a tutorial about that... cheers

I like this way better than the way I learned canyons.:)

I taught myself to do isometric cliffs (or a good imitation of), so I thought I'd just draw two opposite cliffs next to each other. It looks pretty bad.XD But the way you do it is definitely the better way to go.

well, it may work as well, though maybe it's a little harder to shade and get depth when using two opposite cliffs..

Very useful! I'm not very good at drawing these type of landmarks usually, but this would definitely help.
