• This is a mapmaking competition entry from Pär Lindström. Design notes I decided to make a city map for the competition. The map is done in both CD3 and Photoshop CS5.

  • Not enough detail? Then click here for the extra-large version (caution – big file). Emerisia is a densely-packed port city. Made with the Fantasy Cities Annual of Campaign Cartographer 3.
