The shadows around lights seem weird with pole shadow going up. Instead of shadow, perhaps illuminate the ground more around lights.
After looking at it again, I heartily agree. I changed the original and updated my site. I chose to not illuminate the ground since I read somewhere on the forums people like to do their own illumination in MT which makes sense.
I would make each layer of steps solid or at least break up the uniformity so it looks more like steps (imo). I would also add a slight perspective slant to steps making the base wider. You may have to move the rock to left of stairs for that. Perhaps a small gradient along stairs where the bottom is slightly darker than the top step.
I like this idea, but the "overlook" isn't something I put together (it's from RPGMapShare/SteelRat: http://rpgmapshare.com/index.php?q=gallery&g2_itemId=5012
). I could still modify it in GIMP, but I'm not sure it's worth the pay-off. I'd rather move on and do another map
I have some my creations here: http://gallery.rptools.net/v/contrib/al
I like your style! What program(s) do you use? If you have any tutorials or videos of you creating them?
Thanks again for the feedback everyone.
