@Alan v.Drake: I'm glad to see you are still alive.

And back with a very nice background.

I love your background, Alan v.Drake! It makes me want to explore the rest of the town (and steal the merchant's gold, of course). Great use of the fog, too.

Only two days left! (more or less)

I'm struggling to find enough time to finish my entry so I will just leave it here:



My idea was to draw a medieval cloister. If I manage to finish or at least progress past sketch and shadows, I will edit my post.

Lovely entries everyone!
Nice to see you back, Alan v.Drake. The foggy distant background objects are amazing.

That's a beautiful image, Kastchey, even in its current unfinished state.
If you need I can close the competition some days later than the current deadline. It would be a shame to leave your background unfinished!

I'm swamped so it might not help much... Thanks though, that's kind of you to offer! :)

That's great Flugeldufel! It looks like an early LucasArts game. Lovely entry. There's only one problem: I want to play it!

Here's a quick entry.  :)



Based in a Portuguese medieval town.  (nod)

I've started on a background, could it be possible to extend the deadline one day?

Happy you made it, Cassiebsg! I would love to visit that town, both in real life and in the game. It looks lovely!

Blondbraid: sure! Let's say that I wanted to close the competition today, but I completely forgot to do it. ;) Happy drawing!

@lorenzo: It's Elvas in Portugal. "Listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, Elvas is the biggest fortified city in Portugal and Europe." And also my mom's home town.  ;)

Cassie, that reminds me so much of my own hometown's old quarter ;-D

(images under tag so as not to interrupt the thread)

Spoiler: ShowHide




The architecture here is 15th-16th century colonial rather than medieval, but there's definitely some resemblance!

Cassie: I looked up some photos of Elvas, it's a beautiful town. I think I've also found the square you've used as inspiration!

Laura Hunt: That place looks lovely, what's the name of it? Maybe we should make a "Post your town/city" thread. (laugh)

That's the neighborhood of Vegueta in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria :)

I was in Las Palmas early this year! Lovely place. You could sit by the shore and stare at the waves for hours.

Aw nice! Tenerife tends to get a lot more tourism, so it always makes me happy when people choose to visit Gran Canaria despite being a bit less popular ;-D

Yeah, maybe someday I‘ll find some time for making a game like, uh, „The preposterous adventures of Knighty McKnightface“ or something...

I started a background last night, been busy with my game. Didn't get to finish but I will later today, if there's time.
