Xan'orthras by TargonRedDragon Xan'orthras by TargonRedDragon
This is a view of the kingdom: Xan'orthras the capital city of Shivanian Tribe, and largest city on Lizardland.

The city is built on the northwest of Lizardland at the vast ocean where it is far away enough from Ta'zan Tribe at the west. The land is mountainous, composed of jungles and swamps where Shivanian lizardmen love to dwell.
However, the area of the capital city has less swamp and jungle than that in the Great Swamp.

concrete houses in populous area are shaped trapezoidal, while huts in rural area are made of sticks and hay. Most trees are not cut out when it's impractical to torn away the forest lands of nature. Usually, only in legal areas where they can produce lumber.

The kingdom is separared into four areas: and it is usually covered in trees and swamps. Outside the kingdom is called the "Lower City" it's mostly the poor areas and rural grounds where industrious lizardmen can work on farmlands in the plains. Swamps and bogs flow upon it. The "Middle City" is a commercial area between Lower City and Upper City. Ctizens sell goods and proceeds in shops and markets. The "Upper City" is where the rich citizens are, there are taller structures, oberservatories, libraries, expensive schools. Beyond it is the Shivanian Fortress where King Corus, his noble family and royal guards live.

You can't see Hotara and Skaro there...they live in the Great Swamp at the south of this area.

That is a really well done landscape/cityscape! I love rings/city quarters as they ascend the mountain, as well as the trapezoidal home there in the lower right. The stone bridge with the big lizards on either side is a wonderful touch, as is the gnarled tree just before it. Everything looks very lush and inviting. I'd love to go visit there. :-)

This pic does have the similarities of the Medieval times or at least just prior to the Renaissance times in terms of setting. I like the interesting fortified mount with all the houses below, like one does see in the Alps of Europe, like north Italy. I can say the same for how you have the lake here as well as the mountains press right up to it, and not the gradual shore line build up, this is a great pic. :) :thumbsup:

Well, some buildings are a little bit bent... but that's nothing to worry about. ^^" Maybe, the tall building on top of the hill should be corrected, so that the walls are vertically! :D
But overall a pretty interesting landscape with lots of different huts, buildings and elements of nature (such as trees and grass).

Ahh, the walls of the tall building has to be vertical because of the distance. :)
Thanks for comment ^^

This really did turn out be a beautiful scene, has a nice scale.

The trees are also worth a definite mention in setting a mood
of a peaceful looking community.

My monitor is kinda bright so its impossible to say if extra shadowing is needed for contrast.
