You may have seen in previous posts I have altered from a top down view when player D&D online to a more 3D, stage set type view. As such I have been painting/modelling some backdrops that I can use.
Here are the two latest I have made, one for forest adventures and another for city/town type urban games.
With other terrain in front they do a pretty good job of creating a backdrop with 3D elements to bring them to life.
Again I would like to mention DMG as without his inspiration I would not have thought of this.
This one below will do for now but I need to do some work on the roof lines and especially the far left side as I just didn't do a very good job on the perspective.
With houses in front it works well enough.
However I have been experimenting with printing pictures I have taken which I can blow up and print over several pages, these may well give a far easier way to achieve the same result. Another post when I have some success with that.
