    A remake of Warren's Maple Rushed 6 Map, along with some new perspective after watching some tutorial vids. Definitely had some fun making this, along with the new dimension of perspective grids. Any critique is appreciated! :)

    EDIT1: Updated with the Moon more solid in its dark side, along with some light fading on the front street lights.

    As impressive as always, Dally.
    Which program did you use to make it?
    If I had any criticisms, it'd be that the lampposts look kinda flat and the glow looks kinda bad, although that's probably unavoidable.
    Besides that, stars shouldn't be visible when they're behind the moon.

    I love how you were able to imagine what the rest of the map looked like despite how little of it I showed. How did you manage to make the buildings look like they were three dimensional?

    I used a perspective grid to help me place and shape the map objects like Buildings, separating one side from the other and shape them together with the Skew, Free Transform, & Warp Tools, which means cutting map objects.

    Here is the Perspective Grid I made for the frame to the map:

    Here's the video I watched for it.

    I use Adobe Photoshop. :)

    I love what you did here, the setting is nice! Quite possibly the road lines are a tad bit too big? Otherwise, I see no issues.

    I was thinking of making my own maps but I have no idea where everyone gets their map sprites.

    Thanks Woofles!
    I usually get map sprites in the Maple-Editor's Google Drive Resources
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1gObr1WoA_UOY3D2RafvlmOzneeS6DE_N

    or if you want to find something more recent in KMS, try maplestory.studio , although you'll have to search through it manually in map.wz.
