As you can see in the before and after pictures, I've also toyed with the idea of shading the roofs of the houses. It was something i had considered early on and when Winston Boyce also mentioned it as a possible addition at one of the meetings last year, it was something that i would keep in mind upon the final revision of the map and all of the heritage image placements (separate images like the recently added Dunluce Parish shown below)
I believe there is enough in the orientation panel for the sightseer to make the most out of their time in Bushmills and look forward to getting it all put in place.
While I'm at it, a word on the non-repro blue mechanical pencil leads.
Hand drawing a map takes time, and you can probably see this from the videos i've posted last Summer when illustrating the initial sketches. Originally i planned on bringing about a sort of "general idea" of the town, which explains the oft crooked roads in the original (although no one has actually mentioned those) but i wanted to tidy it up to the best of my ability and that's where i'm at at the moment. All being well it should be done by the beginning of the week.
