I've got a fantasy map of the tip of a continent. There's a lot of negative space in the east, which I've decided to fill with 2 circle inserts, but I can't decide what to put in them. I could have town maps of important cities, I could map island chains to the south/east, or I could include some illustrations. What would you include?
The city needs to be large without feeling like it has empty space. It is industrial, but also has the feeling of a normal fantasy city. I don't want the city to be so large and bulky that it is impossible to see. I have tried to look up pictures of large city maps, but nothing is what I am looking for.
I'm in the process of revising a map and I have searched high and low for tips on the correct usage of port cities and whatnot. Naturally I just place a port at any city near a body of water, but I feel like that would end up being costly and unfeasible when it comes to plausibility. Does anyone have any tips regarding this issue? Any help would be appreciated.
