Azkendaren by jollyjack Azkendaren by jollyjack
The main location for my "Battle Bunnies" stories.
Azkendaren is a mix (in terms of purpose) of Istanbul, Hong Kong and Jerusalem; a disputed metropolis, made wealthy through trade.

I came up with the whole concept of Battle Bunnies after watching Kingdom of Heaven and playing Assassin's Creed.

What would be the scale of this? How big is the city?

It's early days, yet, so; "as big as it needs to be".
It's not as large as the city that once sat on the same site, though.

Impressive. Very impressive that you made this ^^ Guess when you have to be at the top of your game you have to know how to do stuff like this.

I agree with :iconsanderford: that is a very interesting method of conception. Also I'm diggin' the map (sorry for the throwback term, it was the only one that fit to me). Decently done :3

A city based on Istanbul/Constantinople, Hong Kong and Jerusalem situated in a universe developed after watching KoH and playing AC?

This should be interesting.

Was about to say this looks lot like Constantinople/Istanbul (well its the same name just different language, Constan being Greek for Constantines City, Istanbul being Turkish for the same damn thing!)

Hey! I recognize that place, you did a 3/4 quarter angle landscape of this city.

This place right? If I am right, it has changed somewhat, but I like the new map better the islands to the soutwest give it more depth.
Reply
:iconjollyjack:
jollyjack Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
Yeah. That was the old design, and actually one of the pages from the (stalled) first attempt at a Battle Bunnies comic back in 2007/2008.

Icy-Shiva Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
Well that's okay the new design looks A LOT better. Between the harbor, the island and the parkland overlooking the bridges it has definitely seen some really cool re-imagining. As long as I am not seeing it wrong inside my head, if you did decide to re-work that page into the new lay-out, it would look even more amazing than before.

I love just about every piece of artwork you've ever done (and even when I didn't like something I still know how amazing an artist you are), but more than anything I LOVE your landscapes. (Which is why I remember that old version so well.) I'd kill (or at least severely wound) scores of people to have 1/10th of your talent for drawing landscapes. Keep up the great work!

That looks amazing. The kind of city where anything can happen (and often does) and any sort of character is plausible. All the best settings are like that.

Strongly reminiscent of Byzantium/Constantinople/Istanbul at a glance. Something is incredibly appealing about it.
