Perfect.

Just how I'd imagine Balmora to look like if it wasn't downscaled like it was in the game.

Heh, re-playing this, doing some random googling, and come across this. Very well done, recognized Balmora even as a thumbnail! Impressively done! Very natural and authentic looking!

This is one of the best artworks I've ever seen. Breathtaking. Bravo, you have my admiration... and my envy hehe.

Please, tell us you are working on some more aerial views of Morrowind (the best game ever, btw)

P.D.: mmm... have you read that the Imperial City holded shelter close to a million citizens? I wonder how the "real" IC would look like...

Thank you!
But I remember that the wall is almost absent in game. Besides Balmora is the city of traders, opened for everyone. While Ald'ruhn is another story.
