But given that it's not a Jamie piece, I have to ask: How much of it is canonical?
Also, that tower top seems a little narrow for a trebuchet emplacement.
Nothing in the fan art should be taken as canon. But Rykka did strive for accuracy. She and I decided the ledge they're on is a landing between flights of stairs up to the top of the main tower.
Hah! That was the first thing I realized upon inking it, which did prompt a discussion about it with Balder. Loving every little scrap of detail we get about the world as much as anyone here, I knew good and well that others would notice it right off the bat. (Which the very first poster did!) Thankfully, Balder saved me from scrapping the whole thing with his excellent suggestion of it being a walkway on the way to the tower. Thanks again Balder, for that, and the privilege of being able to submit it.
I know the city design is not canon, there is pretty much no way it could be, but that is how I see it in my
head, which is the best I could hope to offer. I'm sure everyone see's the narration a little differently, I am honored to have been able to offer you a piece of my personal mind's eye of the Capital.
