Invention of Writing (working title) - working on the 3D world
My curved cartoon plane of a world has simple but evocative sets for the following masterful writing civs, from left to right: Tenochtitlan, a hybrid Maya city, Rome, Etruscan town, Athens, Crete, Egypt, Mesopotamia (pictured), India (pictured), Himalayas & SE Asia (mostly in frame), China, Korea, Japan. Phoenicia and the Mediterranean basin will need their own separate world (a separate "scene"). The world's big enough that zooming out makes everything look tiny. This seemed like a good distance to give you an idea of what one piece of the world looks like as it turns. Back to work!
