Busy Streets - The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia

I have for you a new piece from The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia! With all the monsters complete, it is now time to begin exploring the Grand Bazaar itself. The sixth stop finds on one of the many Busy Streets. For the millions of being that call the Grand Bazaar home there is a constant hustle and bustle to daily life. While there are many modes of transportation for those that can afford it many get around on the power of their feet, or equivalent. This can lead to some areas being very congested throughout the day. If you visit the Grand Bazaar be ready for a hike and you expect to encounter some Busy Streets...

Due to the complexity of these larger full environment pieces I am now working on I have needed to do value studies to make sure I know where I am going and don't lose my way. Doing these value studies has been one of the best course of action on this project and have saved me a lot of headache. Here is the value study for Busy Streets...
