Air Shops - 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 seventh and final stop finds us at some of the Air Shops. Not all being choose to conduct their business on the ground, or to consort with ground walkers in general. For those with the abilities or means there are a number of shops that hover over the the Grand Bazaar ready for business. Hire yourself a Lammergeier Transport and head for the skies for a visit to the Air Shops...

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
Air Shops...
