So I decided to give it a go...

This is the base map, small area in the Black Forest.

I think Itīll get something of a military map but first of all Iīve got to get the terrain right.

Cool Idea and nice start :)

Oooo trolls. I love troll-hunting.

Looks like a great start! By the way, extra kudos (and some rep) for getting that mountain style to look good. I love it in other people's maps but try as I may I can never get it to work for me.

This should be cool! And I'm with Gidde; I can never quite pull off that mountain style either - looks great!

So something evolves. I have some hard times to achieve what I envision and I canīt get it quit right. But thatīs what you get when you enter a challenge without knowing exactly if you can do it. As it is a challenge it keeps me focused. Little steps are better than none. Itīs time to give out credit to ubersuper for the folded paper stuff and Iīll say in general CG Textures for the bench and the paper. Hope you enjoy.

Edit: There is a spelling error that is corrected ( hard instead of heart ). Walks of ashamed ;)

Very Very Cool :)

Is that letter supposed to read, "It hurts my hard" or am I seeing the font wrong?

Looks good though.

Meh, he's a soldier. His sergeant probably taught him to spell. Can't fault him for not being able to spell hand, with, or nailed. :)

Glad to see you getting stuck in Troedel! The map is looking great!

Regarding the the spelling... I hopefully get it right in the end. Thx for pointing out.

After I had a little ( very little ;) ) conversation with lapada I decided to give my art skills a little chance. His project got my envy and there is always some ideal to go for. What the hell, youīve got a tablet, a PC and some imagination. So I scribbled the evening away with just a little piece for my little map. Ladies and Gentleman... my try at my troll ;) I am proud to say, and there may be a little excuse in it, that this is the first time I finished such a thing and did not hit delete at the first chance.

Honestly your troll looks pretty good. :)

On a side note I can't help but think that in so many different stories trolls are so different from each other. In Willow they were little disgusting hairballs. In Warhammer they are giant lanky warty creatures with unwashed 80's rockstar hairstyles. In the Tad Williams book I am reading right now they look like human children with perfectly smooth skin and are not excessively hairy.

Awesome !! :)

That's pretty cool! I like his misshapen horns and ear-ring. :D

"hurt's" should be "hurts" (no apostrophe)

I really like how your towns look like cherry blossom tree branches. Guess they have been in there for a while and it just came to me now.
