There is a pictur in my mind and I hope I can live up to it. Startet with the obvious... a planet. Nothing fancy here, just a notice I will be in this challenge.

No worries mate. Keep it the way it is. Looks like a great start. :)

O.k. Cleared everything up with Jtougas and have got a clear mind again. I went for the starfield tonight. I aimed for an eerie feeling, some foreboding. My survey will be more of a spooky kind, perhaps thinking of Aliens or Call of Cthulhu. We will see how I fit my original picture with this theme. Itīs funy and I should not forget that itīs about mapping. Else I will end up with just a spooky picture ;)

How did you do that?

Really liking the colors here so far. The only thing, and it is a nit-pick of sorts, would like to see a bit more of the planet rather than leaving so much of it in shadows, but will also have to wait and see how you progress with this as the shadowing may serve a specific purpose that has yet to be revealed. Either way, a nice start and looking forward to more.

That is awesome. I love the overlay (I wish I had thought of that.) :)

That definitely helps. Gives some shape to the shadowed area and, again, done in a complimentary color that isn't too harsh.

I agree with Diamond; this makes me wish I was any good at other things than country maps and schematics.

Here is the latest installment of Blank 101, not so blank any more ;) There are very many issues that come to my mind and surely many more that do not. There is some time left and I will hunt them down without mercy. Added a fiery nebula to give the map some color dynamics. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

yeah - thats a very nice piece of work. Looks very professional - you should do a tutorial on how you created that - I would love to see the method behind that !

Really nice! And inspirational...makes me want to go back and re-do mine.

Some minor updates I thought to save to CG. I played a little bit with the witchstar colour and yanked my hair out to fill in text. Tried to create a metallic effect like very fine brushed metal but came out to grainy. THX for the effort, try again ;) Have fun.

Just minor changes. I fear touching it again will break things. Turned out just fine for me. Enjoy.

p.s.: should be a higher resolution than before..

One correction: "my whole live" should be "my whole life".

This is a brilliant map Troedel, absolutely fantastic. In addition to the typo pointed out by rdanhenry, I found a couple more. "Analysation of resonance" should be spelled "Analyzation", and "+++ continous" should be "continuous".

English spelling never was one of my strong points.. THX for pointing out the mistakes.

Why not? It's just like German, except a lot less consistent. :P Comes from stealing words from every language that came within groping distance.

It's never been one of English's strong points either.

Spelling corrections and a little cthulhuoid feature to stay true to the intention. ;)
