This month the challenge was simple - take this silhouette and turn it into a map:

37201

The map could be anything from a linked system of stars to an archipelago of pirate islands. And the challenge entries did not disappoint! This month we have 16 entries. Take a look through the maps on the challenge thumbs thread:

Vote for three entries, and make sure you rep those you vote for.

The voting will end on the 22nd of July (in 4 days), and thetriumphant winner will receive the silver lite compass, bragging rights and $40 in store credit from Profantasy!

Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic set of entries.

As it is my first time in a challange I need to ask something:

-Can I (and anyone that made a map for the challange) vote?

Yeah, me too! It's my first challenge and I am very exited too see the result, not because I entertain any hopes of winning but because there are so many maps in so many styles, I am curious how the voting goes!!! Good Luck everyone !

You "check" 3 boxes (you have 3 "votes" to cast) and click vote.

I voted for junjul's treasure map because its so charming, streetwise luxor for using it in a context i didnt expect, and technically uninteresting because its downright hilarious.

Also, whats up with all the J's and L's in the titles?

The J's and L's all probably come from the words June/July spelled differently( Ex. JunJul, LujJun)

Lots of good stuff here, hard to pick three when I like at least six. I picked Jax first because I like his lil cities a lot...that could really go along way to future work. He has his own style but I think it's over filtered or over processed and sort of detracts from the overall niceness...but it still gets a vote and it's just my opinion. I picked Alex because he has a definitive style emerging, heavy and bold. He may refine things to be more subtle in the future but for now, this has a lot of character. Then I picked Candacis because I really like what's going on there even if the cloud cover is a bit heavy...I really want to see that terrain because it hints at looking very cool. I won't comment on the others, there's a lot of good things going on with them but I'm just explaining my thinking on my votes. If I were to comment on all of them I might be here for the next two hours.

It took me a while to finally eliminate my choices down to three. My choices are AlexTna for style, Jaxilon for creativity, and PlumCrazy for originality.

1. Greel - that looks great. I wish there were a few more details (what can I say? I like intricate maps...) but the overall style is just fantastic. Love it.

2. timallen - Love the thinking-outside-the-box idea of using the shapes as rips in parchment, and I like the old-timey pirate map look of it.

3. Jax - Your style is really starting to grow on me. I love your color choices, but as Ascension said, it does feel a tad overdone. Still more than good enough to get my vote though.

If I could've voted for more, I would have had to add bartmoss and Beoner in as well. It was really tough for me to nix those two in my voting, actually.

AlexTna and Beoner - because I love the styles and everything else. But PlumCrazy (how apt) gets a vote for being unexpected and decidedly cool. =)

Wow! Didn't think I would get so many votes O.O
Thank you guys, :)

I'm still thinking on who I'm voting, it's a hard. I think I'll let for the last day ;)

Thanks all for the votes, considering it was a late entry on a whim, I didn't quite get it done, and this being my second ever challenge, I am quite happy :-)

I'm quite happy with my vote tally as well. Thanks to all of you, and great challenge folks! Looks like this next one isn't my speed, so I'll be seeing you all in later months!

Thanks for the votes guys, didn't think I could get so many :). This Challenge was a very good learning experience and i think I am more confident now and more determined to get better. Very nice entries guys, I would of voted for at least 6 if I could. We will meet again in the September Challenge hopefully, because this months challenge is out of my "league" :)
