View Full Version : WITHDRAWN July/August Challenge Entry: Vultin's local Wizard Castle

07-28-2011, 04:38 PM
A castle owned by a Wizard of the Mage's Council.
He has 2 apprentices that he trains and plans on getting more.
This will be hand drawn, but don't expect anything fancy.

I had to use levels so you could actually see it and there were these weird white lines running across it when it was first scanned.
Trust me.. It looks better in person.

Ehh.. It looks horrible >_< Hopefuly it'll look better once I trace over it.

I can't seem to finish anything can I? Anyway I lost all the good idea's in my head and so.. That's it for this challenge.

It's still two weeks before the contest ends, plenty of time to do something else. It's a real shame the poor scanner quality, maybe you'll get the chance to use another scanner.

Can someone please post this as Withdrawn?
Oh and thanks for the support but I just don't have it within me right now.

Oh, there is always somethin within ;-)
I know this mood - for me it always helps to fool around. Take your pen and freak out! Change layer properties like a weirdo and cut everything into pieces you can find on your canvas - Just do something. And at some point *ding* there is it: the shimmering light of inspiration. There ain't no bad maps just a lot of them lacking that certain something, and that little thing will find you if you keep diggin' for it ;-)

Never surrender! ;-)

to bad evile-eagle - it was looking good ... but you'll pick up on the next one ;) ... I've edited your thread name to show you've withdrawn.

I like your castle on the cliff. You should finish it just for the experience and it might look cool, too.

If I find a ruler for the buildings I will :P

I know it feels like the contest is already over and the winner has been decided but I agree with Ascension, experience is a good second place prize :) At least that is how I view it with my map.

The same here!
I'd like to see the castle - imo the perspective was first class.

I agree.... I think a floorplan with an inset of the image in a cartoony style would turn out very nice...
