I only see five voting options and five thumbnails - just checking, but are the six maps you mention in the leading post a typing error? :)

thanks, edited it - there actually was 6 contest threads - but it turned out one of them didn't get around to submit an entry :)

Wow, Awesome entries. I wish I had time this month to participate.

Had to go with the cruise-ship...the detail on that is amazing. Well thought out and executed. Congrats to everyone, though!

I went with the Icarus for the fun and detailed backstory and the cruise ship for the sheer awesome mind boggling celestial scale of it! :)

great entries again this month, I went with djespek and EricP

Akerbeltz: really love the retro feel of this, and the side view is fantastic - if you had had time to expand on the deck plans it might have gotten my vote this month :)
Djespek: Beautiful art as always and a fun idea as well. Fun that you were the only one who went with a fantasy theme this time around :)
EricP: Wow - what a fantastic work you've done here - the graphics are simple but works for a map of this size - great work :)
Midgaard: Love the old school look of this bring me back to Traveller back in the 80s :) ... to bad you didn't get to finish the whole thing
Sinnyo: cute chubby little ship - got an autocamper kind of feel to it - the live-in-little-trader :)

This was a cool challenge. I wish I would have finished. It was my first foray into this sort of non-freehand vector work. Most of the time frustration got the best of me after putting in a hour or two of fiddling with nodes. Still, I learnt quite a bit working on the map as far as it got.

My votes went for EricPoehlsen's insane, mindblowingly detailed plan, and Sinnyo's space ship which although small had a beautiful design.

Indeed a nice challenge with great pieces. My 1st vote was for the cruiseship: what an amazing amount of details. When I'm old and on a cruise, I expect a poster like this on every deck of that ship :) My 2nd vote went to the Icarus, love the info/layout and clean and crisp linework. The deepspace- and the class-S souts are also very striking pieces, and as a map I like them as much as the Icarus. It was the presentation of these that was in my eye slightly less then the Icarus, so I chose to pick the Icarus. Thanks all for entering and hope to see you next month :D And of course, rep for all... cheers, DJ

Voted!

The Cruiseship is just... impressive! The kind of map you want to put your finger on and imagine you are a tiny character making his way into.
The Wyvern Hunter made me think of a medieval mail-order catalogue, if anything like this ever existed...
I really liked the Icarus but it missed a je-ne-sais-quoi to make me twirl my whiskers.

Wow. Close race this month! If there weren't two votes I'd have had a really hard time.

When's the new challenge?! :)

@jesuis - nope, as the voting has ended the threads are moved to archive and thus the thumbnail script has nothing to pick up anymore :/
