That was not an easy choice...

Not easy at all. Typically I look for maps I can play on, but some of the others are fantastic works of art.

One of my votes had to go to DJ, but it was tough deciding between Sap and GP for the other vote. Ultimately had to give it to Sap for a very cool and unique concept.

bogie: I like the general shape of the map and the elements, love the little lake - the bottomless pit should have been totally black in the middle and the texturing is a little heavy overall on the map
djespek: beautiful art, but would have liked it more "mappy"
EP: like the simple old school look, the hatching is a little heavy imho
GP: I like the overall layout of the map, but the texturing has a "thrown on rough" look - sorry. I prefer your normal hand drawn style :)
lukc: I like the idea, like djespeks the fillings take up more than the actual map though :)
MasterTMO: would have love for you to finish this - it had a promising look :)
sap: love this - so very unlike what I normally see from you - got my vote :)
themarko: good old treasure map look - this one got my other vote :)

good job all and great to see so many participants :)

Yea. As I wrote in my thread, the project had two main foci, putting it together in less then 5 hours and doing it only with inkscape - Like TMOs project it was more of a fun thing than really expecting another golden compass - especially after Djekspek ans Sapiento joined in with their incredible artwork.

01-04-2012, 04:00 AM
yep - there are some wonderful artists in here that tend to run with the compasses :) ... but as you say, its not about winning but about challenging one self and getting better :)

Good job to all! I - unfortunately - didn't finish. Other projects, other parties, crowded it out :) Ou well!

I loved checking out this challenge! So many great dragon maps. It was so hard to choose, but I went for Minduriel and the Dragon by Sapiento. Thanks to all for making it a hard choice.:)

I am disappointed I didn't finish, but I really only had 2 weeks to do it in, rather than the whole month. Vacation killed the other half of the month. *shrug* Oh well, such is life! :D I played around a bit with trying to assemble the layers into a single map image, but haven't succeeded at that yet either. :)

I wish you more time for mapping in the New Year Eric, and for Master TMO, I hope you finish your map. That was a great and different idea. It was nice having to choose from so many entries.

Some good solid entries this month! The effort put into these challenges is great, and is what makes them so worth running...

I was extremely confused reading this at first, because my real first name is Eric. :D

PS: I got a vote?? O_O .. Thanks!
