View Full Version : May Entry: Skryon Castle

Hi to U all,

Since in two weeks, my players will make their last stand in a castle for our game showdown, I decide to take this opportunity and do the challenge at the same time.

Here the map of the castle that we use. It's done by William Mason at elfwood (http://www.elfwood.com/art/w/i/william01/skryon_castle.jpg.html)

I think it should be fun to have the size restriction for this challenge.

Sea U hall,

I'm still trying to figure out what to add and which effect to work on (like the elevation), then I'll start looking for the compression into 75 kb.

Wow thats a bit of an improvement ! - nicely done. Gonna pop some sea and mist in there too ? It's like the last few days and were getting some serious revelations all round. I have already changed my preferred vote choice about three times already. :)

Wow! Night and day! The revised one is fantastic! Bravo!

Great improvement Alu, but I knew it was coming having seen your other stuff. Your style is really cool and could really be described as "voluptiously detailed". Keep it up.

I just thought of a cool challenge for our friends over at the Campaign Builders Guild. Refer them to Redrobe's WIP site and make them choose, say 10, of the entries and incorporate them all into a D&D adventure.

Really beautiful elements. I love the broken tiles texture in the main keep. Lovely stuff!

Unless some of U got any advice or commentary,

This should be the final version for this challenge (73.8 kb). I also include a version without the deadly mist, so it could be use on an existing land map.

I decided to not put any stairs in the towers so it would be more functional.

It was a fun challenge with many participants.

Also I could do the other level of the castle if someone wishes to have them.

I was just about to suggest you change out your water texture because it was overpowering that beautiful castle. But nevermind! Very nice work, Alu.
