View Full Version : September Challenge Voting - Map a Landship

10-02-2013, 11:15 PM
This month's challenge was to map a landship. There was much discussion on what counted as a landship, but ultimately you must be the judge of that.

September Challenge Thumbs (http://www.cartographersguild.com/challenge_thumbs.php?type=regular)

Please vote for your favorite map(s), and be sure to be generous about repping those who participated in the challenge. The voting will last for 4 days and the winner will receive a golden compass and the praise, admiration and envy of his peers. May the best map win.

Lots of great maps, always tough to choose who to vote for.

One suggestion, maybe the word VOTING should be in the title of this thread.

Some very nice entries this month! My votes went for Freehand ( the MRC map is perfectly done with a great drawing and a lot of details), Rob A (very fine blueprint style) and Bogie (I love the concept of this warwagon). Also Sapiento did a great one, though more a drawing than a map). Congrats to all for those great maps!

A lot of great entries - nice challenge

Really brilliant entries from everyone as usual - good job entrants. It was hard to choose one to vote for, but I went for EricPoehlsen in the end for graphic design and clarity of concept, with RobA and Freehand as close seconds (Freehand's stunning entry would have got my top vote if more of the map elements had been done this month!).

I tried, I really did, but I just didn't have time to finish. :(

Voting is going to require some thought this time around. There are a couple that I really like, but aren't really maps either. I'll have to think on it and vote tonight...

D. you have the same curse as I have.

I vote for Larb and Lostatsea. Booth can convince me with the overall design, also I would have love to see more details and less pixelations.

Another great month of entries! Glad I picked a good challenge to get back into these for :)

I stuck with the more "mappy" entries and voted for larb and lostatsea... but great works of art from everyone - even those who couldn't finish. Hope Lingon finishes up his Sultan's palace concept in the future!

I had to vote for the more "mappy" ones as well, the rests are great drawings and have info but they don't - in my opinion - give enough info for them quite to be maps.
Best of luck to the other contenders, and great jobs Lostatsea, RobA and Diamond!
I know yours wasn't finished - but I really liked what you had so far, and saw a lot of potential, great job.

Oops, looks like one of the other CLs caught this for me. Thanks.

I repped everyone I could and voted for my three favorites. ...One day I need to go back and finish all the challenge entries that I let fall by the wayside.

Hmm. Maybe that could be a monthly challenge - complete one of your old unfinished challenge entries.

Awesome work by all as usual :)

Lots of great entries - I think I was a bit out of my depth on this one. I voted for RobA, Eric, and Freehand. I liked the blueprint aesthetic of RobA's entry, the concept of the Tundra Crawler and the presentation, and even though it was a bit less mappy, I liked the MRC and how that paper model was incorporated into it. I would say it was less map and more design picture type thing like you'd see in those books about things. But I really liked it.

I would have voted for others too but I try to stick to just three votes. You all make it very difficult though. =P

There were some really great entries this month. Congrats to RobA for taking away the Golden prize this month.

WOOT! Thanks for the votes, folks :)

It was a fun map to do!

Where's your compass? :D

Where's your compass? :D

Darned CL's! They just can't get anything right :P Might have to give it to myself :D

I haven't won a compass since 2008 - 5 years is a long time!
