View Full Version : Neolithic Village - 5 minute map challenge

12-07-2013, 03:17 PM
Forgot to post yesterday, I attempted another 5 minute map challenge on the Maps for Sharing G+ community. This one is a pencil illustration of a neolithic village after getting inspired by some photos of ruins in Malta. No color this time - lots of time lost in stone detail. Of course quickee and sloppy, but it's my style...

I like this one... have you thought about going back to some of your 5 minute maps and doing serious projects on them?

@foremost - They are definitely idea generators. In order to compel me to rush a map (that's what you got to do in a 5 minute map depending on the results you want), despite me being a very fast mapper anyway, I need a thought provoking concept. This time neolithic ruins was the inspiration. I'd like to do a serious neolithic village, one I spend at least some hours doing, instead of minutes. Some like the one I did of the airship and the spire in the miasmal sea was going out on a limb, since I'm not really a gaming fan of steampunk - it was my venture into a genre I was a bit awkward at approaching. So that's likely my only attempt at that for a while. 5 minute maps are experiments only - getting a concept across with some artistic value, despite being little more than a scribble.
