View Full Version : September Entry: Queens Quarry

09-24-2009, 02:34 PM
This is the V.1 to my entry for this months design challenge. I've been lurking here for a year-ish and I always intend to post... and when I saw I had a hole in my schedule, I decided to give it a shot... will I finish... hmm... hard to tell... I started this about two weeks ago, I think that is within the timeline needed. Also, this is a WIP, so um, how do I notate that?

Most of the stuff I do is for tactical, tabletop battle maps. This is an example of that. Full size is 17x22".

Anyway, I intend to take this view of a quarry (cut from whole cloth in Photoshop and Illustrator) and show what a location might look like after a battle has taken place.

Stuff I have to do:

Fix several things on the "before" (too long to list).
Add tactical symbols to the "before".
Create custom elements for the "after" (I'm thinking a busted trebuchet)
Add some bones and dried blood etc...
figure out how to show some footprints and such...

Comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I think it's a good start to a battlemap demetri. The challenge ends tomorrow. I suspect you didn't realize that?

I guess I shoulda read the whole "five days before the end of the month thing..."

Ah well, I'll keep working on it...

Actually it looks as if Ascension will be closing the entries late on the 27th (~midnight CST). So you still have some time. ;)

Ah, too bad.

I'll have to try again sometime...
