    Post *** August 2014 Challenge : What's around the bend? (in the picture)***

    Hey everyone,

    The idea of August challenge was suggested by Chasio :

    The features in the picture must be represented and constitute at least around 40% of the map, and you have to use your imagination to fill in the rest.

    As usual, please make sure to title your threads: August 2014 Challenge: <your title here>

    Also, don't forget to precede each work in progress picture with the label: ### Latest WIP ### This way the thumbnail scraper can find your entry and all the voters will be able to see it at the end of the month.

    ___________________________________

    This challenge will end on or around the 1st of September, after which there will be a THREE day voting period.

    Good luck and may the best win !

    Hmmm! This is going to be a hard one ! If I can find something appropriate in the next couple days that Piques my interest then I might have ago at this. If not then I'll sit back in my lazy chair. Er Easy chair and see what things everyone else comes up with.

    OK I am not sure I understand this challenge. Does it mean we can basically take something such as a photograph or a drawing from the perspective of someone on the ground, and then from that we create a map based on what is in the picture, filling out the rest (that we can't see because it falls outside of the picture) using our imagination?

    Or am I totally misunderstanding this? =P

    I've just been busy with commission work. But I should be able to set some time aside for the challenge...
