Long time no post...
Created in Sketch-up, Photoshop and Visual Nature Studio 3
Sketch-up? The google tool for 3D stuff? I played around a few times with it, but I didn't expect you could do things like this with the software. Amazing! You have my rep, dude!
Quabbe, I used Sketch up to make simple, low resolution, buildings, etc. These were then exported and brought into VNS as you see in the images.
Here's a close-up that shows how simple the models are.
once again fantastic work, have some rep kimey
Great Stuff!! Lovely work Kimey!
Nicely done! I've played with SketchUp a bit for other design projects, but never thought to try exporting elements into another program. I know you can import height maps from Google Earth with it, though I'm sure you've got a program that could do better. Had you thought of adding any gentle grading to your 3/4 view instead of keeping it flat? Could be interesting, perhaps.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
