    Default June Entry - Ansalon

    Ah a tribute! I just have to squeeze in time to work on this (and I will finish it this month ) ... The map is of the world that really opened my mind to fantasy. Many may consider it the soap opera of the fantasy novels, but hey, it got me addicted... I love the theme where good does not always prevail but where the balance between good and evil is a law of nature... I grabbed a copy of a map, traced it, then projected it to a globe and threw in a lot of textures, shades, shines and other stuff to try to really glorify this world! Some of the textures are the awesome paper textures from Sapiento. Next step is to get into the details ...

    Oh and I didn't put in the name of the world yet, maybe someone recognizes it...

    cheers!

    Very cool style. "Hope is the denial of reality" .... sounds like Goodkind (which I gave up on because of the hopelessness lol).

    See? Someone smart enough to use Google-fu on the problem. Thanks jfrazierjr for the correction. Dragonlance then? Never read those, but my cousin LOVES them.

    loved dragonlance as a kid, now they are a bit to "sweet" for me - So give me some Robin Hobb big feelings dark lives or Joe Abercrombies nitty gritty dark fantasy instead. But Dragonlance is a fantastic place to start, especially if you also start playing rpgs So i believe Djespeks glowing world is a fair representation

    hehe, yeps it's Dragonlance indeed, a map of the continent of Ansalon. I agree tilt, it's a bit sweet and weis & hickman are outclassed by Hobb for sure, but I just loved the Tasslehof and Fizban characters when i read those books (must be over 20 year ago though that I read them). Hmm, maybe i'll go for a re-read when i finish my current stack of to-be-read books cheers!
