    Default August/September Entry: The Vorterris Islands

    This is an abstract alpha map that I had for awhile. I didn't think that I would use it because the shape looked kinda funky. The only real editing I did on the map so far was to apply OldGuy's tut on it.

    I think we are supposed to use the one supplied in the challenge description. If I'm wrong I need to know about it before I start on it

    Jaxillon has it correct. The challenge requires that you use the shapes in the main challenge for this one.

    Okay, after some fiddling around with the provided map I decided to do a blue marble type (half) globe. I still have to add an atmosphere and shading but here is what I got so far. The terrain was generated in Wilbur and then colored in GIMP.

    I don't think that it is too much to ask, but could a community leader change the title of my entry to "A Blue Marble"?

    Here is the most recent progress of my entry. I slightly edited the colors, made the globe seem like it is more "in space", and added the shadow & atmosphere.

    I used (public domain) NASA images to give it a more satellite view. I still have to add clouds, but here is the latest WIP.

    Lookin good, lookin good. You might think about putting a 'highlight' on the planet's surface opposite the shadow, to better show the sun's position.
