    Default August/September Entry: The Sky Islands

    Figured I better get this in here before someone else has the same idea

    Here is the start, I think you get what I'm going for.

    I didn't really want to look too closely at the entries that were up already so as not to be influenced by them. Thus, I quickly zipped through just to see if anyone had the same idea. I didn't realize from a quick glance at your first post that's what you were doing. Probably mainly do to my looking to see if anyone had elongated the bottoms. I just figured you were doing something I hadn't figured out yet. Now that I see your updated version I can totally see what you mean though. I don't know that this is better either. I still have to do a ton of stuff to do, mountains, cities, rivers, yadda yadda. Not sure how well I can pull it off, I'm still learning how to do that in the 3/4 view. Now that I've seen yours though I'll try not to be influenced by your killer mountains

    I was really going to just pull out of this one because I was trying to put something together for the Big Apple. It seems however, I've been waffling around on a few ideas and getting nowhere. I in fact, went and did another map completely. So, here I am with no time left but tomorrow (or today really) after work to finish this.

    So I was looking at this and I thought, heck yes, why didn't I see this sooner. So here we are slightly modified - The Sky Islands Golf Course!

    I have to put the rest of the course together, hopefully I have enough time and nothing comes up that's more important.
