I`m quite overdue on this, but I`d VERY much like to withdraw my contribution as it is FAR from complete. Just ain`t enough hours in a day.....
Oh, and Gamerprinter got my vote..... Love those isos.
I voted for Devin Night's entry because it was indeed map-ish and very well presented. I would have liked a key for the various rooms but I guess someone who wanted to use it can do that themselves.
It was very hard not to vote for DJ's entry. I really loved the way it looked and while I guess I could see it as a side view map it's not my favorite direction to look at one. That said, if I had to have one of these on my wall I would print DJ's, it just looks wonderful.
Mrmox - A fun entry, I enjoyed going up and down the levels.
GP's - as mentioned more of an illustration but still nice.
Imm - good work on the 3d stuff, you will probably have this down really well soon if you keep at it and then everyone better watch out.
Neon - As stated, a nice Old School look
Siq - Nice creative entry albeit a pretty simple looking map which is exactly what the Pip Boy looks like but hard to vote for against DN's more finely detailed entry.
I would agree with what everyone else haas already said. Djekspek makes a beautiful image and presents it very well, the rest are all done very well considering how little time we had. I'm voting for GP's map, you get a good sense of it in it's environment.
With a bit more work, NeonKnight would have had my vote, but DevinNight offered a finished and well-designed entry that was also clearly a map of a castle. Djekspek and Gamerprinter provided beautiful entries, but I have to call them illustrations rather than maps. I would find either of NK's or DN's entries useful in navigating their chosen castles. I'm probably more likely to use Castle Mol, even in its current state, but I could use the Dwarven Keep if I wanted to. For several of the others, I could use them as handouts, but I'd still need to make my own floorplan.
I was torn (many talented artists here) but ended up voting for Gamerprinters Map. I enjoy your work - and Rep for the rest of you, too.
There are some insanely good entries this month. Normally a winner jumps right out at me, but I'm having a really tough time of it right now. Three of these I already have plans for LOL
Since I have to pick just one, I would have to go with DevinNight, simply because it is the most straight-forward. I actually prefer looking at Djekspek's castle (you got mad skills, dude), but its just not a map, IMHO. Still, an amazingly beautiful piece of artwork. Special Mention has to go to Gameprinter as well - just lovely.
Cheers to everyone who participated this month.
Djekspek got my vote, but it was a tooth and nail battle with DevinNight. Wish I had two votes this month!
This is one challenge I hope we reprise in the future! I would love to see more castles--every D&D party wanders into one sooner or later.
