    Default December 2010 Entry: The Littlest Planetoid

    Okay, so, I know I am entering ridiculously late and that more WIP posts generally equate to more votes, but I figured I had a free evening so I thought I'd try to put something out. So, I give you 'The Littlest Planetoid."

    I figure I can't compete with the likes of Sapiento, Ascension, Cereth, and Ravells in terms of raw artistic skill, so I figured I'd go for something more style-heavy. I was kind of inspired by RJBeals' 'Lookout Island' and its cartoony look which made me think of being a child, doodling in a notebook, thought I'd give something similar a shot.

    Edit: DARN IT, I forgot to use the 'December Entry:' tag! I'm so sorry, mods!

    JT - Thanks, my man! I appreciate the kind words, always.

    SG - Thanks, my man.


    Just a few tiny changes, mostly cleanup, and a WIP tag this time:

    Looks kinda like the old Pop Rocks thing. Well done, man. Style is the most important thing in most of these competitions. Usually the hand-drawn or antiques win so if your goal is to rack up medals then go that way but if your goal is to experiment with other styles then have at it I say.
    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.

    Sorry for the almost inconsequential updates. I feel like the success here is the cleanness of the lines and colors, so I am doing lots of tiny edits and adjustments.

    This is all about fun and I think this map captures that in spades.
