    Default May 2011 Challenge Entry - Silmencia

    Thought I'd throw my cannon fodder entry into the ring.

    Here is the first bit. Just putting down a little of each element. The grungy hand drawn look seems to be really popular at the moment.

    Some good lookin hills and mtns there, man. Dig it.

    Thanks guys...it'll probably never get finished though. The rest of this month is going to be a bit nightmarish r/l wise.

    That's looking lovely already, Ravs. Come on, you know you can find the time to do it somewhere.

    Thanks Ramah,

    Your name was on my lips as I came back to post a quick update....by way of an acknowledgement and thank you for the 'Tree Thing'. It just rocks for this style of map! IMHO the tree thing is one of the greatest gifts the guild has received.

    Gah...it looks like Serif Drawplus can't handle large texture backgrounds I'm throwing at this...I can't open the file now (get an out of memory error)...17mb is a big file for drawplus. (sigh).
