    Default June 2011 Challenge - Bluemarble Battle

    For obvious reasons, I'll post this as finished, not a set of works in progress.

    What? Of course it's a battle being depicted. Over six billion people died before the first frame, and the last frame shows entire worlds at stake in a contest of galactic proportions. Sounds like a battle to me. And it's got map content - in several places. Worlds of map content.

    Very cool concept.
    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.
    -J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

    I love the concept, but I am unconvinced that I can consider it a map. ;-)

    Hmmmm... okay, is this more mappy? Mind you I'm totally cool with anybody deeming this not a battle map - but for the sake of form I have to defend my entry :-). Concrete from textureking.com, btw.

    Yes, a bit better. Put the "You're on Eliot" line between the last 2 pics, that would make the last image more clearly his battle plan.
