    People....A working port needs PEOPLE.....

    That was a little nitpick, but the only thing that I can find missing from this.

    I fixed the leftover blue bits, shrunk the crab and reduced the breakers by about half.

    Sorry Korash, the longshoremen / teamsters union is on strike.

    I know you weapon of choice is Dundjinni.. But have you considered learning a raster based image editor to add more custom feel to some of the elements, textures or environment? You may end up finding that you can pull various elements together into a more cohesive style that matches your aesthetic. So far though good work.

    Thanks Geamon. About 80% of everything you see here was already created or edited by me in Photoshop. I use Photoshop to make all the mapping elements I post, Dundjinni to assemble all the parts, and then Photoshop again to edit, fix and add special effects. As for a lack of cohesive style, that's because all my elements come from different source materials. for example, 2 of the houses were made from scratch using a tiling roof texture, while the other one was a train station model that I photographed. Many of the boats were boat models I photographed, while the largest one was created in Dundjinni. And I'm OK with the lack of a cohesive style, If you look around the real world there is more diversity than cohesiveness. I know sometimes the different styles clash, but drawing it all the same would require a skill I just don't have. It's a funny thing, I can dig a piece of metal out of a patient's eye with a rock solid steady hand even at 16 X magnification, but ask me to draw a straight line or a smooth curve and it looks like was done by a 4 year old on a sugar high.

    One last minute change. Added a new boat I photographed last weekend.

    Ok, I have to ask, while the threads are still open: how do you take photos of boats from above?!

    Lovely map by the way

    Jet pack, Lingon, jet pack.

    Or maybe from the dockside at low tide?


    Anyway, I really like it.
    How did you obtain the cracks on the pavements? Black pencilled line with shadows?


    And these are some big damn fishies!

    Really great underwater details. I had to zoom in to see them but the rocks and sunken ship are well done.

    Thanks guys

    @Lingon I carry a 40 ft ladder where ever I go. Actually they are boat models I see in gift stores.

    @Simon The cracks are covers that I place on the floors, like this May-June Lite Entry, OldPort a Working Waterfront-cracks2_bg_dgw-.png
