    Default August/September 2013 Lite Challenge: Ya'gan Astroid Impact

    After months of not really visiting this forum I got a sudden urge to draw a map again. And just as luck would have it, I saw a Lite challenge which piqued my interest... And would end very soon.

    Great.

    So, I got to work and decided to try a one-day map: no precisely drawn out towns and borders but a more painterly impression. Since others were already doing continents, lakes and caves I wanted to do something else: I decided the blob was the outline of the impact field of a tight cluster of astroids.

    And so the great Ya'gan astroid impact of 2013 came about. I'm sure the inhabitants are not very grateful.

    I will first make a 'before' map, then redraw it after the impact. It's likely that I won't be in time for the challenge, but it's still good practice!

    Feedback and critique always very welcome, but keep in mind this is supposed to be a quick map, and not a refined masterpiece

    And the 'before' is finished for now!

    I'm a little scared to start the results of the impact, not really done anything like that before!

    Thanks, Diamond! I'm currently considering whether I want to label my cities/regions/rivers... Hmm.

    Alright, I challenged myself to finish this before midnight, and it's midnight in my time zone now. This is what I have:

    I might still polish it a bit, but the core idea is definitely there!

    Aw, thanks, that's such a sweet compliment! Every time I look at it I see more things that need to be fixed... But I'll leave that for another day

    Thanks! I did consider simply drawing a giant rat attacking a village, hehehe.

    I think I just got a wrinkle from laughing too hard.
