    Couldn't decide between Lingon and Carbus, so voted for them both.

    Seeing Lingon's as an actual complete map, combined with the style just looks great.

    Carbu's presentation and the amount of effort and detail in the layout is pretty amazing.

    Yay for the two D20 icosahedrons! I first thought I'd try to do mine on an origami waterbomb... but I couldn't figure out how to transform a projection I could think in, to a sheet of paper I could fold. Not that I've ever folded a very nice origami balloon. There is a real-world map out there on the interwebs to fold up and blow up, but the faces looked so scattered I didn't want to try. Carbus, you created that gorgeous map in 20 hours? Wow. What I get in 20 hours is usually about the crayon-on-paper-towel stage of beauty. I'm slooooooow. For such a work of art to also be pretty quick is double amazing.

    But it just didn't wind up as a physical thing. Lingon, yours wound up spherical AND was a marvel of mappery, so you get my vote.

    I'll put up a thread showing my experiment in a bit better form, after the voting's done. Basically, as far as my entry got, I proved to myself I need a substrate to mount the gores on. So I invested $1.68 in a standard kid's rubber ball, about 8 inches diameter, and I've been snapping some how-to shots. Thanks for the votes, y'all!

    Hey guys thank you all for your kind words!
    I voted are for Lingon (not much to say have I) and jbgibson, both of them tried something physical, that demands a lot of work. This is something I respect, I suck at physical things, and since my only skills remains digitally I went to use the G.Projector as a base for my map. And also I could finally finish a World Map, something I wanted to do since I began mapping, that`s why I keep on doing this challenges, they give me an incentive to try new things!

    Great maps guys! And congrats to Lingon, well deserved!

    Just realized I hadn't voted yet I chose Jbgibson, for making a physical globe, and Carbus, for making an awesome world map. (Yes, I changed my mind about your map not being globey enough, Carbus )

    Thanks a bunch for the comments and votes, everyone! I've wanted to make that globe for ever, so it was really great to finally get it done

    Very well done, Lingon - that's a map I'll enjoy going back to, to peruse repeatedly.
