August Entry: The Grist.
Hi, this is my first time doing a challenge, well I joined only a few days ago.
I will be doing 7''x7'' tiles. This is the first one, just to get the style down.
The dungeon is called the Grist, it will be pretty standard and dilapidated. It's entirely done in photoshop.
Dark and moody!
"Good Lord!" (pun intended) :P
Nice work! Dark and moody, just the thing to get the adventurers blood pumping - I really like this. Sweet painterly style.
Welcome to the boards, Lord.
Its nice to see one of the Conquer Club members jumping into a monthly challenge right off the bat. Good Luck!
Keep up this quality and you'll be getting one of my multi-votes! (This forum allows multi-choice on voting up to 3.)
Yeowzers, thats mighty fine ! A handful of map tiles like that and I think your in for a front runner pack finish !
Definitely some rep heading your way.
Very nice, looking forward to seeing the rest.
Thanks. I have never done a map on this scale so I am getting use to the style, its quite different. I hope to do the tiles geomorphic like your terrain set, though it should be a bit easier since only the entrances have to match up.

"Rep" is reputation. Notice the balance symbol, located beneath your name (between the other two symbols) at the bottom of your name/stats block to the left of any of these posts. By clicking on this symbol you are revealed any reputation points assigned to you for good works.
Any of us who think you deserve some "rep" can click on your balance and apply a point or two of Rep - giving you higher status here.
You should equally give someone else Rep, whenever you feel they especially help you out with tips/tricks or is especially creative in a given project.
What comes around, goes around - spread Rep around where you see fit, you'll surely be earning some of your own.
Here's some Rep for you, Lord! :D
Ok so here are two more tiles. Just a basic straight hallway and a basic corner. The hallways has a torch lit and some spent torches on the ground, all are objects and can be removed. The corner has a cave in, which is another object, though it will only fit there, but it can be removed. The hallway has the grid on it.
I will work on some more 'rooms' as this is starting to look like a cave. Though the Grist is an abandoned dungeon.
Theres going to be many more ohhs and ahhs from over here. These are great.
Edit -- I should also mention. I run a script now and again which generates a page of thumbnails for all the competition entries. There is a sticky thread about that under the challenges section with the full details. Your already on that page as the script grabs just any image it can as the latest thumbnail but if you want to tag an image as the latest work in progress then use the latest wip tag with #'s as specified in that sticky. Then the script will use that image until you put in another tag. It always uses the last one it finds.

These change as we get new entrants and new updates. I used to do it by hand but I made a script cos it got tedious after a while.
Cool, very nice, I plan to make use of them once you have more of them. And you can count on my vote when its time for voting.
