    Voting time! Unfortunatelty we had only two entries this month, there was probably a lot on holidays around. Anyway, here are the thumbnails of the entries :

    August Thumbnails

    Please vote for as many as you'd like (though one and only vote would might make more sense this month), and don't forget to rep the contestants. Voting will last for THREE days, and the winner will get that shiny gold compass,

    Good luck!!!

    Two great entries, unfortunate to get only two. It happens in the summer.

    I saw that the author of Shelves didn't want to know where the real-life water fall was during production, but I'm assuming it can be revealed now? I was pleasantly surprised to see that picture, as I used to live near these falls and have visited many times. Heck, I'll put it in spoiler anyway.

     
    Multnomah Falls, near Portland, Oregon. Indeed, the whole Columbia Gorge area is ripe with possibilities like this; it takes only a little imagination to see that whole area as a fantasy setting. Nice work on this!

    Thanks very much for the reveal! I had a feeling it was something like that.

    I like them very much. Now that I see people on the bridge, I think I slightly over-estimated the size of it as I was calculating things at the beginning.

    Well, you took something beautiful and made it even better. I wish I could visit the Shelves of Arlath.

    Thanks to everyone who voted. I had a great time working on the map and sharing the process with everyone. Because I wasn't quite finished when the deadline hit, I have a slightly prettier version of the map that I'll be posting shortly, for anyone who is interested.

    Meanwhile, because I love "time-lapse art-creation GIFs", here is one such animated image showing the progress up to this point:
