    Post September Entry: Planetary Survey

    Well, It was a rough evening, but I got it done.

    The map is of a planetary survey being done by a spacefaring civilization on a planet that is not so advanced. A combination of Photoshop and Illustrator.

    Very, very cool! I love how one scan line is super sharp and the other is blurred, and I also really like the little info-graphic on each of the cities - aw heck, I love it all. Fab entry mmmmmpig!

    Thanks much. It was a bear to do. Probably 12 hours total for this version. I started many other styles and settled on this one tonight.

    Very nice details on the "display." And points for a creative twist on the challenge.

    Ugh... me no can see. Error in image... is something going on with the forum software again or perhaps it's just me and FF3?

    Arcana: Sweet Giblets and Gravy there are a boat load of entries this month... It took a Loooong time to comment on every one.

    MountZionRyan: Thanks, it was difficult trying to come up with something not already covered inthe breadth of work shown this month.

    Steel General: Oh, I did not make this vote any harder than it already was. Thanks for the rep.

    jfrazierjr: I posted it from FF3, so I hope that is not the issue. I hope you get to see it, I think it turned out well.
