January Entry: Mysterious Island
This is a remake of an old map (one of my first), which I've started re-doing twice already, and now this will be my third attempt.
I wanted to use some of the mapping elements Clercon used in his 'monthly pick', but unfortunately 15 days was too short a time-perod for me to create a slew of new textures and develop new techniques (and not be embarrassed by the results).
So I'll just keep it simple, and use what I know for now - at a later date I will re-visit it once again and try different mountain styles and terrain textures, but in the mean-time I'll at least have a chance of having something finished for this challenfge by keeping it very simple.
The place-holder is of the origainl, in all it's low-res, ugly glory.
