    Man, I can't decide. I need some time to think this one over. They all have their good points but the varying styles makes it hard for me to really pin down two.

    Indeed, there is a stark contrast of styles here. I'm going to study for a bit as well, since I can't bring myself to vote for me.

    Clearly some look more professional than others but all show an understanding of the concepts and techniques. Very hard; so I made up something arbitrary that takes skill and style out of the equation: which setting would I have the most fun in if it were real? To that end I voted for Guy and Lwax. For being a lite challenge, this was the hardest vote I've ever cast...period. Congrats to you all and if had I thought of some other criteria first then my vote would have been different.

    I was torn between so many of them. I really, really liked the idea of 'one man's fort' - it was genius and IG's tavern was excellent too, but in the end, I had to make a choice.

    Yep, this was a hard vote. I think all the maps are kinda cool and because the styles vary so much, it's so hard to decide which map to pick!

    Anyway, I picked Guyanonymous, because I love the idea he got. And I very much like IG's tavern as well.

    Hard!

    Thanks for the votes of confidence...it has definitely encouraged me to enter a contest in the future. I especially appreciate it, as my map isn't really a "gamer's" map.

    I voted for Iso cos I am biased and he was sat there on a 0 which is not good and then IG's map does look very nice so I went with that one too. But really all of them are great. I liked Lwaxanas cushions and UKs map and the grass and terrain were great in others as well. None deserve to lose.

    It's a real nail-biter, this one!

    My first vote went to msa. The map itself looks a bit incomplete, but I really like the style. Second went to guyanonymous just because it makes me feel like a kid again.

    Thanks for the love! I made this entry, in part, to work on doing stone in a style consistent with another map. I'm working on on building up the style further in the WiP thread here:

    The Ruined Tower

    It was a tough vote for me, too. I was really drawn to the crisp and uncluttered look and sketch style of the wayside temple, and even through I disliked the repetitive texture and furniture, I voted for it. In the end, my second choice was shrine of the mother because of the detailed elements, although in hindsight I'm not sure if those were part of a map toolkit or hand-drawn. The mages house and small tavern were very close contenders... I think the decision could have gone any way. Honestly, the other maps were really nice too, but the color palette's didn't jive with me even though I think they were all the right palettes for the style and theme.
