    Post August Entry: Modern Rose

    This is intended for modern maps. It is based on a compass I drew in a dungeonforge forum thread a while back.

    This one is completely from scratch, however, and completely in Inkscape, including all shading, blurs, effects, and so on. I have exported it as as png, so the transparency has been maintained. I'd love to see someone drop it on a map (hint It is intended to look like a metal rimmed, curved glass thingy with the marking engraved and enameled on it.

    I could also remove the hightlights and shadows so it could be rotated differently... I'll post the svg if there is interest.

    *EDIT* I added an in use example on a map I found on my hard drive...Not the right style, but shows off the lighting effects a bit more...

    See... why do I even bother to enter these competitions...? Another beautiful compass that I have no chance of beating.

    Default There are few Modern Compass Roses that I know of

    There are certainly too few Modern Compass Roses available!

    This has a very professional look.

    Nice job!

    Just an update, with my permission, this compass is now being used in a blackberry GPS application (without the highlight and drop shadow):
