    Post Map a Panorama

    I personally love Stephen Wiltshire's panoramas, especially his one of Tokyo.
    My suggestion for a competition is to draw a panorama of a region, whether it be a city, or a landscape.
    It must be a full panorama, and be facing towards the horizon, and the tilt can be no greater than 15 degrees or so (how else could you do a panorama? )

    This will bring on an interesting competition where our competitors would have to draw out their maps with depth from the side, rather than from a bird's eye view.
    Poof. There goes all your useful talent in textures, brushes and mountains. You're going to have to manually draw out your map or paint it.

    Do you mean a full 360 degree panorama? Or do you have a minimum field of view in mind? 'Cuz I can make Wilbur do that, you know...

    Yup, full panorama.
    I would personally prefer to see this as a hand drawn map competition, but hey, that's unfair

    Details are up to the leaders if they want to do this one, it's just the concept really.

    It might be fun to go the other direction, too. Take an existing pano and attempt to make a map of the area it shows.

    Here's some inspiration for this thread:

    Wiltshire is currently mapping Istanbul.

    This is essentially what I had in mind for the "side scroll" idea. I say we combine yes votes for the two ideas and get this going!

    I say Yes! - except I'm really busy.

    Though, actually... Assuming it can be a fictional place and it's only the panorama, then Yeah. Bring it.
