    Lollage!

    Some more great stuff from you CM. Thanks a lot for the work put in.

    Oh well, I probably needed to rep you for something anyway

    Well this inspired me to kill some time at work messing with some paper I spilled some of my lunch on. I started getting pretty out there with recolorings and other filtering processes on top of the scans...and one thing lead to another. I just started seeing the wrinkles as land features and not just textured background.

    Thanks Coyotemax, this turned into a wonderful creative exercise.

    Oh my word. You made a map from a lunch spill? And not just a map but a really cool stylistically daring one?

    You people make me sick.

    Post Another technique I've seen for mountains...

    Though I've never tried it, I've seen a technique where someone crumples a piece of paper, mostly flatten it out then scanned to make a reasonably realistic mountain range from the crumpled texture. Tom Hardin's experiment reminded me of that. Something I may want to try...

    Ramah - Thanks, but sorry if I made anyone sick hehe. When I was a kid in school we would take brown paper bags, cut them up so they were whatever shapes we needed and then wrinkle the snot out of them until they gained the appearance and texture of leather, then use that for arts and crafts.

    Coyotemax - Thank you! Glad you created this thread...having done lots of paper wrinkling as a kid, it just never occured to me to scan it and photoshop it - sheer awesomeness in a bottle.

    Gameprinter - that sounds like a really doable idea. I may just have to whip something up.

    Ironically, Tom, that was exactly what I was thinking while looking at some of the shots from Coyotemax's upload with the drum skin.

    As to the drum skin, Coyotemax, Brilliant! I never would have thought to do that. Now that makes me want to go start trying to get high-res images of the textures in other instruments for use in frames, plaques, etc in our maps. I'll post here if I manage to find some time and a camera for that.

    Drumskin! I can't believe I missed that. I just bought a handmade drum a couple months ago; I am so gonna scan that. Great idea CM, and thanks asp for mentioning it so that I didn't overlook it completely.

    Thanks, Coyotemax, for highlighting this technique. This floated into my brain once or twice while I was drinking my morning tea, then disappeared again. Your awesome results made me want to try this out, just before I tossed out the dregs Just thought I'd attach the results, if they could be of use to anyone, though they are not as gorgeous as yours. The drying was rough and ready by putting the paper on the radiator but it did crumple somewhat interestingly.

    This was done in a hurry, as just an experiment - actually, I had two papers but I put them out on the balcony to dry, and one went 'gone with the wind' so to speak. Oh well - note to self, don't put anything out in the autumn wind without weighting them down first
