    No problem! I enjoy top down maps but perspective art is more pleasing on the eyes. And yours was very well done!

    No problem, well deserved. Hope you'll turn it into a WIP then into a finished map with shading or color soon

    Meshon Thanks for the input. I have a tendency to go too far down the Rabbit hole ! The shell of the Leather-back sea turtle isn't bone as a normal turtles is. It is cartilage . When the "Map was made it was totally black. The edges and the ribbing are the results of decades of rubbing away the coating. I wanted to simulate the wear(aging) of the "SHELL" and went too far. As for the symbols they are all etched them those of particular note had coloring painted into them to highlight their importance. I had a hell of a Time trying to get the resolution right so that the Symbols were clear but the file size wasn't too big. In the end I had to use jpg format to get it to fit. Then It was plenty too small etc. thanks for the advice I'll probably go back over this and try to fine tune this. A question to you if you have the time Bogie mentioned he had a hard time telling that it was a map and that theer was nothing to suggest that it was monster made ! Do You feel the same way ??

    Dear Guilder. It is traditional for me to solicit advice on my contest entries especially when they bomb so badly. It is the only way to Improve ! So if you can spare a few minutes what exactly was it that you personally found lacking in my entry “The Dark Journey “ Was it too simple ; Hard to understand : Too plain ?? Or something else ? I am asking so be blunt Thanks in advance for the advice ! It will help me Improve ! Sincerely lostatsea
