    Wip Billshead - An Island Based on Shakespear's Head

    Initial steps:
    Billshead - An Island Based on Shakespear's Head-billsheadwip1.png

    Current Plan:
    Hair = Forest
    Forehead = Open Plains
    Facial Hair = Light Forest/Scrubland
    Eyes/Nose/Mouth = Lakes/Mountains/Hills

    Thanks to OldGuys tutorial for helping to give Mr. Shakespear a realistic coastline without loosing a recognizeable shape.

    I'm thinking of basing the map on an oil painting - the Flowers Portrait - rather then the print I started with. Experimenting with coming up with a good final look for it. Here's a detail of what I've got so far.

    Well, the thread-title sure got me interested xD
    Nice idea! I've done something similar, but I made continents out of it instead.
