    Wip A year later... :)

    Yeah, rock shading this island is a bitch, and I'm doing it bit by bit nowand then, which is why it's coming along so slowly. Also, as I said, inspiration has gone down the drain for the last year or so. THe canvas is 5000x5000 pixels, so that's another reason for why it takes so long.

    Either way, here is some more progress on the Boiler Island.

    Love looking at your work. I went down and dug out my Myst games, but haven't had a chance to see if they will run on my WIN7 machine. I'll consider installing a virtual WINXP drive to play these when my girls are just a bit older. I'd love it if they re-released the entire set to run on MAC/Windows. Heck making them run on a Tablet would be even cooler.

    Anyway, your map work is great.

    Wip Shading DONE

    Phew! At last! The basic shading of the island is now done. I will make a pass with highlights and then begin with the island details. This has taken more than a year! Not actual time, but it's been a bitch! Hope you at least like it

    You are absolutely and undeniably crazy!

    But who says crazy people cannot create great works of art? Looks quite good as yet... waiting to see how you will go on. Hopefully this won't take another year.

    Crazy? For handshading this island? Well, I'm inclined to agree, but hey, it has to be done!
