I confess I haven't read all the discussion since I the last time I had a look here... But, anyway, I agree with Azelor, your drawing is very good.
So, you got to find a way to put your drawing talent to contribution!
Thanks guys. Now just have to wait for the darned tablet to get here :P
seems like we had the same idea, Jalyha! Although I must say I think you were doing fine even without the tablet :)
Lol. Leend is much more interesting than goat island, though! :)
Here's some more goat island... just me messing around with some basic brushes/tools in GIMP trying to figure out what to do:
It look like another project...
Lol. I can't get it straight in my head how it would look from any given angle, so I keep trying different ones. :/
It does look pretty dark and stormy, doesn't it? :( Was trying to make the temple stand out. Oh well.
Also, that picture is awesome! You should totally do an isometric map of Goat island! (is that what it's called?)
Actually I could imagine that might help with the bird view if you first get a sense of how it would look from the side, and from above the waterfalls, below the waterfalls, etc. Might make adding the cliffs and slopes in the bird's eye map easier, no?
That was my line of reasoning... A view from down by the goat folds, one from the beach/flatland, etc...
Was thinking I could do pictures all the way around the island aand above, and below, and SMOOSH them into a mappable area :P
