    Except I shouldn't be painting, I should be mapping... And I can't paint very WELL, with a mouse & Gimp... things don't work the way they are supposed to.

    I'll figure it out though!

    I wanted to make it my own, yes, but I was captivated by the beauty of the LAND... and I've completely changed that land. (Oops). I want to get back to the real goat island, only cleaner and greener. I can worry about incorporating into "my world" after I've done that. So, I'm starting over AGAIN, since somewhere along the way, I lost my inspiration. I think after I stopped looking at the photo, my mind was trying to make the falls more plausible with more cliffs... and the cliffs got more and more looming, and darker and more mysterious, until the land wasn't pretty at all.

    Here's an aerial photo of Goat Island... this is what I'm trying to capture.

    I've strayed so far from that...

    So now I'm going to slow down, and take my time, and figure it out RIGHT

    Not that it will help you, but native American folklore states that a giant snake lives in a cave under the falls - though I don't know if that was the American or Canadian falls (which side of Goat Island this applies). When I say giant, I mean over a hundred feet long...?

    Getting there!

    I've got it painted, now I just have to turn it into a map, and then bring in the HUMANS, and maybe add a few twists to make it part of my world.



    Here's what I have so far:
