    Default Lone Island

    This one started as Photoshop experimentation, but turned out quite nice, so I decided to post it. A grayscale island shape was done with Geocontrol and all editing and texturing with Photoshop. First I thought I should label it, but then again this does not fit in normal mapping category and therefore left it as it is. I hope that someone finds it useful and I guess it could be used in some survival adventure or something. Also added the Godzilla coming out from the water as per Steel General request.

    That came out really good. The only thing I think might make it better is if you could see some of the land extending beneath the water's edge. It is a little lighter around the land but the water looks pretty clean and I think you would be able to see something more distinct through it. Still, I love the depth this thing has. It's very photo like.

    beautiful as usual, and with labels it's a map - no matter what the format ... it's just isometric instead of flat

    Very nice! I especially like the subtle light-blue line along the coast and the waves. Not to mention the mountains which are superb! +Rep

    Edit: oh, it seems that I already gave you some rep, so I cannot do it right now.

    That's gorgeous. The mountains look absolutely realistic.

    Amazing work as usual, and repped. I just have one question: what did that poor little T-Rex ever do to you that you had to drown him like that?
