    Default September-October Mapping Challenge - New York Make-over

    WOW so many entries! Must map too... I must find time these months to enter the challenge ( been too long since I last entered ). This is just a placeholder. I'm thinking two directions, one is an aged and weathered streetmap (grunge grunge!) and the other is basically a 3d-ish 'make-over'. Dwarvish make-over, monster make-over, or maybe New York on the planet Calypso... I'll post asap. well, I already joined the avatar make-over fun cheers!

    Ok, for the "aged paper map" I did a manual trace (omg, this took me a complete night ) of an old map (1923) of the city and started adding some grunge... Still not happy with the look but ready for experimenting now cheers!

    Every time I look at this I get a sick feeling in my stomach over you having to sit and draw all those lines. I'm thinking I would go cross-eyed and hurl if it was me. It looks awesome but I think I'd go mad.

    Default Experiment 1

    Ok, experiment #1. I used the carefully drawn streets to generate a futuristic version of New York (still in low-res render o save time and did a quick blend with the original map. Not perfect but maybe I can get it to work... to be continued I guess...

    edit: oops wrong version, now good version

    looking good for a quick blend, but the two does clash a little for now ... how did you make the houses?

    thanks, the blend was indeed a 5 mins job to see if this could work. would need loads of work but maybe worthwhile. The city was generated in Blender using some procedural city generator. I used the streetmap and landmass to generate a bumpmap and in 5 minutes you got this nice city rendered
