    It was done with a Wacom Bamboo and Paintshop Pro X and is my first attempt at working in this style so I kept the brush very simple - a 2x2 pixel, hard, "nib" going to 1 pixel at need.
    I'm calling it finished simply because I haven't thought of anything I want to add for a several days. I've added all the stuff I had left on my shortlist and "cleaned" up the text (and grammar I hope). I know there's a lot of whitespace but I like that, and I think it needs it to keep it "light"

    cheers!

    Review: This was a spectacular map made by Crayons that initially started as a project for him become re-acquainted with his WACOM TABLET. As a result, over a period of One Month Crayons has created a spectacular isometric map that is chocked full of little interesting bits of humor and hidden treasures that simply compels the viewer to spend many enjoyable hours simply looking at this map and trying and find them all the different goings on about the much like Martin Handford's WHERE'S WALLY? children's picture books. Some of the things Crayons has hinted at to be found in the picture are:

    Sleeping guard
    Famous bugs
    Smugglers
    Horse "play"
    Mad monk

    And many others (perhaps Crayons will one day give us a Full List and Answer key too )

    Well deserved. I'm impressed how quickly it was awarded!

    This is the type of thing that really adds to the guild's body of work as a whole.

    Wow!! Thankyou! As I said, without the consistant support from you guys on the WIP thread I'd almost certainly not have completed this thing!
    Sure, I can do a "answers" version. Which is probably the point where you all discover you couldn't find them because the pictures are rubbish!!

    Cool - I was just browsing your gallery images last night, and stopped on this one for a long time! So much detail and work went into this - amazing job crayons. You deserve the award.

    Two things: I only just noticed that my original comment in this thread must have got deleted when Neonknight had whatever trouble he had. So I'll just say: fantastic map, Crayons. Well deserved award and my hat can remain uneaten. \o/

    Second thing, the image at the top doesn't open up into the full sized image, leaving it hard to get a full appreciation for the map when viewed from this thread. So I hope a mod can fix that. This thread doesn't seem to have the replies or views it deserves at the moment and I guess the small attachment could be part of the reason.
    Royal: I'm very sorry for your loss, your mother was a terribly attractive woman.
