    Default April/May 2011 Lite Challenge Entry - Palace of Lareth

    Well I'll try my hand again at this lite challange. The last few have been ones I wanted to start doing (seeing as I'm trying to make a multilevel map, world->continent->region->city->Buildings... Ambitious? sure, crazy? yes, will it get done? Heck if I know...) Anyways so this is just a rough outline so far of the castle, still going to do a bunch to it, let me know what you think so far...

    I shrunk it by 50% so the actual image is a bit larger...

    And we push onward! So this is the basic feel of what the map will turn out to be, I think I'll only be doing 1 level... all depends I guess... well maybe I'll do what I've seen others do, make small sections off to the side of other floors... hmm I like it! haha well here is the latest

    Ares96 - outmatched?! baha right, you've got a good start on yours, and it could easily out do mine! I'm near done though thats the thing, I spend several hours (probably a good 6-8 ) on it last night and this morning (between the outline post and the latest update) So yeah...

    Thank you. I don't have much else to do on mine aside from just adding more things. It's really more blueprint than map, and much simpler in style than this.

    Eye candy isn't always what it's cracked up to be and people's tastes vary so much and on a whim. I enter almost every month yet I've very few wins. Plus, look at that join date...Yandor joined before me so he has a lot of knowledge. Never compare yourself to another...you'll always find yourself lacking. Do your best and strive to outdo everyone and even if you don't get a single vote you know you did your best and maybe next time will be better. Sometimes I even hold off on voting until the end so I can give my vote to the low guy.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Very true. Anyway, good job Yandor and may the best man win! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to continue my actual mapmaking efforts!
