Really like the floor tiles. Very nice. Can't wait to see more.
Oh random dungeons, you so cwazy.
Having the layout predetermined yet still nonsensical suddenly reminded me of of playing Warhammer Quest, and how much I liked the detail they put into the big board pieces.
I'm shooting for a cramped stone battle-map style dungeon with dynamic lighting and shadows.
Work in progress as of 3/6 .. still painting the unlit floor tiles.
3/7 .. finished painting unlit floor tiles.
3/13 .. spider room detail

Looking great, Adam. Very painterly--I like it!
Did you basically lay this out in PS with selection tools & fills, and now are painting over with grays and darks (etc.)?

As for thumbnails...if you make the image an attachment it will automatically create a thumbnail. Looks VERY nice!!!

Thanks all, I'm eager to get back to it!
Yep Pyrandon, thats pretty much how it goes. Once the base is done, i go in and paint the areas of shadow and cracks, then move on to the grunge and highlights. Basically starting from the flat gray color you can see in the lower rooms, and then building up layers of shading.
Also, RobA.. I totally forgot the R in my post title. >< doh, haha!

Sure thing Midgar, after this project is through I'll do a brief writeup with images.
Updated my first post with the completed basic floor tiles. Moving on to the doors and misc debris.
Haven't had a chance to continue till today. Heres a detail of the spider room.
