    Default *** March Challenge VOTING - Mapping in Black and White ***

    This month's challenge was to create a map in only black and white. Antialiasing is the only greyscale allowed. The guild members rose to the challenge brilliantly! Check out the full set of entries here:

    That was hard.... there were at least 3 entries that were excellent, so it was hard to narrow down the 2nd/3rd ones, as well as several that were very good.

    Yeah, this indeed was a difficult choice. There were A LOT of excellent quality maps. I ultimately voted based on the concept of the challenge regarding ebooks... I've seen maps resolve not so well on some ebooks--even greyscale ones--so I voted based on which ones in my opinion would display the best on an e-reader, followed by which ones I felt were most innovative and appealing. That was the only near-objective benchmark I could think of. Well, in terms of the e-reader display aspect.

    Holy schmoly! I think this challenge brought out the best in alot of the great artists here. This challenge could have run for another month easy. I hope it gets a refresh down the road. Hats off to all the entrants! I hope to see a few of the entries colored and posted later.

    Diamond had me again, clean but interesting. The Pit City is a good idea and executed perfectly. He knows his scanner

    Some really great entries as usual but I had a surprisingly easy time of voting for once. Diamond and Lukc's maps just had that little bit extra for me. Good luck all who entered.
