    Default August/September 2014 Lite Challenge: Wilburia

    Ah yes, more random blobs. I'm sure that I'll get the mountains right, but will lose out to those who apply time and talent to their operation.

    Starting with the basic blobs in Photoshop, invert them to get a white for land and black for sea:

    In Wilbur, apply the usual multi-scale processing for a coastal mask with mountains and V2 shader:

    Do a 3D preview, find a nice view, and take a screenshot:

    Crop to just the active elements in Photoshop:

    And perspective distort and resize in Photoshop to get the original aspect back:

    Now that there's a starting point, it's time to add on other parts to make it more mappy. I'm always a little conflicted between the semi-perspective mountains version that looks a little muddy due limited resolution and the straight version that's a lot cleaner, but lacks the pop of the semi-perspective elements. Maybe I need to tweak Wilbur to output higher-resolution images than just a screenshot.
