    Post ***September Challenge Voting***

    September's Monthly Challenge is at an end and the time to vote has arrived.

    We will be implementing a system of votes based on the 1/5 the number of entries. So this month we have 29 entries, so you can vote for five (5) maps. The poll is open, so everyone will be able to see the voting. The Guild thanks you for you patronage and votes as well as wishes all of the entrants a hearty GOOD LUCK!
    The thumbnail view, courtesy of RedRobes, is located here:

    September 08 Thumbnails

    This month's Rules & Guidelines:

    We have produced a map attached below which could use some improvement (it was drawn by RobA after all). Your challenge is to translate the attached map into your very own style. Change the colours, symbols and text and make this map your own. Make it 3d, or draw it on paper: intricate or simple - it is up to you.

    By way of explanation:

    The big magenta hexagon is a city
    The small magenta hexagons are towns
    The greeny yellow smudges are marshes
    The bright green smudges are forests
    The pointy lines are mountains
    The rounded lines are hills
    The blue lines are rivers

    North is at about 11 o'clock.
    Each edge of the map is 100 miles.

    We would like voters to vote for the map which has the most individual style in which all the elements of the map work together to form a pleasing whole. As this contest is about individuality, all contestants should list with their map any elements used which were not created by them.
    --Entry Notes--
    The following aren't on the poll because they either dropped out or their last posted entry was clearly incomplete.
    •Trasgarian tears --- Morshwan
    •Contour Crazy --- Redrobes
    •The Saga of Oath-Bound Men --- Lord
    •First Time --- bryguy


    an undersea map --- alucard339
    (as of this edit) this map isn't on the thumbnail page.... so I've provided a link here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=3003

    Voted for the five entries who I felt had the most individual style. One thing I've noted this month is that a lot of the Photoshop maps, while being extremely good, ended up being fairly similar. That can count against the voting this month as we scoring individual style.

    See Ravs, it's not just Campaign Cartographer maps that can become similar

    It's going to be interesting to see what a five vote spread'll do to the figures.

    Eh.. that's what I get for waiting until the last minute and trying to rush to get an entry in. Would have made it, too, if I didn't have to take the kid to school.

    That was a tough vote. I too tried to focus on style, but so many deserved attention. Hats off to everyone who entered.
