    Map Högolm City

    Attachment 39716

    Yeah, since folks probably don't wander over to the requests page ... I used Remos' request as an excuse to practice and fool around with photoshop. Needed the meditation after today.

    Comments welcome (I know the dock looks awful! I'm sorry!)

    Is that actual satellite imagery used for the ground outside the city? It's a very interesting idea and I am tempted to try that myself!

    Yes, I mashed together four satellite shots from Google Maps, 2 of south-eastern Gotland and 2 of south-western Norway, since the name of the city sounded Scandinavian, I thought the landscape would be appropriate. I just used the clone brush and different layers to merge it together.

    Yes! That is fantastic. Only thing to complain is the name of city, though if you don't have ö in your keyboard... then...

    Well, of course I have umlauts, and if I didn't, I'm sure I could draw them in I was just going with a fake latin name, since latin didn't have ö. Anyway, here, Högolm.

    What does Högolm mean anyway?

    Well, Hög is Swedish for tall, also in certain Norwegian dialects. Olm is Norwegian for mean. Although my favorite interpretation would be that the name has been derived from Hög Holme, meaning Tall Islet. Is the city on an island?
