America Map: You Are Here!


Map of North America, circa 1950. Pretty self explanatory. If by chance you have no idea what this is about, then welcome to alternate history! Basically this project explores what the world may have been like if the Confederate States of America had managed to win in the American Civil War. I use real research to do a lot of it, but in the later parts I'm forced to take some artistic creativity in what happens, as by that time things have changed so much there is no way to determine what is likely and what isn't. It's a bit of a long read, and you may not understand it all, but if you like history and/or a good story, then go ahead and take a look. At the very least you can appreciate the maps and how much I improved over the course of the project.

EDIT: If you're wondering what the states are, I'll list them below. And yes, both Alabama and Alberta are abbreviated "AL." That's okay because they're in two separate countries.

Aery Name: Tookie Island
Character Name: Yappa
Character Species Combination: Cassowary / Grey Kangaroo
Rank: Young Tookie
Gender: Male
Character Personality: Yappa is a very unfriendly creature. He seems to have no motive other than to kick your face in, and he does that well. Unfortunately, Yappa isn't the highest on the intelligence scale, and is easily outwitted. Despite being mean and stupid, Yappa will do all of your bidding if you give him fruit. You see, Yappa loves fruit more than anything else, and has a horrible habit of gathering huge amounts of fruit into his mouth and attempting to swallow it all at once (which leads to him choking and attempting it a few more times before just eating them one by one). Yappa's disgruntled expression never changes, and he constantly cocks his head around to get a view at his surroundings. The only word Yappa can say is "yappa", thus getting him the name Yappa.

Character for :iconwindsonde:.

Original Size: 10x15

    A scene illustrating the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 in Salem Village, Massachusetts.

    With this one, I wanted it to have a more "historical" feel, while still taking some liberties with personalities and environment. None of the figures are meant to be a likeness of any actual person who was alive at that time, but I did read quite a few accounts of the event for research on the clothing and who was involved in the actual trials.

A Note on Technique: One reason why I decided to use all hatching instead of cross-hatching is because I wanted to opt for a more "wood-cut" type of approach.
    Another reason is that this is currently being colored in Photoshop, so the absense of the cross-hatch will help the color come through and define shape and tone, making the drawing appear less "muddy."
    This will be reproduced as a two-page spread in a forthcoming book in the United Kingdom.

    The two other companion pieces in the assignment are Magi's Abode, and Apothecary.

    As always, thanks for looking!

Edit: Added Salem Trial: Color Version.

once again all you see here is fantasy and no reality simulation kind of work. imagine you're on a distant planet. maybe stranded... totally lost. the only thing you hear is the roaring wind that strides through the canyon. the slight sound of smoothly flowing water. you see that impressive wide view of an alien desert like environment... to finally look up into the sky to see a planet's asteroid belt rising... soon followed by the planet itself.


what you see here is a panorama. a wallpaper thought for dual-screen setup.

the actual terragen background consists of 7 different pics. merged and maniped together within photoshop. that was quite a task... beside the usual manip work i did. for the planet i used parts *alyn's planet tutorial and it offered me some hints how to create the belt for the planet. my overall target was to create a well balanced serene scene... and i think i succeeded. =) a great start into 2005.

Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic saluting presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Why is it that the best candidate for president (Paul) is always unelectable, while the worst candidates (Bush, Obama, Palin, Trump) are completely electable?
