The saga of Big Dave, The Pontefract Llama Dresser is a long, long story. So we won't dwell.
Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes, in Pontefract hospital on 31st October 1980 (Hallowe'en. Speaks volumes). The irregular heart rythm in the womb, and subsequent smack on the bonce with a concrete floor aged 6 may have done their part to contribute to his current state of insanity. Going through university in order to drink himself into a coma, Dave actually managed to get a degree in Politics at the end of it. This was a shock, as he'd intended studying Journalism.
SOME SALIENT INFORMATION ABOUT DAVE:
* Dave was investigated into involvement in a ring smuggling illicit teacozies into the Soviet Bloc in the 1980s
* He lists his hobbies as beer, girls, PlayStation and yelling at articulated lorries
* Jim NEVER fixed it for him. He is now somewhat thankful for this fact.
* Has a strange, intangible hatred of the number 47
* Is currently holding auditions for a comedy sidekick, but only if he's called Ron
* Almost got suspended from school, age seven, for starting a pontoon school using Monopoly money
* To this day doesn't know where his rosemary grows
* The death ray is in the works, and one day we shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles
* Only some of these facts are correct
Hello, it's BJF. I've seen your reply to mcspyder's post on his made-from-scratch map of Dominion Island in regards to creating topographical maps. I was thinking that you could look for topographical filters for Photoshop or other programs like Paint (dot) net, GIMP, or Corel. These filters help create the topographical look you're wanting to emulate if you were to create a map of your own. A lot of the topography filters are adjustable so you can play with it to get the look of a topographic map as you desire. Trying to create them in MSPaint itself is painstaking and very time consuming. Hit up Google or Bing and search "topographical filters for photoshop" or the equivalent program you use. Most of the filters for Photoshop can be crossed over to Paint (dot) net or GIMP allowing you to use those filters the same way as Photoshop.
