Something Swampish by mmmmmpig Something Swampish by mmmmmpig
This is my winning entry for the October Challenge for the Cartographer's Guild monthly mapping challenege.

I wanted to play with the idea of figure vs ground. So I made the dock area level zero and the and the buildings are level 1 and 2. the trees are level 2, and the ground and water are level -1.

This was all primarily done in Photoshop with some monor forays into illustrator. The spider and the airboat are both my creations. They were drawn out first by hand and then vectorized in Illustrator prior to the painting in PS.

The devil is in the details, so please feel free to download and look.

I sure can! Did you ever hear anything from that I guy I referred you to? In any case, keep up the fantastic work. I'll try and keep an eye out, and when you get a portfolio built, I'll forward it on to everyone I work with.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks. It took waaay longer than I wanted and I still see all the unfinished stuff that I wish I had gotten to. That water is pretty darn scary, to be sure.
