Showcase your random work :)


Recommended Posts

I was looking through my bookmarks and I found an image of a building I made around the time I first joined more than a year ago! I don't know where the map file went but I really wanted to post this image because it looks interesting :) I thought maybe it would be a good idea to have a thread where everyone can post any mapping images they like as a showcase!

Heh I remember this tower!

Ahaha, Escher! Did you make that yourself, or find it somewhere? Even if you just found it, good find!

 

I have some "Castlemolds" miniature molds for medieval model making, but I haven't really used them yet. My wife made a little something out of them. But here is someone with a great eye, recreating the real illusion:

Yeah I made that one myself when I was starting to do work with you guys a while ago.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Damnit. Every time I see something like that, like this,

or this,

I get a mix of feelings. Awe at how simple(!) and beautiful it is, and frustration that I can't seem to do it myself. I make it much harder than it is, apparently, in my mind, and defeat myself at the start. Though I can get self-pleasing results once in a while, I just don't seem to have the wiring for envisioning such design as a whole, top-down and then building it up from the parts. There's also the approach of build-as-you-go, but that requires a different kind of talent, and the tenacity to stick through the rough spots, when it's little more than a blocky concept-mess.

 

When I see something like those castle models, it gives me energy and inspiration to build. As such I have literally more than 1500 photos I've scoured from the web over the last year or two (brodyaga.ru is a favorite). But the building is the exciting, and easy part. It's the damn concept building skill I need!

 

Stupid right brain! Work better! :angry:

Same here. Some people simple can, and then is me :(
