Spanning the *Imaginary* Globe
Anyways, pulled this from the game pitch I did as a supplement to the very last project in Comp. Illustration II. It's a manipulated photograph of a 3D map I did a while back, NOT for school, when I was really bored - made out of folded paper and LOTS of tissue paper/tape and careful application of acrylics...hmmm, now that I look at it, this was before I added the moss-tree/forests in the greener areas. The highest mountains are probably 1-2inches above the sea level which is the wood base.
As I was so bored when starting this map, there exists documents figuring out the plate tectonics that would cause such features, weather patterns for each region, political distinctions, general flora/fauna - though I didn't get to sketching out some of those creatures before the next semester started - and an outline for a Creation Myth/Pantheon. Yeah...I was really bored...I probably watched all three LOTR movies four times with each set of audio commentary in the process. Good times.
