More perspective work...

Hi !

My daughter needs a pyramid map for one of her university project and because I'm stuck at home after a knee surgery gone wrong, I was able to produce the following map.

All the fill styles are home made, and so are the columns and tomb symbols.

  • To add light effects I used the GIMP this time, but most of the layers came from hidden sheets of the CC3+ main file:

    And here are all the rooms.

    The pillar hall was quite difficult to render due to all the shadows. I used a 3D software (POV-RAY) to generate these shadows.

    Edit: found some glitches in the images...
  • Spectacular!!!

    Wow!

    That's just gorgeous :D

    You have the luckiest daughter!

    Indeed, wonderful work again!

    Sorry to hear about the knee surgery though, hope you get better soon.

    Fantastic work. Really enjoy your attention to detail.

    Sorry about your knee, hope you'll get that in order soon.
  • Just stunning. What a master, and what a lucky daughter.

    Thanks a lot!

    I mainly used a simplification of the article here.

    The simplification was in using wall sections that match the fill styles. Because the bitmaps where imported to a 10x10 fill styles, walls have lengths of 5, 10, 20, 30'...

    In fact, you can achieve the same result by extruding 10' long lines (without using the complex part of moving the fill styles origin points as decribed in the article), and placing them next to another, like connecting symbols (see below).

    As for the knee, well, recovery should have been 4-6 weeks long and I'm now in the 10th. At least I can walk, err... limp, but it's still hurting.

    Knees are tremendously complicated joints. More time!

    Willing you well again :)
  • I'm at a loss for words on the drawings.

    Good Luck with the knee !
  • I. AM. SPEECHLESS.

    Would love to see an article about how you did this.

    Seconded!

    Ah! Well, you know I like to write articles. But about which topic?
    • Creating the fill styles
    • Using the fill styles with P3
    • Using CC3+/P3 and GIMP to light the dungeon
    • Or, with heavy maths, how to create a fill style for a slope (outside of the pyramid)?
    For the whole she-bang I'm afraid I would need to sacrifice the other knee, or you'll have to be very patient ;)
  • LoopysueLoopysue 🖼️ 24 images Cartographer ProFantasy
    I, for one, am quite famous for being patient - but please don't do yourself another injury!

    I think a multi-part article with each part indepently useful would be great. So, start with creating the fill styles.

    This really turned out amazing!!

    Simply.Absolutely.Brilliant.

    Nuff said.
  • Wow! This is really brilliant !
  • 1) Jaw-drop. This is great!

    2) Tech question: how did you get the jagged cutouts on the walls and ceilings?
  • I LOVE THIS! I have perspectives but I haven't really gotten into using it yet. If you can do this with perspectives though...:)

    I think Joachim has the ability to make Perspectives jump through hoops.

  • Thanks a lot everyone!
    Posted By: MaxSchellsen2) Tech question: how did you get the jagged cutouts on the walls and ceilings?
    Quite similar to what you did for your windows.
    • Create a fractal path joining the top of the wall to the lower wall
    • Copy from 0,0 to <30,1 or <150,1</li>
    • Joining both paths with shaded polygons.
    and for the ceillings part is just a normal extrusion of the path 1' up.

    As a matter of fact, you can draw perspective with CC3+ without Per3 . What Per3 really adds, are the fantastic tools to handle textures.
  • This is really stunning JdR. I always know when I see your name on a post that I'll see a real master's work. Beautiful as always.

    Yeah, I can see how that works now. The texture-to-slope-angle challenge is the tough one!
  • Articles would be fantastic, but I'm thinking more video tutorials!!!

    This is awesome, btw!!!
  • Note to Joachim and Monsen - what about an annual with this fantastic Egyptian grave site? Surely Joachim can be persuaded (I hope)
  • I second the motion :) What do you say?

    Storm and I are both 'graphic learners'. I would love a video tut, but understand from my own situation that such things are not always possible ;)
