I was hoping you'd drop in, I doubt I would have tackled this without your amazing map to inspire me!I'm late to the game as usual...
The dots are on my map but they are very small because of the font. I will make them larger.I wanted to point out these dark dots in between the script on each side I this picture of the map.I circled them. Thanks!
It's heeeere! I think I have finally got a print that I would be happy to sell. I can go on tweaking it, but at this stage it's basically pixel-level pedantry, and as my granfather says, perfect is the enemy of the good. So I'm calling it finished, unless anyone spots any grotesque problems?
I've now started experimenting with physical weathering. It's so hard to get a decent photograph, especially in this winter light.

Hi! Wow I didn't think any kids these days were interested in antique films like Time Bandits!Your map is amazing!! Are you going to be selling these at all? I don't think I'd even need one that's full size to be honest just something that my son can see is more true to the one in the film would be priceless!
Omg are you serious!? Wow that would be amazing! And no we are actually in the UK believe it or not our son has always been into the unusual ever since he was little. It started with the labyrinth and dark crystal, which culminated in us meeting Brian and Wendy fraud when he was just 5! Then it went onto finding monty python Holy grail (he has a beast of argh pride of place amongst his playmobil castle and knights haha!) he also fell in love with the original power rangers show a whole back and we were desperate for a green ranger toy a couple of years back, ended up being contacted by a very kind fan of the original, who sent us his old transforming droids! Blew me away. I think it makes people smile to see a kid living old school stuff though, he's certainly not the usual almost 7 year old that's for sure! I think the most mainstream his tastes get is star wars but even that he prefers the oldest films and favours boba fett over all other characters. But his latest love has been the time bandits, I think I've watched it with him approximately 100 timesHi! Wow I didn't think any kids these days were interested in antique films like Time Bandits!
You can have my first prototype map if you like, it's A1 size which would probably be perfect for your son. I have been practicing weathering on it so it is thoroughly aged now.,. I'm guessing you're not in the same country as me (UK) but if you don't mind paying the shipping you can have it for nothing. Just a thought!
Dunno how I missed that! I will add it and move the Fludd symbol.I just saw a white line that definitely should be added in the same picture. I circled it. It is right below the large white circle i talked about in the previous post.
I feel a bit proud but also guilty for provoking you into editing your map, it was nearly perfect already! I'm kind of impressed you still have workable files after 14 years. And I hope you're not suggesting my map is 'better' than yours. We're aiming for different things; your map is screen accurate, which I guess is what most people want, whereas I prefer to make my props narrative accurate, because I'm difficult like that.Well, today's the day. I've reworked my clock panels. I'm still debating adding the hand-written numbers.
I edited my background to add more variance, changed all my clocks to the blue background color and changed the bottom clock to a vintage pocket watch. I am not reworking the main details of the map because I just don't have the energy for such a project.
I guess you mean an effect more like this [attached]? Certainly I do not think that is anything like the original prop, but there's nothing to stop me printing a one off.I feel like most of them are lacking a sense of depth in the blue background. Now, it's entirely possible the original maps were designed with a flat blue background,
