Subject:Yet another face of Mars

Suddenly remembered I have a mosaic tool in one of my graphics programs which let me quickly add a hint of an underlying block structure to the version I thought I'd finished late last night - quite pleased with this one, but let me know what you think.


Before



After




I've already printed and laminated the "before" picture for Dragonmeet, which is a little annoying, but which would be better for the actual game, bearing in mind it may be reduced to a fraction of a page?

Later - forgot to say that the program that had the mosaic tool was Microsoft PictureIt! Photo 7, which used to be part of the Microsoft Works bundle, I think. It has some nice easy-to-use effects I occasionally find very useful, and Works often turns up bundled with computers or very cheaply elsewhere.

The "After" makes it far clearer that this is a built shape, rather than something more supernatural. I think that will work at any size where the foreground figures are clear.

I think so too. OK, so that's the version I'll go with.

Definitely the second. I agree with what history_monk said.

Yah, that's got it! Flipping the head round so that the shadows agree just feels so much better, and the brickwork puts some scale into it.

I'm thinking more large stone blocks than bricks, but it does look a lot better. Thanks for all the feedback.
