    I don't know if that is playable at all, but it's worth looking at.

    Its by nipper. One of the best mappers for CS/CSS. He made legendary maps:
    blahhh (CSS/1.6)
    ctf_hallofdeath (TF2) - which unlike the cs version rules
    de_westwood

    Look here for some more maps of him (note that even these arent all his maps)

    Still, you must like abstract maps or just insane maps.

    Interesting, reminds me of the Xen Skyboxes.

    If he's one of the best cs mappers i guess they don't have many decent custom maps..

    Though Westwood looks alright.. checking it out now.

    Amazing, but I can't help wonder how much more awesome it would/could look in Source :p Bump/normal mapping would really accentuate the painted feel.

    I wasn't seeing this in terms of playability :p but pure as a piece of art, it's very nicely done.
