    THE ROUNDUP OF ARTPASS ENTRIES #1
    "Holy crap! Someone's running this contest?!"

    By request of YM, I'm doing a "LOL THIS MAP IS PRETTY" thread, it might be weekly? How will you know? Wait until next week's thread to find out.

    Entries to look out for:

    RaVaGe[​IMG]

    Before this contest, I hadn't heard of this RaVaGe fellow, but I'm definitely keeping an eye on him after this! A brilliant take on the Yukon theme.

    Ayesdyef[​IMG]

    We haven't seen much from Ayesdyef's entry yet, infact, this is the only shot, but damn, look at those textures!

    Friske

    Again, not much has been seen here, but it's a very nice looking start so far!

    Kinky
    [​IMG]

    There are a few Mayan themes being thrown around in this contest, but I chose this once, because, well, look at those roots/vines!

    Gerbil

    I really love the hazy sky here, from the Swamp Theme, it really gives this great map a special touch.

    Dr. Spud
    [​IMG]

    It's Spud's third time on this theme, and it's looking great. He knows how to make things pretty, so I'm looking forward to where he's taking this.

    Until next time, keep detailing kids!

    This isn't a definative list of cool entries, just ones that I clicked on and looked nice, so if your map isn't here, don't be disheartened, send me a PM and I'll take a look at your map and consider it for another episode of the roundup!

    If anyone makes a full HL2 texture one, it must be added to this. I demand thee!

    Oh damn, Spud really did well making the map all colorful and nice! I wouldn't mind playing that. :)

    Of course, the rest are looking great too!

    Damn. I'm out classed by far. RaVaG and Spud have done work in days that it would take me months to do. And I mean the ONE screenshot.

    You'll have won in someone's opinion, but not necessarily Valve's.

    Still, I look forward to it.
