Trying to get that “cold foggy morning, waiting for the last tube home” feel… but without being too obvious about it.

Take your time with replying, I’m not in any rush…

bharper

how exactly did you make this image?

bumfluff

Basically its a 3D version of the London Underground network map. Had to recreate it in 2D vector format, then exported to 3D, extruded it, added lights, texture, colours etc, then a last little bit of touching up in pshop.

SmellyCat

bumfluff

SmellyCat

Started out as something else. And thats what it ended up. Cant wait to see yours!

Thats not micheal jackson, is it? :)

I’m now wondering whether to go for a traditional London ( pints of bitter, Victorian hats etc) or a modern one…

Too late to think about it now tho, I’m shattered… I’ll try and get the new one up soon. Nice reply.

SmellyCat

hehehehe! nah thats not jako. Does look like him kinda doesnt it. yeah thats what i was thinkin about. whether to make it modern or olden. Just wanted to have some fun with this one so i just went with the flow + got an idea from the map idea u had in ur entry :)

Get some rest dude and ill be looking forward to seeing ur image!

bumfluff

I probably shoulda spent a bit more time on this after I got the basic idea… but I gotta run to work in a min, and its a bugger to leave these halfway and carry on. have fun :)

That is tight!!! my anticipation has been met and exceeded! ill get something up wen i get some time.

Very very nice!! :)

SmellyCat

did u do the rail map work in illustrator or photoshop?

RevDrLuv

Clever idea, but not so keen on the execution. Clipped and chopped brick walls are never pretty.

bumfluff

Smellycat - I found a gif version of it, so photoshop, although I have it in vector format from when I did the first pic. Do you need a copy?

Rev - Totally agree about the execution, It could have been a lot better. I really should have left it a while and had another look at it before posting it, its hard to look at it objectively when you’ve been working on something for a while… still, I’ll know for next time :)

SmellyCat

you did the image of the bottle before?

Im gonna have to hit the sack dude! nakered! :( ill get something done soon dude!

bumfluff

no sorry, thought you meant the tube map on its own… the bottle bit was done for this logue

I like the pub crawl drawn on the map :)

seem to be heading in a more “graphicky” direction now… next one could be fun, and I’ll try not to be so impatient with it (learnt my lesson from the last).

Will reply soon.. (assuming i’m not out drinking on friday nite ;P )

bumfluff

Well yeah, he could get on the bus and arrive safely at home…

OR.. he could fall down drunk, fall asleep, and have something nasty happen to him :)

SmellyCat

shirohagen

Nice subject, I’m in London too, there’s definately plenty of material! My favourite image is probably number 4 as I’m a sucker for vectors & perspective, but I love the hidde object in the tube map. Thought you guys might be interested in the following site where there’s more of the same… www.animalsontheunderground.com/ ®

SmellyCat

Just a quick entry…

Definately sums up the day I just had… ®

arthaus

Not sure I get that last image. But makes a change from depicting us Londoners as a bunch of thugs and lager louts ;-P

BTW, shirohagen, that’s a nice link, quite amusing that, ta.

bumfluff

I just had a look at the link too.. they’re pretty cool, I love the elephant one.

Smellycat - good to see you back :) I’m not 100% sure about the last pic either, but I’ll start working on a reply.. might take a while though

SmellyCat

It was only a quick entry… was basically ment to say that the earning are up and there are less bums on the street….well as i said it was only a quick entry ;) Cant wait to see what you come up with pall.

zdoob

i think it’s cool. love the colors.

cJw

Diggin’ the colors also - the one spike that extends into the ‘trails’ on the left really bugs me, tho…

And that black arrow… it should be killed as well. ;p

SmellyCat

thank you Zac and cJw for your comments! Just noticed what you were talking about cJw!

bumfluff

Yeah, I know, I’m such a pessimist..

shirohagen

shwayday

Beerad

Now that is a sweet image!

SmellyCat

Just a quick one to finish off. Was harder topic than i thought. Id love to have another dsnlg if u fancy!!

Nice, I like the postcard idea… seems a good way to finish. It’s funny, with London being a touristy place and all, I never really though of postcards..

A suggestions though: don’t use a hadnwritten font for something like this - write it yourself and scan it, it looks more natural.

So, what’s our next logue? :)
