The Tomb of Baroch - Cartography

This is volume three in Tesseract Engine's Strange Cartography series. It's a whopping great big 32 inch-wide and 30 inch-high 1"-squared map of a tomb, designed for use in games that require such things for miniatures battles.

This is the first map that I've done most of in 3d. There's some Photoshop work in there, post-pro (mysterious bloodstains and other miscellaneous stains and splatters), but the basic tomb (and its sparse contents!) were modelled in Silo and textured and rendered in Modo. The fun part of that is you can take pics of it from different views (hence the isometric view below) and even get right into the tombs (hence the picture of Baroch's tomb right at the end).

Finally, then, a bit of fun. The models aren't designed to stand up to such close scrutiny, but here's a close-up of Baroch's grave, replete with statue of his favourite hunting dog.
