I have come to the sad realization that I have very, very little actual artistic talent. I can see an amazing idea vividly in my mind and know exactly how I want it to turn out. When I go to make it, all that results is horror.
Here’s my attempt at the entrance to Kaladim. It’s like a toddler was set loose with Legos and a jackhammer.
Then I decided I wanted to make something Sci-fi, so I made the Stargate. It’s still a work in progress, and not nearly as disgusting, but it’s still like I used playdough.
Tools available in Landmark are so powerful when in the right hands. I’m still wondering if they are truly what the devs use to craft EQ Next, but they have to be close. I think I spent 8 hours today practicing with the tools. If you haven’t already, craft the line tool. It will change your life.
If you want to see real talent you should follow Dave Georgeson on twitter (@DaveGeorgeson). He tweets his own creations and those he finds. You can also look at the /r/eqnext subreddit which is full of talented overachievers.
