This was quite a challenge! The colours initially reminded me of Stevensons Treasure Island, which I arrived at via Yoshi's Island. I drew a map from above, rotated it incrementally by five degrees until i'd arrived at 360, and then scaled it up horizantally to ape the Mode 7 effect. After cleaning up and bevelling the map-edges it was a matter of manually placing sprites a frame at a time, (with help of the grafx2 stencil function {insp: Mrmro}) Creating sprites which were readable against two colours became it's own fun endeavour. Now if only Ben Gunn could find some more sheep..
