I just had a baby, so I wasn't able to spend as much time on this piece as I would have wanted.  I love pirate stuff and wish I could have spent many, many hours pushing this piece further and further.  I had so many ideas and just not enough time to implement them all.

The pirate didn't want others to find the treasure easily, so she disguised the X-marks-the-spot with the trees.  Shhhh, don't tell no one.

My work-in-progress...

Stickman: good point, thanks.  I've better integrated that text into the map now.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 9/26/2010 15:46

Good one. That map really does feel old. I reckon the the title/name on the map, could look a little more worn out on some of the letters.

oka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/26/2010 12:06

 You have my vote!

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/26/2010 11:44

haha great idea! ^^ i wouldnt have found the treasure i guess, anyways,  looks rly good, very worn out, very realistic.... also a quite a useful map with that top-down and panorama view!

but maybe u could have those palm trees cast a  long shadow on the map to make them pop out some more...  i didnt rly see that to be honest... idk 

lets wait for elk.... but i think we got a winner  

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/26/2010 11:22

 omg, you have stolen Elk votes! (And the Delicious vote for mine!)
