Ice Age

Post #1by Tavotrio » 23.11.2010, 19:07

I didn't found any texture of Ice Age Earth so I think that isn't a bad idea show mine.

I did it using NOAA's 18000 b.C map to do the new continente shape and bump map, it's not well done, way be with more time I could do a better one.
If someone is interested in make a better one here is the ink.

Hi Tavotrio,

sounds good. I am interested in representations of Earth's eras. Could you show us the map of your ice age renderings?

Thanks
Michael

Hi Tavotrio,

Sorry, these days I had and have to be very busy in my professional matters.

Not bad, your texture. As far as I know is only one map (for celestia) about the last ice age period available (...but yours is even better now :) ):

Maybe you have to correct some icy locations..

I agree. If you google for "last ice age" (click on "images" in the upper left corner) you will find a lot of useful maps and illustrations from this cold epoch.
