180 Movie

180 Movie is a new documentary by Ray Comfort that shows how he talked to several people who were pro-choice and in a matter of seconds helped them change their minds on the issue. You can view this 33 minute documentary for free at http://www.180movie.com/
I believe that if you are pro-choice you will be challenged by the questions that are asked in this documentary; I challenge you to watch it regardless of your beliefs on abortion!

Mapping: Vosmerre, I hope

I said in an earlier post that Vosmerre would be shaped like my iris (the colorful part of my eye). Well, it turns out that that island is actually called Vizin, at least for the moment.

I did finally start mapping Vosmerre, I think, but I'm not very far into it at all yet. However, here are some pictures of what I have done (if you have any suggestions or advice, please comment; I want to know what people think):

This is my continent, I haven't named it yet.

Watch out, these islands are home to a horde of especially vicious dragons called the Draken. Draken is a variation of an ancient variation of the word dragon, Draaka is the other variation of the same word, I think. 

This is Vizin, it is roughly shaped like my iris!

Eye pictures!

I finally managed to take some accepable snapshots out of a macro video of my eye, one of which I will trace, making that shape into Vosmerre.
I will hopefully be starting my map on monday! Praise God!

Mapping: Vosmerre Is In my Eye and I Can't Get It Out!!!

As I said in an earlier post, I took up mapping in order to map my fantasy world centered around Vosmerre. But, unfortunately (this is when I explain the strange title) VOSMERRE IS IN MY EYE AND I CAN'T GET IT OUT!!!! [translation] The part of my eye called the iris is what I want to model Vosmerre after, it actually sort of looks like an island; the problem is I can't get a clear picture of it so that I can copy it on my map.
So this map is just for fun and practice. As you can see, it's not by any means finished-but I plan to update you on my blog as I progress on it.
