Mini Planet - Campus Square by electricjonny Mini Planet - Campus Square by electricjonny
This is in Ann Arbor Michigan, on the University of Michigan campus.

I don't quite like how the center turned out, because of the distortion in the shadows, but it's not too bad. I also used the Liquify filter in Photoshop to make all the edges of the red bricks strait, and there's some jaggedness there. They bowed in a lot in the original.

For anyone wanting to know how to do this, you can see a tutorial here.

You can see more of these here :)

I'll be posting a couple more of these, so let me know how this looks :)

Very cool, I looked at the others but I think this one looks the nicest, it has a much brighter, fresher look, and the description on the first version was interesting too :O

This is so cool!! :excited: This one, and the Ferris State one are my favorites!

They're so colorful! I think a lot of it has to do with the sky and the focal points you chose (The UofM one had a pretty cool design in the grass/sidewalks too, and I looooove the Compass in the Ferris State one.) But as far as this image is concerned, I like the way you pulled the shadows into the center of the square. =D The changing leaves on this one are a nice touch.

You should print off these images and sell them to businesses in the respective areas. I'm sure they'd love them! Hell, if I owned a store pictured in that "Ann Arbor" one, I'd definitely buy one of these prints and hang it on the wall. It's just so cool!

Kudos all around. :clap:

Haha thanks for the replies :D

I actually printed the Ferris one off and put it in a cafeteria on campus. Seems people liked it, since I got a few comments about it. I think it's still there too :slow:

So I might turn these into prints on dA, thanks for the suggestion :)

This is like so amazing man, wow I was not sure what it was until I gave the full view, at first I thought was something done with textures but when I zoomed in :excited: WOW A LITTLE WORLD, this is an amazing idea

They're fun to do, but take a while to finish. I have a couple more I'm going to do :D

I like this one best, especially the center, though, the clouds kinda screw it up for me, that is, the way they stretch out of the picture and alter the flow for me.

Nevertheless, I like it. Nice job. :horns:

I didn't do much with the sky/clouds, but I'll keep that in mind for future deviations. My next one is like this, but at night, so the sky should be easier since it's so dark. No sun makes it easier :bucktooth:

The shadows are a bitch too, I'll bet.

Oh yeah they are. Takes around 6 hours just to erase certain areas so it looks smooth and one solid image.
