The Definitive Map of Mainframe

“I finally, really did it… I drew it up!”

I can’t believe it’s finally over.  After 7 months of brain-melting, retina-peeling pencil and pen work…  It’s done!

You’ll pardon me if I don’t have anything left to say about it, haha.  The past month was the final sprint toward the finish line – I put down everything else I was doing to finish.  From finishing off G-Prime, to adding all the vehicles and Vid-Windows.  Then I had to add shadow and up the contrast to make it pop.  What a trip though.  What a memory.  Speaking of, let’s take a little look at it from conception through to completion.

Finally, while I have done this Map of Mainframe for my own twisted love of pain, if you’re interested in seeing more art (and maps!), please consider supporting me on Patreon.  Thank-you!

Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 5)

Kits Sector

Kits Sector is something I thought I’d be able to finish in an evening, but it’s taken me a week to get this far. Unlike my map of Breath of the Wild, I can’t see the image from different angles unless I watch an episode. And that’s tough because recently I’ve been watching the X-Files while I draw. Lol.

Does anyone have any high res images for Kits??  There are a lot of interesting circuitboard looking patterns in this sector.  I’d really like to see them up close.

Bob's 8-Ball Apartment

I’ve lived in the real Kitsilano.  It’s nice.  No 8-Ball Apartments though.  *sad*  Really looking forward to drawing the 8-Ball!  Thanks to ReBoot Revival for pointing out exactly where it is.  You can see the start of it at the top of the image below.  Glitch Bob pointed out something interesting to me as well – in the opening scene of “the Tearing” Bob’s apartment is not visible where it should be when the camera flies by.  Since then I’ve noticed the same in different occasions for Dot’s Diner.  Makes me wonder if they only inserted the more detailed sets across the city when they had close-ups.

Kitsilano and the Saucy Mare
Drawing the Saucy Mare was really fun.
