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 7)

Wall Street was very easy to lay the draft lines for.  All the buildings and skyscrapers are easy to spot in any fly by in the show.  But what really helped me with the details around the Principle Office was the header image above.  A big thanks to ReBoot Revival and Glitch Bob for that.  In fact, there are a bunch of awesome posters up at the ReBoot Revivial site.  Check them out!

As a side, it was really fun to draw the Baudway towers.  But pretty soon I’ll have to start Beverly Hills…  I have a feeling I’m going to have trouble finding good images of that sector to reference.  Did we ever spend any time in that sector in the show??

Sorry for the poor image quality this week.  Everything is still in light pencil, so yeah…  Next time I’ll try to turn up the contrast again.
