Ha ha, yeah. I first made this with Antarctica but it just didn't look good. Sorry.

Thanks for the compliment!

Re: Planet Earth


It's a little unsettling that the whole of the world is being shown on one half of the globe... makes it feel like there's a whole hemisphere of water behind it

I think we agreed that things would be personally created.. that doesnt rule out generated images// unless theres a clip art with this image on it?

Re: Planet Earth


Yeah looks like ya took a projected image of the Earth and put it on a circle, which it wasn't intended to be projected on. I like the thought but it doesn't quite work.

You get this from Google Maps or something?

The best I can tell, you are correct, it is a Mercator projection just arbitrarily placed on a circle. This is why anartica was left off, because it would not fit the bottom of a circle.

Might I suggest to the artist, that when trying to do something like this, they look at other possible projections. If one were to use something like the Van Der Grinten projection, the result would have been a circle, but the shapes of the continents relative to it would have made sense.
