I was experimenting with creating a battlemap for a D&D game I am running, currently on the plane of Mechanus. I always found it quite flavourful as a place in Forgotten Realms yet rarely depicted.
Since it is conveniently pretty featureless, and I happened to have some gears from a past project, one idea I had was to render an object from above (I happen to know how to use 3ds max), using mostly shadows to imply the shapes nearby and then put a battle grid on top of it with the maptool.
Naturally I went off the deep end and started playing with it (photoshop filter galore!) and I kinda like the "inky-industrial" feel of how this picture turned out and thought to share. (obviously not a battle map)
