Hogsmeade, Gondor, Cair Paravel, The Emerald City, Never-Never Land… all fantastical places that started as text and have now been interpreted into visual landscapes. Now it’s your turn!
Take a place–a city, a significant geographical formation, ship, maybe even a dimension–and render it visually. You can compile stock images using GIMP or Photoshop (make sure to give credit where it’s due!), draw, paint, or even create a collage. This assignment isn’t limited to places that don’t have a well-known visual representation yet, either; if you want to show us YOUR version of Bag End, go for it!
For your writeup, explain why you chose your imaginary place, the technique you used to create your image, and what effect the transition into a visual medium has on the original description.
