Compass Rose by digging-for-apples Compass Rose by digging-for-apples
This is a small sketch i did as part of a geography assignment. A compass rose, shaped like a rose. How imaginative.

This is a beautiful concept. It looks like you photo shopped or typed in the directional symbols. If you draw them in later I would suggest using for example "WSW for SSW or ESE instead of SSE" and the same thing for the North two. I think that's how its typically shown in cartography.

My bad, I didn't read that you created this as part of a geography assignment - hence the additional points of the compass......ignore my ignorant comment below (please) :tears:

No worries, I think you're right, actually. Or at least, I think that the labels should have been drawn instead of clumsily photoshopped.

Love this concept tho' perhaps the compass points in addition to N, S, E, W detract from it, at little? And yet I like it. :love:

Aww, thanks! That's awesome. You've got some pretty cool flower pictures, too...i'm impressed, because it's hard to take nice pictures of flowers.

I almost got the compass rose tattoo when I was visiting the Seattle area, but I didn't have the money to do it as well as it deserves (Next time!!!). Haha, thanks! I pretty much just go outside and take pictures. Whenever the mood strikes, or right after a big rainstorm.
