Group Description

This group is to showcase immersive, 360x180 degree panoramas that are drawn, painted, illustrated, or otherwise made up. This usually means that the panorama is actually a painting or drawing on some sort of ball, for instance, or perhaps a bizarre CG scene.

Ideally, the panoramas would be equirectangular images since they are easily viewable. If they are not equirectangular projections, they MUST have a link to where it is immersively viewable.

You may also post photographs of the object itself. For instance, it might be a photo of the ball the panorama is painted on. However, the description MUST still have a link to where the panorama may be viewed immersively. Any photos without such a link will be removed. The emphasis must be on the image itself, rather than various projections thereof. If you have a painting on a ball, but don't know how to make it immersively viewable, please ask.

Photographic panoramas are ok ONLY if the photos have obvious and heavy photo manipulation going on, radically altering the content. For instance, compositing monsters into a scene, or making things all obviously in the wrong proportions would fit here. Simply adjusting color balance would not. Panoramas with lots (and I mean excessively lots) of ordinary clones in an otherwise normal environment are ok, but they are close to the edge of acceptable.

For other panorama groups, please visit for instance Equirectangular, 360°, Foldables, Stereographic Projections, etc.

Group Rules

This group is ONLY for immersive, 360x180 panoramas which are drawn, otherwise illustrated, or obviously heavily photomanipulated to have things in them that are not really physically possible. The normal way is to draw or paint on a globe, and stitch photos of the globe to view immersively only.

This group is NOT for straight photo panoramas, or panoramas that don't cover a whole sphere. There are plenty of other groups for that.
