So before I go posting this on the finished forum, I'd figure Id get your guys input on this map. I'm thinking about making the trees darker, but that will be a fair bit of work, so what do you guys think?

thanks in advance!

I think the tree color is fine, my suggestion would be to get rid of the 'olive-colored' circles around the city, etc. markers and replace it with a thin dark stroke.

Agree with SG, the trees look fine to me too. My suggestion would be to ease on the white label and compass (maybe a little opacity?) and move the compass a little out of the way (maybe smaller and move bottom-down more). cheers!

Howz dis? is the text too bold do you think?

I'd reduce the stroke/outline around the text. Little 'over-the-top' in my opinion. A 1 or 2 pixel stroke/outline is probably enough.

good grief, this went all the way to the second page.

Anyways, lessened the outline around the text. better?

also exported it as a png instead of a jpg

I think it's much better.

Agreed. Especially the text. It looks much better.

Cool map.

Like the vectorstyled mountains. Have some rep for thinking outside the box.

Excellent, I think I'll call it done. :)
