Another project I'm working on since a few weeks (an hour here and there).
While I'm quite satisfied with the general look of mountains and forests I'm not sure about the towns.

Great Job, as usual!

I believe the style used by Aerius would just fit perfectly with your map ;)

Wow Sap, I don't know where you find the energy from, but I have to say that is a really beautiful style. I hope you do lots of maps using it! The mountains are stunning.

Sap, I am in agreement with Ravels - this is really something sharp. I feel inspired myself to attempt something along a similar line. Maybe when I get back from my vacation starting next week.

Those mountains are absolutely stunning. Can't wait to see this one finished.

Thank you all! I think the cities are the only issue to solve...and of course a good font for the labeling.
@ Dain: I could try something similar. Thanks!

I agree, the cities should be a biiit bigger, but the terrain is lovely. :)

I like everything (except the cities), they are so small that it's difficult for me to give any quality C&C.

This is a part of the map at full size with new city icons.
The cities shall be large enough to make out at least some detail, but not so big as to be out of scale with the rest of the map.

I decided for some small city icons and added a border, a cartouche for the title, compass and scale bar.

I like these icons, unobtrusive but you can still tell what they are.

My only little nit-pick is that the rivers are on top of the icons, you might consider changing that.

I shifted some of the icons to avoid an overlap with the rivers.

I also replaced the cartouche for the title, I didn't really like it.

Is the font to squiggly?

Well, it is very squiggly, but it's legible. So I guess it's just a question of preference.

BTW, how long is a milliaria dezimale novae? :)

Maybe make the coastline a tiny bit heavier? I'm losing it a bit now the map is coming together with all the elements. The font looks great to me and in keeping with the rest of the map's character.

A made the wave lines stronger. A mile is kilometer.
I also did a coloured version.

I absolutely love this map, I normally prefer the un-coloured version but I really like the palette on this one. The mountains are just amazing and something I will definitely try to emulate.

The coloured version really makes it sing. Funny like Korba I would have thought that I would have preferred the un-coloured one. Stunning work, Sap!!!

I like both versions...well done!

I think the colours are awesome as well. Possibly adding a really dim wash filter effect to the colours would make them look more like watercolours and even more in keeping with the hand-made look. Maybe an overlay or screen ...

No wash filter, but something similar. Better?

What a sweet map... and your speed is astonishing!
