Hello everyone. :)

I've been lurking here for quite a while now and have now decided to post one of my projects. I'm working on a map for a RPG and would like to show it to you guys and get a few pointers to make it better. I'm using photoshop and some lovely brushes by a few other cartographers. :)

After making the map into .png I noticed I ahve to smooth some shadows on the ships and cities, but that will have to be tomorrow. :P I've included a "B&W" and coloured (and old looking) version of the map. :)

I like both. I love the simplistic view when i look at the b&w version but I also really like the colour schemes you have used on the coloured version. Can i ask which brushes you have been using in photoshop ?

Sure! :D Here's a list of the brushes I've used:

Ships (http://urbanar7.deviantart.com/art/13-Pirates-Ships-Brushes-40355956) - I used them to draw after as they are solid and I just wanted the lines. ;)
