I colored my B&W entry for this month's challenge. I wanted to keep it simple and not too 'painterly'; turned out okay, I think.

I love it! I dig the B&W version too, but I think this is a really nice coloring, and I prefer it (as good as the B&W is).

Turned out pretty lovely! In what programme did you do the colouring? The original b/w looked vectorish ... this, now ...

I liked the b&w, love the colorized. Spiffy use of color.

I love this style of map. Any chance we can get you to create that mountain brush and post it. This could solve my inability to draw a convincing mountain.

Both were done in PS CS2.

I've been meaning to for the last like five months and haven't got around to it yet... :blush:

As always, i dig the landshapes. And the mountains (of course).
Are those the same mountains as in your successor states of the old empire-map? They look similar. I am always torn between those mountains and those you used in your Guthult map :D
And brushes would be awesome!

They're drawn in a very similar style, but a little more detailed than the ones on the Old Empire map.
Heh. It was YOU I promised I'd do the brushes for. *hangs head in shame* I'll do my best to work on 'em this weekend, how's that? :D

Yeah, that was indeed me :) But don't feel bad, Diamond. I looove your maps and it is always a pleasure to look at them...so if you have to chose between making new maps and doing brushes for random guild-members ( ;) ) i totally understand (AND vote for) you deciding for working on more maps :D
But if you have some spare time, I (and i am sure a lot of other members) would totally appreciate brushes for your moutains.

Cheers

Color? Bah! Next you'll be making it scratch-and-sniff!

Wow that's a beautiful map, definitely deserves an award!

Minor crit, I'm not so keen on the coloured outline around the labels, eg Montalva. I can see why you've done it to make them clear, but it would look better if the "stroke" effect had the same colour as the background. I've had a similar problem in my maps, it's fiddly because each label has a different background colour.

Anyway, very well done.

Haha! I think you'd knock out your viewers with that one, Diamond. ;)
