I'm not fond of the land shape, but it's a fine map nevertheless. And I love the way you did your broken "land of immortal ice".

The Borders become better on your Oraven Maps, I like the simplicity of the Grundgy effect now, more than on the namegiving first Map. The Blend of the Colors in the ocean are realy nice and matching an effect I tried the whole year to archieve. The transition of the pale orange tone of the Coasts, from the usual bright blue outlines of the otehr Maps ares significant to the "Hell" theme of the Map. Its the small details making a simple and small format map like this an inspirational piece of Mapping. You keep on giving me little surprises to look at and keep me thinking about bounderies of Mappingstyles and how to easily elevate them for different Projects. That I do respect.

Thanks much SK! Yes, I actually tried to take care about some unusual colors transitions on this one, to give it a special feel :)

I think this is a beautiful map, Max. I wish she had more information for it, so you could do more.

I particularly like the part where Hell has Frozen over. Well done!
