I like your landmass shape! Nothin else I can see to comment on so far though, looking forward to what you do with it!

Very interesting landmass shape. I like it! Looks kind of like a curled baby dragon. Horns on the top-right, stumpy little wings on the mid-right, about to nibble its toes on the left, and the tail at the bottom. :P

Thanks AlexSchacher, I'm glad you like it so far!

Neyjour, I can see what you mean by the curled baby dragon I did't try to make it look like that but I like that it does!

I added a few textures, a background for the frame I'm making, and added my mountains.

Looking good! I love those mountains and the circular framing. :)

I like what you got so far Domino :) Let's see how this will turn out but I think the black of the coastlines and waterlines might be a bit heavy.

I love the swirling in the oceans and the circular framing is cool too

Thanks Neyjour! I'm glad you like it!

Max, I did fade the coast lines, you were right they were a bit dark. I'm glad that you like it so far!

AlexSchacher, I like the swirl in the oceans too :)

I did some more work on my frame and faded the coast lines.

Wow, beautiful border, really nice mountains and good work on the sea! I have to say that the improvements compared to your first maps are evident. Keep up the good work!

It's looking nice, so far. I especially like your moutains and the view's choice.

Thanks Fabio! It amazes me how much I have learned with the help of the wonderful artist here. :)

I'm glad you like it Ilanthar!

I added forests, rivers, and lakes.

The coastal lines looks better :) Like Fabio said, some nice improvment from your first maps, keep it up!

Edit : Damn, your post uploaded right after i posted :D Nice trees, it matches the mountains style very well.

Thanks Max! I'm glad you like the trees, I tried a few things before I decided on this style.

Okay so after a busy week I finally got to work on my map a little. I added icons for my cities, added some cliffs, and some hills also a little texture.

I added labels and did some more work in the frame. I think I'm done with it unless I think of something else to do with it.

I'm not a big fan of cities cruved labels which I find useless. This said, maybe you could add some touch of colors on icons to make them pop up a bit more? I would also work on forestsl abels - probably playing with the outer glow, for now they are not really legible.
