Hi fellas.

I cranked out the map below in under one hour easily (took me ~30 minutes or so, don't know exactly) and I quite like it. I am currently thinking about expanding the story written on the map with more maps, showing the way of the six siblings, fleeing from the north.

Tell me what you think and if the story sounds vaguely interesting ;)

You have nicely followed pasis tutorial. The forest (dark green area) stands out a bit too much to my taste, but otherwise it's just fine for 30 minutes of work.

Very cool map for 30 mins of work. I can see Pasis his tutorial at work here :)

Yeah I heavily annexed Pasis' style ;)

I just happen to love that style and am mapping with it since at least 4 months now, if not more ;)

I love his style as well and you seem to have grasped it quite well :)

You have made Man-mountain (Bird-Mountain?) rather than Lizard-mountain. Excellent work!

Thanks! I changed a few techniques, specifically the trees. I use a scattering brush of 2px size and a woodland texture, this leads to more "realistic" spreads of woodlands, I'd say. At least it looks more natural, I think.

Care to elaborate? I do not exactly know what you mean :?

He's referring to the mountain range shape in Pasis' tutorial (it looks like a gecko) but yours doesn't. Looks good to me, nice work.

Very nice, though I find the text difficult to read (probably just me tho :D).

It is a little small and opacity is only 80% or so. I will probably set it a bit higher, and work on a second piece, trying to make this a story told on maps. We'll have to see if it works out ;)
