I'm experimenting the style pack "Fantasy Worlds" made by Pär Lindström (Name Clercon here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/member.php?u=1666))

The continent is 3000*4000 miles, so very large ... for me :)
I'm not used to working in formats as large.

The mountains and the forests are in place. Now, I'm working on the rivers and it's very difficult. Not sure it's a good thing to work on maps so big, with so many details :?:
> I'm obliged to export large size so you can see the details

Well so far so good and as for working on maps that large you get used to it. I've only done maps that are at least 2000x2000 and the only trouble I've ever had was when I was doing a world map that was 10,000x20,000.

Your forests (really, it's only the northmost one on the eastern half of the continent) look very confined, and it's clear there is a shape you wanted for them to conform to. It stops my eye and forces me to hover over it because of how unorganic it looks when compared to the mountains.

I'd also say put in more hills because where you have them really enhances the progression from flat land to mountains.

Yes, I agree with you. The forests are not very realistic.
And I also find that the mountains are a bit too present.
I'll start it all.

Also I can assume you've not gotten to the rivers on the other side of the continent, right?
