    That's great work; really beautiful colors, and that font is perfect? What is that? (The one used for country names.)

    I love how you did the rhumb lines too; very subtle and effective, especially the little pegasuses (pegasi?) Repped!

    For a larger image hosting, have you tried Deviant Art?

    Thank you for all the feedback! I'm still trying to figure out the smoothing process from land to water. I can't seem to get it any finer without it ending up as huge pixels. I think that's what I mean. lol

    The country name font is called: Seven Swordsmen BB / The oceans font is: Viner Hand ITC - The pegasi I used was scanned from a vintage (1920's?) cereal box (from Finland lol) my father-in-law has. I saw it and thought it would go perfect.

    Never thought about using Deviant Art... you can host large pictures then? The map is fairly large... 7-10 megs. I will definitely check it out!

    I just created a quickie flash site for my home-brewed campaign... Argontath Flash Site - I run a campaign through MapTools and Skype with several people down in Australia and a few other places. All the page is for is reference for them if they have questions or need to download character sheets. I am still trying to figure out Flash though and putting in the art in a format where it pops up the racial stats and all that good stuff. The black and white art and the places of interest are all original artwork.

    Thanks again!!!

    Thanks, but it is really easy, even for a noob like me. LOL Go to wix.com and you can create your own free flash site. I have ZERO experience with website creation... in fact I started the site on Sunday while watching the Super Bowl. I'm just trying to figure out the little things like picture/album placement. I decided that the wikisite is really ugly and needed a plug and play designer. Choose a template, toss on some art and text and your all set! Give it a go.

    By the way, the map size is 25 megs! I thought it was 5 or 6 megs. heheheehh

    Curious to know how you can do a simple cut of a country from the map without losing the mountain ranges, rivers and such. I'd like to blow up each country to 3x/4x its size and put in finer details such as roads. bridges, places of interest.

    Thank you for any ideas!
