    Map Stinger

    Hy, I'm continuing to improve this style which is "mine" (I hope it is!). Here is the new result.

    I didn't manage to improve the "parchment style" to make it more resembling, even with what have been said in my last map in this style...
    It is not anything that fit with a campaign or my world creating, because I feel it is necessary to improve my skills first, and I continue to find some tips to improve my style...

    Hoping you'll find it nice!

    Here is the second version, adding a folds to the parchment...
    That's the first time I use it, and i'm not sure to really understand well how it works, so that's the only result I managed to get...

    Very Nice start. First off, i would reduce the opacity and/or make fewer folds on the map. As it is now, it's quite overwhelming and distracting to me. Second, while I like the snaky mountains, I don't really like the mixing of mountain styles. I would suggest picking one style and staying with it. I think the snaky style fit's the map's overall tone better...

    I like the idea of the folds, but they do seem a bit heavy. Folds like that would work really well on a map that's more monochrome. I like the coastlines; very funky and unique. Have some rep!
