Nice work SK!
Here is an example Map of a former Color-Style, which got abandoned, but nonetheless I wanted to share this map.
I tried Ramah's Treething on this too.
The map is great, the border is amazing!

wow thats a busy border! a bit too crazy for me but i like the 'imperfect' red print on it.
i really like the city icons though they seem to be floating above the map for some strange reason.
i like this. it gives off an italian vibe, somehow. good stuff (though id tone down the water somewhat - it seems very dark right now)
I like the border - love all that intricate stuff. I feel like the trees and mountains clash way too much - both are good individually but don't look great together. I agree with vorro about the city icons.
"I like a look of agony, because I know it's true."
All your maps are awesome, and I think this one is great as well. I oddly like the color contrast between the water and the land, the only thing I don't like in this maps is that your mountains and forest seem to be textured, while the rest of the land seems flat and under detailed. I like this map and think you are a great cartographer. Thank you for sharing your work!
I agree with Diamond here : mountains and forests don't fit together. The trees are too sharp and have a too thin outline comparing to the mountains. The overall feel is pretty good but some details lacks of work (coastlines for instance).
This Map was somewhat of a missing link between the old maps, and the new ones and therefore deserve its place here, to show my progress. Its about half a Year old.
