    The requesr was that Melkos has to be significantly different from Slyrn in colors, showing that it was a different world (and a darker one, without making the map too dark)
    That's obviously a success! Especially if the local population has something of demonic .

    @ Lingon: are you gonna throw things to my head if I say yes? as for the colors, red wasn't specifically requested. The requesr was that Melkos has to be significantly different from Slyrn in colors, showing that it was a different world (and a darker one, without making the map too dark)
    EVEN THOUGH I'm none of these people:

    1) busiest one I've seen
    2) We ALL "really want to know"
    3 a) If he doesn't throw things, I might
    3 b) Mission totally accomplished. Especially the darker-without-being-dark part. In my nightmares last night, I was trapped in Melkos

    Well, this is a Slyrn-Style copy, right? So i can not add anything new ^^ But i am not a big fan of the colors on this map...makes it look too unreal for my taste. But i'm sure it serves its purpose well.

    The color choice isn't one I'd necessarily make, but if I opened up a gaming product and saw it there, I'd like it. It seems to be using color to set an ambiance of dread. Artsy and effectively informative, a visitor from Slyrn might choose to map the horrible place like this, LOL.

    Oh yes, I'll throw things. I just have to practice a bit first. Gotta throw halfway across Europe, after all. Then, when I can do that, I will throw gigantic prints of all your maps at you. Mwahaha!

    Anyway… I agree with Jalyha; mission totally accomplished

    That's a lot of maps... so lots of throwing. Could be quite effective after awhile.

    Thanks again guys, comments much appreciated! Haha I wouldn't have thought that this dark place that is Melkos would have bring about that much jokes More seriously, it was fun to draw something with "unusual" colors that really gives some heavy "fantasy" feel to the map (at least to my eyes....and the client's ones )

    No, no I really was... well... maybe Melkos.. It looked like your map everything was all reddish- but it was covered in blood and I was running through this creepy forest to get to the city, where I would be safe, and these poisoned-bloodpeople were chasing me and I ran into some mountains aand I kept slipping while i tried to climb and they were gonna eat me!

    True story. Then I got up and watched a marathon of care bears, barbie and my little pony until I felt better ^.^

    See what you caused? D:

    Great map Max! The color does set a definite mood, well done.

    Narghol is one he!! of a mountain. If it is drawn to scale, it is 28 leagues high! An Earth league is about 3 miles, so if their leagues are similar then this mountain is about 84 miles high! I don't want to meet whatever lives up there!

    @ Jalyha, May I suggest no more pickles and liverwurst before bed!

    And for those who are wondering, Max has minions, and most likely a few clones!

    Pfft. It wasn't pickles and liverwurst... more like pepperoni and extra cheese... with double bacon. But yeah, you're probably right
