    That's an impressive map. A bit busy but not overpowering. Very nice.
    Cheers,

    I don't question the rivers as these are done for commission so I assume that the dude who is paying has some reason for them being that way. If there was a wip for it then we'd all point it out. In the end, for me...gray industry pro + finished map = it's supposed to be that way. In my business I always squabble with customers over things but since they're paying I do what they want...if they want orange and purple hummingbirds then I give them orange and purple hummingbirds.

    haha, well honestly, i agree with you on the rivers, they are a bit too black, which is a result of the inking process. I could lighten them up in photshop and make themn less harsh, and i usually do a lighter and kinder river type instead. These were just inked in in the inking process. I'm learning from every piece i do, just like everyone else.

    Thanks again for all the comments. I may go back in and take out the saturation from the top of the map since that seesm to be the most disruptive element in the pieces, and has been a major critique point here on the guild for many of my other works...

    We were actually referring to that river that goes from coast to coast and also has big splits that aren't near the coast (near enough to be a delta).

    Beautiful Work, nonetheless.

    This is AMAZING! I think, IMO, that this is the best map you've done so far!

    Definitely an eye candy map. I'm glad to hear that Paizo is investing in talent of your caliber.
