ok, so I think I've finally gotten a desirable result, after hours of pixel drawing on COREL paint. Its certainly not high quality work or anything, but I'm pretty sure things are coming along nicely, compared to my earlier works.
WIP thread here: Corel-Aeven and more...
Anyways, I'm always open to suggestions!
I like it, the water is definitely improved from the map you linked, but what are those blue lines in the top right mountains above Whiteheath? if they are streams it seems unatural, but if there is a history behind it then it's ok. Also some of the labels, the small ones around Aurithorn are a bit hard to make out. other that that it's great.
yah the blue around there is a sort of magical radiation type zone, I was trying to make it look like a volcano with blue lava coming out of it, so yah , just me trying a new type of region.
as to the labeling, could you be more specific as to which ones? my comp is showing them all pretty clear to me.
Cool idea, with the magic blue lava-type stuff. Try giving it a glow/aura, that might make it a little more clearly mystical.
