    I largely agree with Scott's assessment. overall, these look great, but in some places the mountains are a little too, as he puts it, "crystalline". But great work!

    I love the mountains and don't think they're overdone at all. I think they make a bold statement and fit in with the map a lot better than most mountain techniques. I'm not particularly wild about the texture in the sea but it's hardly a biggy.

    Great stuff. Look forward to seeing more.

    If your not thinking of going professionally towards something in in the Illustration or Graphics arts, you should really consider it! I love the maps man, totally show a completely new style, good grasp of colors and how to use them. Congrats!

    I also think the mountains are sharp/crystaline (which is a very recognizable sign of the PS bevel layer effect), but in my opinion they match well with the stylized/illustrated nature of the maps. This is not an attempt at a sat photo.

    The colours are very saturated, which, again, fit will with the illustrative nature of the map.

    Very nice maps indeed! They have a fairy-tale feeling of high adventure. I'd like to be a hero in your world!

    And by the way, I think the desert map is the best!

    Wow. Are these part of a world or do they stand alone?

    Can't really add much different from what the rest of the guys have said, so I'll just add: Damn. Those are something special.
