    Probably i will skip the border, it was just a test and just wanted see the reaction using it. Maybe it can get better, but probably i still need some skill to make it fits with a primary image.

    You mean the boxes where i labeled. i felt it too, looks quite artificial, but i dunno how to improve it using Photoshop tools. Probably draw it manually?

    Max was trying to say something like this too, when i try use anytype of box, i lose the way that i am trying to follow. Look ths maps that i am using as reference, none using significant boxes

    Yeah. I think the problem might be that yours has a mix of eastern symbols and English. The vertical orientation of the other is very neat by itself, on the maps you referenced... they line up into rectangular chunks and look very ordered (they're also hand-inked), whereas the English is less so. And your picture symbols (hexes top right, rectangles bottom left) are another type of item. Putting the different "collections" into boxes would help to organize them. However....

    If you really don't want boxes, I'd suggest centering those few English titles that are a tad off balance and then tracing all of the digital objects and text by hand so that everything is more cohesive. In fact, I suggest it even if you do use boxes.

    Better but I'd make a suggestion. I'd try to change map format, make it somewhat more square, put the map itself on the right (or the left , as you want ) and all the informations (title, samourai and nija things, things now in bottom right) on the other side vertically. So you' ll have a vertical dynamic with those informations that will graphically match both the verticality of the map and of the parchments with japanese text.

    The left one is very pleasing to look at, to my eye. Better use of space.

    The map is nice, well done aquartis!

    The mountain forms get a bit mangled with such heavy shading on the nearest-to-the-light edges and on the peaks. Other than that, I like the style.
