    Thanx guys!! And tnx Chashio to sat "well done", always dunno when the map is finished!
    The finished Map thread is here: Egos - Izumo

    Now for this area is time to exercise some new challenges. Always having problens with borders, since my first map i was like dodging using simple borders, Max is always pushing me to make something better but i was focused in somethings in maps, wut not made me able to put my concentration in this.
    This area is strongly influenced by angels. I have Valkyries, ppl that make sacrifices for angels and gods and a large area of a ruined old empire, devastated by the war btw gods, angels and mortals. Have 2 mystical areas with some faeries and hobbits. So this time i will try Schwarzkreuz's tip, work in a personal border for my map. Angels and Feathers basically.

    Now going with my initial topo and including some textures. Still need understand wut Chashio said about the shading in mountains, that is why i included it in the map.

    I like your crosshatch pattern on the mountains, are they scanned and than placed or a brush set of yours? Anyway, i would tone them down to a very dark brown, sometimes pure black is too distracting from the map itself and you endup with too hight contrasts.

    Basically what I was saying... it's hard to determine where the peaks are if you shade both sides of the mountains.

    I agree with her. If you want you could add some shading in the middle of the mountain to give it texture.

    That is right. Let me show something that i have working for my new map. The shape of the realm isnt that great still, is just the first step to start work.
    Have some new icons that i am working too and want to show to get some sugestions. Made some simulations during the work to see how it will work, till now i am liking.

    btw, posted the Lands of the Gods in finished maps : Egos - Lands of the Gods

    The "smudge" tool(I use GIMP, but I believe PS using the same term). It's a way to "drag" a color and is typically used for blending two different elements. Lot's of artists use this technique with colored charcoals and a number of classical paint artists use it via dry brushing. In computer generated art, there are other ways to get the same effects, but I prefer the smudge tool most of the time.
