@ Jaxilon - thanks ^^;
@ all - thanks for the feedback! It's been quite awhile since I last was able to update the map, but I've managed to get quite a bit more done. I finished the forests, and added in the jungles and the swamp area (oops - forgot the dry lands area just north of the swamp). I also did a second pass of the political borders. I like that there's now some color on the map, but at the same time I'm not sure it really fits the overall map style. I'm actually just now thinking that solid, semi-transparent colored lines, probably on top of everything but the labels, sort of like that "highlighter" effect on some old maps might be better, instead of the glow.
As the map stands now, however, I think it's wrapping up pretty well. Again, any and all feedback is very much appreciated!
