    Hmm..THAT makes me nervous a one sentence reply..But thanks..

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Todays update:

    I have to say I'm really liking this map. It's not "pretty" but it's functional and I'm enjoying sprinkling little details here and there.

    Some more little details:

    1.More people
    2.Some "weathering" on the roofs of the buildings
    3. A boat *as Forest Gump* "...that's my boat..."

    I think it's just about there now. I don't have a hope in **** of winning this challenge but that's ok this was a neat little project.

    Every time that you make a map you learn something. Whether it be what to do or what not to do or what you can do faster or different. So that's a good thing. Don't worry about winning...took me a year and a half to get a win. So on to the map. The forest looks better with the extra colored trees but the shapes are very regular. No big, learn how to make more trees next times. I think your houses could use a bigger shadow to help them stand out a bit more. The forest could use some shadows, too.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    You are absolutely right..(as usual) I had fun making this map and had to learn some stuff in the process. I might have sounded like I was disappointed that I think I won't win. I'm not..I can use this map in the new "Kingdom Of Shendenflar" website that I'm working on. I have to get all of this stuff up somewhere..god forbid if my house catches fire....*Gasp* thats a LOT of years of my life.... Oh and I'm going to take your advice about the shadows..

    Shadows per Ascension's suggestion. Looks better I think.

    Place seems a bit small to support two taverns and an inn, but milling saw is thirsty work.
