    Next trying to do something interesting with the mountains but I think it's looking a bit like a dog's dinner!

    Ravells - pretty - well, yeah! But "just another"? I don't tHiNk so. It's a great look, and no dog I ever had was so well fed!

    Ahh, GW - but even peons can't necessarily knock off at 5, not when management has bought the whole "do more with less" mantra... like mine have. Wish I'd had time this month - I couldn't touch Rav's level, but a world is so fun! All those lovely serendipitous bits that cause whole cultures to spring up, the discovery as you stick lines together and a planet appears. I for one am enjoying all the entries, and NOT least of all this one. Wagner as a name ... has a nice Ring to it, don't you think, Rav?

    LOL Ravs you crack me up. I for one think the little textures you have in your land masses are great. I think if you keep going on this it is going to turn out just fine. Don't give up. I know I tend to get bored looking at the same thing all the time so I like to do whacky stuff like invert colors and darken/lighten things up just so it keeps my engaged. Keep going man, just a few more days and it'll all be over. The dogs will have to go hungry at least until then.

    lol, thanks guys. I'm just getting over a really virulent strain of 'flu so haven't had time to work more on the map - I'm feeling a lot better now (although have still lost my voice), so I may have one more WIP left in me before the end!

    It's a very nice map. The competition is very strong this month.

    Logically, I don't think many ships are going to follow routes across the Open Ocean between Sambar and Carabaltrea and Zing Mora. Even if ships are setting off from Denning or the Pastiche Islands, it's closer and a whole lot safer to circumnavigate Sambar and take the Eaftern Croffing. Viewed as a spherical body, you have some nicely clustered continents on one hemisphere and a big, open ocean full o' nothin' for the other hemisphere. No biggie, and does nothing to detract from your cartography. Given the time remaining it isn't worth dealing with, but I just figured out why this looked funny to me and thought I'd share. Sorry...

    Awesome Rav

    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.

    Cheers all. This is the final WIP, I guess.

    @ Su Liam, believe me, I had no idea what I was doing with those sea routes!

    Beautiful, Ravs. I really like what you did with the mountains, and I love that color scheme. It's all about the sepias, baby.
