    Ok, so all I have left is label the rivers, make a key, scale and compass...and any tweaks.

    One look at this map and a very particular theme muic sprang to mind. Nice work Ascension

    Really a great map. I love the mountains. However I'm not a big fan of the drop shadow on the coastline. Makes the continent look like it hovering over the ocean. But that might just be me. Still a wonderful map.

    lol, NOW the drop shadow makes sense. Can we have a picture of an aeroplane leaving a red line behind it? Great concept, A! Glad there's been a break-out from fantasy this month.

    As usual you've come with something fantastic, but I'm not so sure about the font you used for the title. I think it clashes with the rest of the map.

    I sort of ran out of ideas so I haven't touched this until today, haven't touched any maps for a week. So I slapped up some finishing stuff and this will probably be the final unless I feel like tweaking something.

    yeah, as usual it all fits together perfectly. Love the vibrant color and mountains, and that font you used for sea-labels is great too (couldn't place it, what font did you use?) cheers, DJ

    Oh yeah, forgot the font list: SF Fedora for the title (Venture also works but it's expensive); Adventure Subtitles for the subtitle; Movie Poster for my by line; Aramis for the numbers; Bible Script for town names (there are many similar to this font, like Aramis, so I won't name them all); Arkansas DB for rivers; Anastasia for islands, plains, forests, and deserts; Bolton Italic for mountains and hills; Birmingham for bodies of water. The bigger the font the more I fiddle with its parameters so it doesn't look like the normal font straight out of the box so your results may vary.
