    Wip June/July Lite Challenge Entry: In the Clouds

    Tomorrow I'm gonna fly to my family and the upcoming flight inspired me to place the challenge map in the sky. As you can see I worked a lot with textures. I hope, I can finish it in time, but that depends on my time with my family.
    Please comment and critic so that I can improve the map

    I plan to add a road from a starting home of a hero to the end of his journey. With river, tree, waterfalls and several quest/story obstacles.

    Wow, that's pretty cool.
    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.
    -J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

    It's pretty, but it's hard to see the map under the clouds.

    Very nice, but I agree with Hai-Etlik, you might consider reducing the amount of cloud cover.

    Neat Idea.

    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.

    It's an old idea, well-executed.

    My only criticism is there could perhaps be more of interest on the continent. Settlements, perhaps, or rivers and lakes.
