    @SK: The mountains aren't set as brushes; I drew each one individually. I've been meaning to get around to doing a brush set in 'my' style, but every time I sit down to do a map I just say, 'screw it, I'll draw them all again'.

    @lostatsea: Thanks!
    I'm not completely sold on the interior waterway stipple either; more experimentation to come.

    I'm not sold on the interior stipples at all, but the map is coming along great anyway. c:

    Bye the way, Mr. D, I think you scared your competition to death already. Ha.

    I try to find the time to battle with you here.

    Okay, here's three different versions, one with stipples in the water only, one with stipples on the land only, and one with both land/water stipple, but removed from around rivers and in interior bodies of water (in other words, left only around shorelines).

    Thoughts?

    (Don't know if the thumb scraper is going to get messed up by three attachments, but...)

    Either water or land works for me. Not both though.

    Nice map, Diamond.

    Yeah, I think the middle one looks best. (just the land stipple) I don't really like the stipple on both though.

    Great stuff.
