    Wip July 2012 Challenge Entry: The shattered Realms of Altostratus

    Ok, here is my try on this challenge. I have stitched different clauds together to have a more or less decent form and used them for coastlines.

    I like the distribution of land and sea. However, I believe the texturing is too 'busy' and draws the attention away from the actual map. But that's just my opinion.

    I like the mountains and texture very much, but I feel the boundary between sea and land is a bit too thick & sharp compared to the mountains.

    Beautiful! The colors are very pleasing to look at, and I like the shapes you ended up with by stitching clouds together. Only thing, maybe lighten up on the biggest lake texture... it's too dark and regular to my eye.

    Nice work. The green line around the coast helps a lot and the mountains are fantastic!

    Ok here I aplied a new texture. Its based on dot brushes which are on scatter, size variation, colorvariation/fore/backgroundshift, texture and so on. Its hightly inspired by EpicReds Aethir Map. Its always fun to look at other mappers Work, and trying to figure out how to do it.
