    I really like how this is looking but I can't help but think the ice at the bottom looks more cloud-like than ice-like.

    I completely revised the glaciers.

    I guess this is more or less finished. I have somewhat lost the drive for this map.

    I don't know but the map looks a bit empty (not that emptyness is a bad thing but...). Also not fond of the labels stroke but it's just personnal taste I guess. By the way, nice map as usual

    True.
    It tried to follow the original map. I didn't really succeed as I placed settlements where they shouldn't belong. If I now start to add additional elements that have no base in the original map, then I guess I miss the point of this challenge. That's the reason why I probably won't do much more with this entry.
    It was a bad choice from the beginning, I should have used another map.
    By the way, thank you! ;-)

    Working a bit on contrast/colors on the lands may help to avoid the empty feeling?

    For what it's worth, I think it looks pretty decent. Like Max said, it feels a little empty though. Also, I don't think you had to slavishly follow the base map to the last pixel; it said use a DF map as a source.
