I left a lot of the sea visible for the WIP because I ran into a problem in my last map. I had a lot of legend of labels to put in, and I didn't leave enough empty space so I ended up having to add in a whole lot of sea water after everything was done, which was annoying. To prevent that issue this time, I decided that I'm going to leave a massive amount of water and then crop whatever that's not needed when all the labeling is finalized. But other wise, this is indeed an island relatively far away from any many landmass. :)
(Been away for a few days, sorry about the inactivity.) I think I'll leave the background as is, except for maybe I'll tamper with the rivers and lakes a bit more. We'll see. Next off: cities, towns and labels. (WIP is half-sized.)
### LATEST WIP ###
The rivers look much better now. I really like the forested delta in the North West.
I think you should work on the forests. I have the impression they look somewhat top-down, while the mountains have a nice iso feeling. Maybe adding stronger shadows on the right side?
Yup. That has now been taken care off. Good call, sir.

(It's frigging 3:30am and I really should be sleeping.) Alright folks, let us tentatively call this done. Any possible tweaks from now on, if any, will probably be minor cosmetic stuff. Comments, suggestions, spelling corrections, and policing of any kind is still very much welcome. And yes, that is one helluva sexy compass, if I must say so myself. :P

It is a very nice compass indeed.
