    Added the majority of forest elements, though I haven't detailed the background trees or added their trunks yet. Couple more forest elements then onto swamps and deserts I think.

    Were you looking at maps of Westeros when you made this? Only kidding! This looks awesome! The little details are my favourite part - they really bring it to life!

    Wow, your map is looking gorgeous. It's very "fairytale"-esque.

    OK 70% of the hand drawn objects are finished though still need to detail the background forests. Then on to swamps and deserts. Finally to labels, lots and lots of labels.

    This is awesome!

    I like all those little details. In think, they make the map look as if drawn by some kind of fairy with a knack for maps



    Kind regards,

    Wow I'm really impressed and I do love your small, hand drawn features and the overall style of the map.
    Aside this, I hope you're planning at least a border on this map. As it is, it is already great in my opinion; but if you have the time to work on a consistent border and legend and/or similar things, I think this map would definitely stand out.

    You got excellent drawn elements! It gives a lot of "cachet" to the map imho.

    Definitely need to put in some firm mapping elements like a good border and key in the same style, but I'm a bit out from finishing the basic layout still and have to get the labeling done. I'd hoped to get the background trees shaded and highlighted this evening but I thought of too many other little things to waste time on so they get their lining but no highlights or shadows yet. Unless there is some element I can't live without I am done with the hand drawn images for it. Need to do some hand lining on the trails and on the water section but I have to work out the appearance I want out of those first.
