I decided to enter this challenge with a map depicting the greek mythologicial hell, the underground realm of Hades. Though I'm going to use most of the classic myth elements, it would be a personnal interpretation, very inaccurate regarding the description made by the old mythological texts.

I"m loving the background grunge!
Wow.. those waves are just awesome! Did you use specific brush or image? Or you did draw it by yourself?
My Gallery on DA:
I can only agree with Felipe, thats an awesome ocean. Very nice to see more Personal works of yours lately, I often like them more than the commissioned ones.
It's been said already, but the waves are amazing: and to my mind, using a fractal texture to create them seems like genius. I love the way the waves all seem to be descending upon Danaid's Basin. The rocky crags and cliffs around the Titans' Prison and Shades' Land are also incredible.
The main problem I see with the map is in the labels, especially River Phlegeton (fire). I'm not particularly good at labels myself, but the way that label twists so much looks wrong, to me.
Also, my knowledge of Greek myth is a bit hazy these days, but wasn't Charon's ferry meant to take souls across the Styx?
Awesome as always! The waves are great, but something makes them look top-down to my eyes, which clashes with the iso mountains. Maybe that's just me though…
