    Wip June 2014 Entry: The Land of Evening's Shadow

    Lostatsea's 'The Corruption' looks so lonely there in the thumbnails section alone! Here's something to keep it company.
    So, the title is something I tagged on there because I have no idea where I am going with this one, but the base map itself really caught my imaginations, so let's see where this takes us, shall we?

    Most of the colors are just placeholder layers while I figure out how I want the hills & grasslands to look.

    I've been working with some of the features, experimenting with styles. Here are some mountains and a grassland pattern I'm playing with. I'm not tagging either, as they are just experiments.
    I'll take a look at them in the morning with fresh eyes before making the call on them.

    I like the mountains, but not the grass. So I redid the grass a different way. I'm happier with this version, but it might be too bright. I think I'll revisit the grasslands after figuring out what to do with the hills.

    Great work so far! I like the mountains a lot, and I think it might look really good if the hills got a similar treatment. I like the grass texture north west of the mountains more than the rest. Maybe the texture is too strong, it sort of looks like the area to the east is a vast but slightly indistinct conifer forest. Keep it coming!

    cheers,
    Meshon

    I am working on the hills, but they unfortunately take much more detailed attention than the mountains. I'll try to get them finished today.
    I wanted to try to vary the assorted areas, so they don't all look the same, but I cannot for my life recall exactly how I blurred the western section exactly that way. I'm hoping some combination of blurring, burning, and tinting will give me the 'varied but cohesive' look I am after.

    Thanks very much for your input - it helps alot to have another point of view!

    Here's the latest version, now with illuminated hills and consistent grass effect.

    The grass looks VERY bright. You might want to desaturate it! :::

    Good job so far!
    Have a closer look at the mountains, the background is peeking through.

    I am trying to figure out a way to turn that into slope vegetation. If I can't, I'll have to remove it.
