    Adding more inking details to the mountains and making them pop off the page with highlights and shadow. Changed the course of a river a little bit...these things happen.

    Finally completed the ink work on the new and old mountains making up the western range. Some sort of river canyon evolved there, along with more evidence of volcanic activity in the distant past. More shadows and highlights are spreading. A few new clumps of trees are showing up amongst the peaks.

    I feel like I need to put some important points of interest in that area--like a lonely wizard tower or the entrance to an under-dark realm--so that it somehow justifies the amount of work I put into the region. The truth is that the work itself, the practice, and the excuse that this challenge gives me to draw maps like this is rewarding all by itself.

    Thanks to everyone for all the great, encouraging comments.

    Sometimes it's fun to turn off the inks layer and see how the highlight and shadows make the forms work.

    Here is the latest version with the inks turned back on. Just starting to add in features like castles and such...

    This map is amazing! I particularly like the lake in the southeastern caldera, with the island in it. I almost love the without-ink version as much as the original!

    This map looks beautiful. My only complaint is that I'm not quite sure I understand what those boxes are doing. They seem to be zooms, but of what? Maybe you could shift them off to the side a bit? I will wait patiently and perhaps all will become clear...

    cheers,
    Meshon
