    Excellent work as usual Ravs. Where do you get your inspiration for place names though?

    Thanks, Rob! I was running out of time to think of anything suitable Fantasy-esque! I just went to the members introduction forum and started running down the list of names!

    I'll try to do a video tutorial for this. It's really quick to do. The only bit which requires any artistic knowledge / talent is the mountains and as you can see from them, I really don't have much of that, but I'm sure if I fiddled with the mountains for a couple more hours and looked at references I could have got something more decent.
    It's a real nice map Ravs, especially the mountains are really great

    Only four hours to draw this map? Are you taking drugs or something like that? It is unfair, I have to spend days and days to render something quite good, and you only four hour for beautiful map.

    When I post the tutorial you'll see how easy it was to do. Seriously, anyone could do it and in probably less than 4 hours.

    I like the overall design, but I think you relied on pre-set filters a bit too much. They come out being very strong and a tend towards the "gimmicky" IMO. The color choices are great and the overall appearance is nice until you start seeing all the different textures.
    Something witty and pithy
