    I'd have to agree Sage, it will (is) my entry ... I'm just messing with the colors to get a feel for the new tablet.

    I have had a love/hate relationship with those Kohinoor pens for 20 years now. They are totally sweet but I've never had one that doesn't block up after about 3 days, and after 2 days of trying to clean em I usually just throw em against a wall and buy a new one But man they make some sweet lines.

    Don't redo them just cause my eyes might be bad, get some other opinions first.

    Tell me about it... the only trouble I really have are the .13 pens... they are just so damn tiny and delicate that it doesn't take much to break or otherwise damage the wire when you clean them. Kohinoor has a service plan... just send them points to the company, and they'll replace or fix them for a small fee... a much smaller fee than buying a whole new pen.. most certainly.

    Well, its not that, I don't much care for them either... lol. If I don't like the look of them then there must be something wrong with it ... and I drew it so I know they suck....

    I knew it had to be me, it was the heavy line of the coast that was throwing me off ( I think). Great job!

    I really like the overall feeling to the pen drawn map. I have a special place in my heart for these styles.

    I have to say however that the messy stuff (I think it is the swamp) looks very out of place compared to the rest of the map. I think you would be much better off drawing clumps of grass (the 3 blades of grass that that meet in the middle) and maybe some cat tail images to represent the swamps. Again - do it will the same tool you used to draw the other parts of the map - keep it consistent.

    I will be watching very closely to see what you come up with. Fix it up - you have time.

    lol dorpond.... I used a pen... a real pen its the only tool I know how to use
    at least most of the map was done this way. I may yet fix it, I do have plenty of time, I'm just kinda lazy
