    Was waiting for you to add the cities and other remianing items, but I think this is really quite good.

    Forests seem OK to me, maybe a little "flat" (for lack of a better word). Like everything else tho. *tick tock tick tock *

    The mountains and hills are lookin really good, I like those a whole heckuva lot.

    I like that forest texture much more than the other. This is really coming around quite nicely.

    My main comment would be that the shallows seem to even a width around all the landmasses to my eye (looking in detail i see thats not the case, but first impression seems that way). I would suggest ever varying the size of them more, or introducing some sort of blending

    What I love:
    The mountains - these mountains really rock!

    What I don't love:
    The forests - they don't feel above ground but rather sunken into the ground.

    My guess is that you are using beveling when making them - switch the direction of the bevel from down to up (or vice versa) to see if that helps any. We need to create that illusion that they are higher instead of lower than the ground.

    Looking great though! Good job!
