    I am calling this done.


    • Redid the forests (again). I noticed that I had applied the bump map to the actual colors instead of the 50% grey overlay AND that half of the forests were bump maped directly and half were bump maped on the overlay layer so they did not match.
    • Added Labels
    • Created a simple scale
    • Created a simple Compass


    I hope this is at least passable to everyone...

    Great color palette. I love that you "yellowed" it up compared to your first couple of WiP's.
    Something witty and pithy

    A few last minute tweaks. This is probably it.

    Thanks! I appreciate the enthusiastic review.

    I shall be anticipating your vote.

    BTW, you liked the original ocean texture, what do you think about the change? I thought the original was just way to stretched out looking and wanted something a bit closer to what I did in my "playing with mountains" posts. Something a bit more subdued so to speak.

    Would love to know the steps in GIMP to make your swamp feature.

    Cheers
