    I agree, love the mountains and the forests.

    If I had to "pick" on something and it's not a big deal really...I think the ocean/water is to dark. But again that's just me and I tend to keep my water lighter than most.

    Man, I am uncertain which is better as I look at the thumbnails; the darker ocean or the lighter... Man, eyes go so buggy after a while, don't they? LOL

    I'd say, pick whichever you like but I'd cast my vote for the darker water...I just seem to have this need for everything to be dark, like my coffee...but I'm probably the only one Looks good either way really.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    While I prefer the lighter colored water (which does look good by the way), the decision is ultimately yours. So go with whatever one you feel is better.

    I like both versions of the water, but they each give the map a different atmosphere. The darker one makes for a more brooding feel; the land is dangerous and wild. The lighter one gives me a sense of commerce and high adventure.

    Either way, it's rather blurry at full resolution, but the thumbnail looks fantastic. I suggest that once you finish it up, you save it out as a somewhat smaller image.

    Those mountains are gorgeous! The shading really improved them.

    I love the consistency of texture that you have going on here. Nice map.

    Well, I am not sure if my polishing did any polishing but I thought I would update one last time.

    Thank you all - it was fun! Good luck to all of you who did a fantastic job this go-round! You are all masters at your art!
