    Upped the font to 9 point and got the blending better.

    I'm never going to get all these rivers labeled.... thinking I need to move on to cities, roads, countries, etc or I will not finish!

    Deleted some rivers so there would be less to name. Added cities, working on roads....might get this done before deadline...

    It's beautiful Rob! Maybe just a tad of blur on the speckly landscape might work? Unless you're going for a speckly landscape! (which you probably are!)

    Post Uncanny River Valley

    It's very odd, seeing that yet knowing I didn't make it myself.

    If you want to make it even more uncanny you could switch the fonts - Myriad Pro for physical and hydrographical features and Minion Pro for political features.

    Looking great so far - particularly that Lake in the SE

    The roads seem a bit heavy with pure black - perhaps one them down a little? However they are nice and clear.

    Post Stick in a fork and call it done.

    I'm going to call this complete.

    I leveled up the roads so they weren't solid black, put a half px blur on the colouring to make it less dithered, bit of dodge and burn on the mountains, and added graticules.

    Here is the alternate map, as required for the rules with a 10x10 grid overlay.

    That's just fantastic.
    I like the color scheme of Your map - It looks so pretty, and so natural (rivers are perfectly setting in the rest of terrain). Great plus from me for playing with my favorite details - city's and connections beetween them.

    I keep my fingers crossed for You.
