    Wip Sep/Oct Entry: CASTLE BIGROCK

    I have here a small village and a castle, but to make it fit the theme of this month, the whole place have been invaded by a mad druid and his animals.


    (Yes, related to one of my maps) XD

    Of course this is just a start, im suffering with the hill.

    You have a ton of options from the looks of it. One idea might be to draw some "ridge lines" going from the center of the hill towards the moat. They could be just in the grey rock area you have created, not all the way to the center. Just the steep part around the perimeter. Also, you might try to make the transition between rock and grass more smooth. I'm excited to see how you continue with this map!

    Looks nice, but I do have some nitpicks:

    - The texture for the hill looks a bit weird, the same goes for the walls?
    - The trees look good, but are all clones. Maybe create several treed (mirroring them, shrinking them, etc). It will look more natural.

    That's a good lookin forest and I like most of the rocks but some of them look faded on the right where the sand kinda blurs them.

    Wow, this turned out pretty well! You made a huge leap from the last version. Forest does indeed look great.

    I agree the forests look great the only thing is the fields look a little weird like you need some more texture in their and they are a bit angular but besides that it looks great.
