    Post Final - More or less

    That's so far my final map.

    Added legend, goods, trade routes and some deco.

    This is a map made by a foreign trade guild for its members how to trade in the Ynchong Empire. The map shall create an 'Ynchongese' feeling, that's the reason for the quasi-Asian style labels on the map and an Ynchongese dragon at the compass.

    Very nice and colourful map. I particularly like the compass and scale which looks really awesome.

    You might want to change the word "deads" to "deaths" though in the legend.

    Good luck in the contest.

    This looks great, Sapiento. I particularly love the guild seal watermark in the ocean.

    Thanks for the hint. Hadn't controlled the text enough, obviously.

    Oddly, I can't see the latest WIP. I wanted to see your compass rose. I recently did one with a dragon on it and it was a lot of fun to put together.

    Very, very nice Sapiento. You did the icons yourself again?

    Wow. Nice touches to finish it off. I'm amazed by how much this stuff can up the look of a map. I'd rep you but don't think I can yet.

    Well done, I think the only thing you might consider changing is the double-headed eagle seal. It is the only 'non-oriental' item on the map. Maybe a phoenix or something? *shrugs*
