    Post January Entry: Western Mythkir Bay

    I decided I want to do a contribution to the CWBP, as small as it may be, since I think the project is a great idea.
    I picked [Map 29] (Mythkhardia), and I'm planning on doing a regional map of the western part of the bay.

    The only problem is, I don't know how much time I will have on my hands later this month, so I guess I need to push this out as fast as possible.

    I only have the outlines of the land and the rivers yet, but I'll try to wrap this up during the coming week. I hope I'll be able to deliver.

    Rivers are exaggerated.

    I like it, looks pretty natural and realistic.

    Thanks. I added a border and some very basic terrain.

    Another quick update. More hills/mountains and some texture.

    Yes, it's dark. I tried to hint at the infested lands spreading in the south. A light color scheme just doesn't cut it for plagued lands.

    I was sick at home today, so I tried some things, maybe it turned out a little too dark, reflecting my mood.

    Absolutely not too dark...you get the feeling across nicely. If I buy a house there I'm going to look in the northwest corner.

    I got you covered.
    Well... I'm really sick today, and the doctor says it's probably not going to be pleasant for a few weeks. So I decided to add some labels as long as I'm able to. I hope I can pick this up again later in the month, but a labeled version of a WIP is a lot better than to leave it unfinished.
