    I used to think green and purple didn't go together either until someone posted a map here a while back with those colors and I realized that it's the shade that's important. So if you want purple roofs with green grass then I say go for it, I think it looks good. But I wear t-shirts and shorts 365, unless I go sledding with my nieces then I put on some jeans (they think I'm part dragon cuz I never get cold) or if I go golfing then I wear plaid shorts with Hawaiian shirts. So I may not be the best judge of style but at least I don't wear black socks with flip-flops...I'm not cool enough, yet, for that. I wonder if I can work in some paisley into a map....
    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.

    I bet you could get quite a cool landmass from the paisley pattern.

    Ok, here's another 3 castles to add to the mix. I'm gonna do one more in this first pass of brushes then move onto other things I need like the city icon.
    I'll re-upload the zip file in the original post once I've done the last castle.

    Edit: Oh, I should probably add for anyone who might look at them and wonder if these castles are maybe too big to shrink to a usable size that I personally think they still look like obvious castles even when shrunk down to 10% of their original size.

    It's okay everyone, Altasilvapuer is here! Apparently I haven't repped Ramah in a while, so I managed to crack the rep whip a little for all of us.

    Now quick, all you stalkers, crack your own rep whips. Ramah deserves more!

    I gave my wee rep-bump. Those castles are awesome. I'm sure they'd work at 10%, but you'd lose some nice detail.
