    Well, we're working with different software, so I'm not sure if photoshop has something that would work, but I'd try robA's wispy displace technique in Gimp (for the transition from ice to water). It's a displace map with the map set to a noise layer, 20x -20y then -20x 20y. Although what you have is decently wispy already, I think. A good test is to wrap it onto a sphere afterwards and see if it looks right. I've always found it so difficult to do the poles in an equi. projection that I usually give up and use a different one

    Thanks again Gidde for that advice, and I finished up the other cap as well using mostly the same technique (was rather hard since it was pure experimental, and didn't remember the steps =D) Anyways I was running through some of my old maps and found one in this similar style thought I'd go in again and save the styles for future use and use it on this world map here, whatcha think?

    haha forgot to make the ocean coloring more "smooth" eh I'll fix it another time!

    I'm not all that fond of the yellow, but I'll tell ya that pole stretching looks awesome. Your coastlines have just the right amount of fjord-type stuff, not too much, not too little. Looks very believable! I also like the coastline look you have there. It's a nice sturdy base; now lets see some elevation

    Edit: My dislike of yellow is a general, personal dislike of the color yellow, if you like the color I see no logical reason not to keep it!
