    Wip Egracien

    Something I've been fiddling around with now that my illness has mostly passed (heat exhaustion...horrible, put me down for 5 days). My aim is to develop this with maps of the towns n such...give myself something big to occupy my time instead of just sitting around and watching the world pass me by. Names are still up in the air but some are set and I've a lil more work with the graphics to finish it off (compass, etc.). The coat of arms is some clipart I found and stuck together. Fonts are Anglican Text, Agency FB, and Bergell LET.

    Your work, as usual, is breathtaking. Just jaw-dropping stunning.

    Something's missing, seems kind of stale and flat. I think I'll darken the forests a bit and tweak the random color splotches.

    Darker forests would help I think; I can barely tell they're there. I love the written background.

    As usual, your work simultaneously makes me green with envy, makes me stare goggle-eyed, and gives me impetus to improve my own craft.

    But yeah, the forest could be a tad darker. Also, the black text underneath is really faint and hard to read.

    Looking beautiful as always! Perhaps more colour / texture variation across the continent? The rivers are barely visible, but I really like that, not sure if it was intended though.

    So here we go, not much to really see unless you have good eyes but I spent three days making tons of minor tweaks. Font change to Amerigo BT italic. I think it looks too bumpy now with the forest tweaks so I may work on that.
