Still experimenting with the pseudo-hand-drawn style (as rendered by Terragen) here, so not a major update other than to "finalize" the coastal waters, refine the shore line and add in some latitude/longitude lines. For the time being, I'm working with a flat surface (i.e. no elevation data) so that I can refine some of the other elements before launching into the actual terrain features.
My concern, at the moment, is the latitude/longitude lines. Something seems a bit off with them. The overall goal is to give a bit of a perspective feel to the map, and it seems to me that the longitude lines should be curved in some way, but my brain says that doesn't make sense. Since the overall area of the map should represent about 207025 square miles (455 by 455), the latitude and longitude lines currently represent about 1 degree each in terms of the globe. I'm planning this to be centered somewhere around 45 degrees north for a moderately temperate climate, so I'm not sure if the area in question would show much of a curve to the latitude lines. If anyone's got any ideas on this, I'm all ears.
Bah! It's a good thing I'm wearing one of those "If you can read this shirt, I've fallen off my bar stool" shirts today. I meant the latitude lines not the longitude lines.
