    Wip A New World - WIP

    A bit more complicated than my first simple little map. It's meant to be reminiscent of Africa or the Americas during the age of European colonization and have a 19th century feel to it. Eventually there will be a mountain range running down the middle with the colonize area to the west, desert to the west, and tundra in the north. Not sure how I want to depict the mountains yet. If anyone has suggestions that would fit the theme that would be great.

    Here's an update with mountains and vegetation colors. Still not sure about the mountains but they'll do for now.

    I think your mountains need some shading/shadows to give them a sense of height. Right now they look flat.

    I couldn't come up with textured mountains that I really liked. That's another lesson for another time I guess. Here's the final-for-now version. Hopefully it looks like it's been through a war.

    Really cool! I like the theme, a little fuzzy airbrush of black at a low opacity would help give your mountains some definition
