    Wip Another quick update

    It may seem like nothing changes in between these progress shots, but there are several hours of work between each

    So far this is looking incredible. The details of the rocks are topnotch, I can't wait to see how you do the forest!

    I'm very weak with tress, I'm going to have come up with a technique I feel comfortable with. See the really lousy tress on this map (I have to redo these):

    Basically, I want them to look hand-drawn and not too realistic, but I have no reference really. A forest is probably easier, but these are so up-close so you have to make out every separate tree. I'll keep you posted

    Hmmm, no not really. It looks too sketchy and I dislike copy and paste Plus, these are conifer trees (in myst, not on jungle island). Hmmm

    Hmm, I do like the style of those trees though, having a perfect top view, so you only see a shaded circle/tree shape. Then you could have clusters of smaller and bigger trees to make it more realistic. No worries man, you got this!

    I'm not sure what you mean by copy/paste as I was figuring you would draw each one. The point is if you take a look around at some of the Architectural drawings that show trees you might be able to do something like them with your own twist. That's just the first one I found on the net. You could also go to google earth and zoom in somewhere that has a tree and just draw that. Just some ideas that might get you going in a direction you like. Based on the rest of your work I am sure you will conquer this however you do it.
