    Thank you! Yes, now that the base shading is finally done, I can start adding details to the island, so progress should be speedier now

    Default Highlighting

    A base pass of highlighting done. NOW I can start adding details I'll send along a 100% shot of the map to show you how rough it is in full zoom

    Those rocks are gorgeous! Great stuff. And 100% done by hand?

    It looks very good and detailed - authentic and, as others have said, well-shaded. However, hand shading is quite the labour of love, no? I've always found it almost ... devotional ... in the patience and zen-like flow state it requires.

    Well, they are done with a Wacom Cintiq in Photoshop, but not computer generated no.

    Well, this particular map, has been a literal bitch to shade... It's just so damn much, and so long slopes that makes it just tedious. BUt when I'm not exhausted by it, it definately is something meditative over it. Listening to music and shading away. The best part is working in 100% and now and then zoom out and see the complete island and seeing that it's actually looks like an island

    A bit of an update here. I'd say this map is about 80% done
