    Wip A much neglected continent

    Just started on this one; this is the "first wip posting". Basically I am working on the western coastlines right now. You'll see where this goes quickly I am sure.

    Basic coastlines are done, but they still need to be optimized.

    I think the style might actually work if you just toned down the outer blue a bit.

    Here is my take on this continent that I haven't spent much time on over the past year or so. I really like where you're going with yours.

    My current problem is that I ended up with coastlines with way too many nodes. Inkscape can't handle this graphic anymore. The optimize path tool loses too much detail and I really, really do not want to delete nodes manually.

    Did you ever finish this? That's the perfect world layout for an up coming D&D campaign!

    I manually re-drew the coastlines and ended up with something that Inkscape can actually cope with. Work can now continue.

    Alright, a little more work gives me a new continental shelf as well. Colors are placeholders.
