    Default CC3 Annual 51 test map

    Well I don't have a name for the map yet but I just had to try out the Jon Roberts style. It really looks amazing.
    So I've been sitting for a while tonight testing things out and this is what I've got. No names yet, but I probably try to add them soon enough.
    I hope you like it, and Jon if you read this, thanks for the style :-)

    Cha-ching, man. Wow. The forests, meh but this is going to help them sell some product. Yowza.

    @Ascension - I can agree on the forest, it looks a bit flat in my opinion. But you also get the single trees that you could combine into a forest, whicj probably will lokk a lot better, but also take some more time. I see if I can squeze in the time to test it out.

    But the style will absolutely sell them some copies of the annual, and CC3 I think.

    Utterly stunning mountains....but yeah, the forest could do with lots of improving. CC3 is coming a long way forward!!!

    And Torstan is about to be immortalised too - how cool is that!

    Nicely done...

    I think the issue with the forest is that there are no trunks. All of the 'single' trees have them.

    <----- what he said. Also, I think the blurriness of the forest does not match with everything else. Did Torstan do the fields also(they look great as a texture)? I think those could use a bit a blur to get the edges to blend in to the surrounding land a bit. Overall, this is quite beautiful though....

    Yes the fields are from Torstans style as well. I try to add some blur to the edge of them to see how it looks. I agree on the forest opinion.

    Cool... did he do the structures as well? I just noticed they were different (more sketchy??... cartoony??) that other CC symbols I have seen.. They look good. The only thing I don't really like that much is the delta... I assume that's supposed to be a swamp right? I am not sure why, but it just looks kind of off... perhaps it's just me.... But as everyone else has said. the mountains rock on toast and should really help sell this pack for Profantasy.

    Super nice clercon. How cool is it that, Torstan being emulated in this way? The few points others have already made are on and I have to say again, the mountains are fantastic.
