    Yeah, I've been attempting to think of a better way to display it, thats why there hasn't been any updates =P... I've been plowing through my inspiration folder trying to find a way to display cities a bit better, and the only ones I've seen that I want to "copy" (just the basic idea not a full replication) have been a few maps from Ascension and you haha I'll come across something that will work..

    but I did come up with a pretty dashing text though bahah gotta love tutorials!

    It's looking really good! Regarding the narrow vs. wide rivers, I've found I prefer them a little wide otherwise they sort of get lost in the rest of the map.
    I too am in the middle of redrawing a continent map for a world I've been working on for a long time so I understand the agonies it causes!

    As to the lil towns/cities - I'd get some color variation in there so that they aren't all one solid color. Whether you use some color or a pattern doesn't matter too much, just something to break it up a tad - and I mean just a tad, nothing too extravagant so lower the opacity if you need to, keep it subtle. As to the title thingy, the letters are moved up and down too far, in my opinion. I'd make the C the biggest since it's a capital letter and make the I smaller, and bring everything more inline than where it is now so that it's easier to read. I really like the concept, though...just hard to read.

    Much better, the letters are much easier to read being closer to inline. Pretty cool, man - cities look a lot better (to me, at least).

    The city texture looks much better now, seems much more substantial. Bravo!

    Looking good very nice progression. You have a nice selection of texture and color variations on the land . Looks great. Might need to carry it over to the water elements as they seem a bit bland in contrast. Have some rep.

    Thanks for all the comments everyone, and school is killin me, I want to work on this, but I never find time to actually do so, ugh... But regardless Lostatsea, I plan on doing something with the ocean, but when I do, it usually makes the image rather large, making it harder to manage, so I'm procrastinating it like I do all my school work bahaha

    Update of the zoomed in, do these fit as hills??

    And I added another text piece here =D

    edit- so besides the color difference in the hills, do they stand too tall for them to be just "hills?"
