    Looks fine to me.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Another update, fixed the hills to blend a bit better, added some roads, and a bit of marshland I just need to add in some more villages, and do something to the water, and I think this one will be nearing done...

    Alright another update!

    So for the most part the Region map of Cael is "done" (maybe some minor fixes), completed the Ocean, fixed Hills and what not...

    I adjusted the Desert in the Continent view, loaded in new icons for cities, and updated the Legend, but just need to add in a political map of it.

    My newer project with this, is a city side map... This will be my first attempt after my blunder of Belirus 3-4 years ago =D Anyways it's slow going, if anyone has any ideas, pointers, fixes anything I'd love to hear it!

    Nice job so far Yander, I'm really digging the great text images that you are adding! The map itself is lovely. The only thing I found a bit off was the line running between the two cities/towns/towers between the two sets of mountains on the far left-hand side of the map. Is this meant to be a road, or a wall, or something else entirely? If it's a road, it looks different from the other roads on your map.

    Cheers,

    So I've been playing around with housing ideas... cause the block houses I was using before, just don't seem to "cut it" for what I'm trying to pull off I guess... So I was wondering if this idea (the actual finished part on the bottom of the city section) actually works for a slum-ish/group housing... Any ideas, or suggestions, or even possible ways to make this pop and work a bit better let me know!

    The only issue I have is that all the little side streets and building walls all run N/S E/W which is less likely than main streets.

    hmm yeah I see whatcha mean...

    so I tried something a bit different, just like before I have 2 layers a base pattern, and then one I drew over it to create the "houses", using that same idea instead of drawing I used a pattern template of houses, which is the lower set of houses, I also duplicated the layer and flipped it to give it more depth and randomness like a slum would mostly be, but the upper set of houses I used a different base pattern, and the same top pattern, no duplicate layer. Do these work? Is one style better then the other? or should i scrap this idea and try something else??

    edit: So I did this other idea earlier, it was odd, but I'll post it up too, let me know!

    I really like this man! But I have to say, the solid blue of the ocean looks kinda weird compared to how much texture is in everything else. But man! It really looks great!

    EDIT: Didn't realize there was a second page. Saw the update. SO AWESOME
