Looks good so far.
This is a small slice of a commission I'm working on right now, which I'm reasonably satisfied with, but I wanted to toss it out on the forums here to see if anyone might have any comments about it, which I might then use to improve upon this
Looks good so far.
Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

The colors look great, forests look good, and the mountain ridges are especially effective. You might consider lowering the opacity of the grunge/scratch overlay though; it's right on the borderline of being too distracting. Overall though - awesome.

looks really good... love the canvassy structure - the green pops alot but I don't know if that should be changed

Thanks for the comments guys
Update on this. Toned down the vibrancy somewhat, and finished the rivers and lakes. Some of the mountains need to be fixed up so that rivers don't run up and over mountain ranges, but that's being worked on
Very nice colour scheme, moutarde, and great textures too.
