I like your waves.
I was commissioned to make a map for a novel in the style of a map I made earlier. The idea is to make a black & white version and an ink-on-parchment version. So far I have done the main mountain range and a woodcut effect around the coast.
C&C is appreciated.

I missed that first map, it's really beautiful! It's self contained and everything is where it should be.
I think this is a fine start (even though I'm not a fan of heavy woodcuts in the oceans, just a preference thing).

Here is the latest progress on the map. I wasn't very comfortable using someones else's brushes and taking full credit for the map so I made my own. The rivers are pretty much finished except for their tips. They were made using RobA's plugin for tapering rivers in GIMP.
The mountains and forests have been completed since the last update. I'd like to thank Ramah for the tree thing. It definitively saved me a lot of time of from placing every single tree in the forest. The trees came out of the tree thing a bit aliased so I ran them through inkscape to smooth things out.
Looking Great Galli! Can you talk me through a little bit how you get inkscape to vectorise the tree-thing result? I've tried using the autotrace feature in drawplus to do this but because the lines are so thin in comparison to the size of the total png, it doesn't work and I usually just end up with a blank page.
