    Given that there are two month-long mapping challenges, the Guild hardly needs a designated map-making month. There's always such a challenge available.

    I know, but NaNoWriMo is ... different. More insane, really. Anyway, it was a joke, don't mean to hijack the thread.

    So here are some new Details. I added more unique Locations like those demonic craters to add to the overall feeling. It is interesting to play withe brushes to settle the Mountainranges and the overall Landscape. I think I will stick to this Style for a while.

    Ok, so that does look good!

    Minor thing that will help the Mts: You need to shade the area around the mountains base to better blend into the terrain. Some of the Mts look haphazardly placed without this affect. I have no idea how to do this But it would help an already very good map.

    I believe their was a thread at one point dealing with this. Anyone?

    When i keep going on like this, I will start dream of inked Mountains. I am somehow not so sure anymor if this fastens up my map creationing so much anymore. On the otehrhand this maps is detailed as much as nine maps, so I still have lots to do. I would have never imagined this to be so time consuming. I think I already spend about 50h on this...

    Btw.. had a really quick scan of the thread and didn't notice anyone flag this up but your rivers are all kinds of wrong. I hadn't looked that closely at your screenies before but now that I have examined them closely your rivers.... are kinda fubar. :S

    Time consuming it is ... imagine how it must have been when they had to do woodcut maps back in the 16th century or so!
