    Hey! So I've been tinkering around with things, and I discovered the glory of the "Color Dynamics" option on the hoozit tab for Photoshop brushes. My life is changed.


    So I'm re-imagining the map. The first one I pictured to be a large, table-sized map for this major inn on a roadway. This one I imagine to be a wall-sized guy, commissioned by the king and executed by a master cartographer. I'm really digging what I've done with the trees, and I am satisfied with what I've done with the mountains, but I can't seem to find something I like for the wheat fields. Any help? For reference, the section of the map (shown below) is roughly 40 miles wide. At that height, details like wheat fields would be hard to see, but I imagine this being a little bit of an artistic concession.

    Can you show a bigger WIP from the new map? I think I can answer more easily if I could see the whole proportions.

    Here's the whole map. The clearings in the north-central and southeast parts of the map are the ones with the largest areas of plowed land.
