    Amazing! I don't know what else to say... I know that if I put out a map it will lack both the authenticity of a hand drawn-looking map (such as this one) and the detail of maps made by better graphic artists than myself. Not that I am a graphic artist at all in fact... but anyway, great job.

    Yep, cities and forests look MUCH better now. This is going to be amazing when it's done...

    My only comment would be that the text is perhaps a little too toned down. It looks a little washed out. Otherwise, beautiful work so far.

    I have to agree with Solxante, the text is faded a little too much.
    This cavern is below all, and is the foe of all. It is hatred, without exception. This cavern knows no philosophers; its dagger has never cut a pen. Its blackness has no connection with the sublime blackness of the inkstand. Never have the fingers of night which contract beneath this stifling ceiling, turned the leaves of a book nor unfolded a newspaper.

    Gosh, I think the text is just right! Hey Soixante! Haven't seen you around for a bit! Hope all is well!

    Lovely work Cereth. I just love the washed out feel which ages the map beautifully.

    I got quite a bit more done today. I'm trying to find a nice balance between legibility and the aged look with the text. I like the way it looks now, but we'll see how it looks on a test print before I settle. If it is too hard to read when printed out then I'll sharpen it up some more, but I like the aged/washed out look as it stands now.

    Looks fantastic, even though I'm not the greatest fan of faded maps ... I find them hard to read sometimes. Still, to each his own
