    OK. That's what I wanted to know.

    OK, here I've laid down the base colors. I decided to stick with a sort of light ink washed look for this map. Next I'll work on adding a bit more color variation as well as light and dark contours.

    Thanks Cereth! Well I've been stealing time away from my dissertation to work on this. I've finished detailing the forests and some of the mountains. I still have yet to color the grasslands, deserts & canyons and hills. Here's a small update of the forests & mountains.

    Cheers,

    Well it took longer than expected, but I finally finished coloring the mountains. Still have yet to do the hills, grasslands and deserts.

    Great stuff especially considering you are drawing with a mouse. I know how tough that is.

    @Gidde, Thanks, they took a bit of time to finish.

    @Jaxilon, you know, it was tricky at first, and I think it would still be pretty difficult If I were to attempt to sketch something more substantial than what I have, but after some practice it turned out to be not as difficult as I thought it was going to be. Still, I'd opt for a tablet over a mouse any day.

    @Lostatsea, thanks.

    Cheers,

    I still have a long way to go if i want to draw such amazing maps. I especially like those forests. I'm looking forward to see the finished map.
