    how about this tutorial from Schwarzkreuz? instead of making them as brushes make them individual elements - copy/paste them and then merge the layers. its the same method i use to make my own maps

    Thanks Vorropohaiah Im gonne take a look at this too

    Edit: hmm well I tried several things (work with patterns -mass pattern or individual ones, the tutorial above and such but nothing seems to work good on overlapping those damn forests. I come to think that I have either to keep it like it is right now or redo all the thing in a different way...

    So here where I am so far...Added some rivers, worked a bit more on western and north western areas. I made the northern forests more dense than the others (as for now I keep them like they are until I possibly deal with overlapping). I temporarily removed color on trees.

    Thanks Caenwyr. Some advances : work a little more on northern area, cleaned borders from terrains, incresed opacity of the forests and erased some portolan lines under the compass...

    Also worked on a few cities/towns icons brushes. Not sure to use them at the moment though.

    Wonderful work, I love your style. The only thing that bothers me is the waves, when looking at the inland detail the wave-detail on the coastal lines and in the seas look too big. A little like showing up with a monster truck at a classic car-meet. And of course this is a highly subjective matter.

    Yea, I think the waves looks ok when you look at the whole map, but when you look at details closer they seems too big. I'll probably have to reduce their size. Thanks for the comment, Urxed

    Edit: Just checked it on a pdf at 100% size : The waves looks ok at real size and fit well the elements

    As a little side note of pure awe; the detail is sick. The gate into the mountain, the waterfalls and how the rivers flow... just sick (and beautiful).
    If I knew how to use rep I'd rep you to death.
