Great work ... I really like the use of icons and text... Its something I am struggling with on my own WIP map. I also like the muted colours... I think I may have to revert to using less bright shades on my own map - makes it seem somehow more authentic.
im noticing a lot of maps with heraldry popping up lately
very nice. I like the land/sea textures, though if you can stomach it I think Naeddyr is right about the hatching around the mountain base, which will make a huge difference.
Thanks guys. Yes heraldry is funny and interesting to use. It also helps to play with labels sometimes since you can put some of them in a key and not on the map. About the moutains, I'll try to find out the way to fix it though without re-drawing the brushes... Maybe draw some hatching brushes that i can put on moutains bases, don't know yet.
Beautfull map. I will mark this thread =)

Yes, it looks very good. The mountains are a bit better now, Max. Still not my favourite style but definitely an improvment. What really makes the map work for me are the colors. I love the soft green and the red icons and i also think the forests look very good. The heraldry is also top notch. Looking forward to the finished map.

Still I reach out for the Stars
Thanks I still trying to figure out how to improve moutains base in a satisfying way. Hopefully this will come soon but for now I need to progress more on the map to see how it turns with more areas done.
But well, I guess it won't be finished before a while though , I still have a lot to do on it and at the moment I'm just working on a tricky way I want to put some major points of interest.
