    I always envy your Basic skills in composition and your use of landmass forms.
    Cant wait to see this taking shape

    My mountains often look like that to begin with. I actually have a little watercolor map in my sketchbook with mountains and hills penciled to that effect, each shaded with a red-brown brushstroke. It's simple but effective. I might be tempted to apply a grunge mask to the crosshatching to break it up a bit and subtle-ify it.

    Sooo... I decided to completely alter the shape of the region. I decided to go for more of a complete Mediterranean vibe. The northern landmass is home to a Roman Republic equivalent, in the east is a faux-Persian Empire, and in the south are the pseudo-Greek city-states.

    On a more serious note: I like the new landshape. And you have a relatively simple but effective mountain-style, i like it ( .... ).

    seriously, this is getting annoying :p

    is that the whole map or a cropped section? doesnt seem like the whole thing to me. have to say i think this is a bit of a step down rom the archipelago you had before, which offered a lot more scope for interesting details in the map, though thats more of my personal taste than anything wrong with the new one

    @Eilathen: glad the mountains meet with your approval.

    @Max: thanks!

    @vorro: as a matter of fact, this IS a cropped and altered version of the map below that I finished Friday. I actually went to this close-up version because I felt like the big map didn't have enough room to include more detail...

    Are you going to erase the partial mountains that bleed over the edge of the map? That's the only thing that looks a bit odd. I like the land-forms very much. And that Circle map is Fantastic!

    Finished up (most of) the borders and cities, and started adding in some regional and national labels.
