Thanks Eilathen and SK. I thought that woodcut-style coastal lines would fit this map right :/ SK what you mean "faded lines"?
I would prefer fading coastal lines, but well its just my Personal taste
Outlines of the coast repeating outside the coast and fading into the water.
I like the coastlines! I'm feeling inspired to try that style myself.
I like the coastlines too. I think there's a fine line to walk when you're doing horizontal lines like those; just a little too thick and they look bad, too blotchy and ugly, but too thin and they look too computer-generated. I think you found the right balance.
"I like a look of agony, because I know it's true."
Verry Impressive, cant wait to see the other two iterations of the map to compare the changes.
I think the coastlines look good. A nice look that blends with the rest of the map.
What puzzles me is the capitalization conventions in names. At first, I thought you were doing initial word only capitalized, except words that are names (proper nouns) in their own right. This fit for things like "Castle of tears", "White tower", "Koros river", "Fortress of Dorsok", "Citadel of Brecz", etc., but then I spotted "Komor Lake", "Blue Mounts", "Black Castle", etc. While you can make up your own conventions, there's no apparent convention being following, and while it is possible for a cartographer to capitalize at random, I find the haphazard treatment distracting.
watching ths maps i almost hate you lol.
just a observation, is right put the kingdom borders in middle of the mountains? I believe that they use mountains as reference for the borders, then um kingdom own the land and the rest with the mountains took the rest for. They cant measure the borders exactly in the mountains. Specific saying about the borders in the lower right side and other in Kolnev.
