    That's starting to look really good. I think that if you get the coast to be more like the thin lines of your mountains it might look pretty cool.

    I changed changed the coastline and also the geography a bit. I hope the land no more "looks an awful lot like Middle Earth". At least not an awful lot And I hope the coast and river lines look compatible with the mountains.
    And I also played with the textures a bit.

    Rivers looks a bit noisy or pixellated but overall that's pretty good. I'd try some thinner rivers though to see how it goes.

    It looks like the Maps in Fantasy Novels, and capture the feel for me. The size is always a matter of what amount of time you want to spend on the map. Some smaller maps can be sketches for bigger ones. I am using mostly Mapsizes from 5-12.000 Px. But you see, I seldom finished one this year

    I remade the coastline and the rivers in a hi-res file. Also had to remake the colours and textures (not sure if they are better, worse or the same).

    I liked the previous colors and textures better.

    You are right. I was just too sleepy when I finished the rivers yesterday night.

    Yep. They are a big problem. So big that I won't make them at all. I'm afraid they're above my abilities.

    This map is really starting to look nice! Keep it up Gallien! Forests can be tricky. There are a few different ways to go though. I'm sure you'll figure something out
