    Okay, made some decisions on the moutains. The line art wil now look like this:

    Thanks for the compliments. I like the style too, but is still needs tweaking. I thought I'd play with a different hand-drawn style to all the iso-mountains we've been seing recently, but now I understand why people do iso mountains - much quicker to draw

    I first started drawing those kinds of mountains because of dragonlance maps ... if you ever seen any of those... that was why I originally started drawing them in that fashion because it looked different and cool and I wanted to show off to the ladies...

    as a maybe, you might try a bit of shading from the ridge down to sort of show some height and elevation .... just a thought tho it looks good like that

    Had a look at the DL maps - I see what you mean.

    Okay, lots of progress here. Added a second dodge/burn layer to get more detail on the mountains. Also added snow and grass and darkened the sea.

    Looks very sweet. Reminds me of some of the Topo Maps of New Zealand. Try this link

    Try the saving to disk the PartB Hi-Res-JPG and look at the bottom left peninsula.

    That's a brilliant image. I'd already been to the google maps satellite pics of Norway and Sweden fjord hunting, but forgot about NZ. Daft considering that the NZ fjords are the ones I've actually been to.

    Okay, detailing and dodge/burn on the forests as well as a little more colour adjustment - this time to the grassy areas:

    Quiet weekend - and the threat of a game on Wednesday night that this map (and indeed the rest of the maps!) needs to be done for....

    Thanks for the compliment. I'm very happy with how it turned out - especially the mountains.
