    Some progress on the map. Since I'm not fully satisified with the color work on it, I slightly added a redish desaturated tone on the second version. Thought it would make it less "classical" and give it kind of darker and wilder touch on it. Thoughts anyone?

    I prefer the red version, the colors seems to Be better balanced but try to use it less ob the forests than in the Land

    Thoughts? The color balance is a great deal easier to look at with the red tone. At least on my screen. The green version makes me nauseous, but that is likely just me. Color balance aside, the map is nice.

    Yea that's what I thought. I was kinda fed up with the greeny one. Alright, let's go for red tone. Thanks for the comments guys!

    This is just a matter of taste. Forest is really perfect. Montains are great. The coastline looks like it have gone trough some Photoshop filter effect. And the white goo on the rivers looks unfinished or too much. But hey, the map is awesome. I would have bought it! Really nice with the smoke coming out from the volcanoes! Maybe add tiny waves on the water with white foam to blend with the rivers better?

    Thanks Obbehobbe Eh well it's still a WIP with a lot to do on it. I haven't really worked on coastline and water yet. Though rivers were done to my eyes, I wanted to give them a bit of a rough look.

    I could've sworn I responded to this! Or maybe it was during a time recently when the server was having problems I don't know. I like the map with the red hue and I think it is going extremely well so far!

    Heh...funny. If i look at the little pictures in your post, i like the left one better (the green version) ... but to my surprise, when i clicked on the two maps to look at them in greater detail, the red one looked better. So, to sum up: i have to agree with SK and Chashio.

    Seems that everyone would go with the red hue one. I went further on the map with this one, hopefully I'll post an update soon
