    I like the sharper contrast on this one and the stitched rings but I think I like the last ocean (flat gray) although I'm sure that you have more planned so it could be a moot point. Still a very droolable map

    I had pretty much forgotten about this, and how well done it is.

    Nice update. I like the new sea, but I'm not convinced by the dotted stroke lines around the shore. It looks a little too patterned whereas the rest looks hand drawn.

    I agree..... perhaps dumping that element or using a low displace filter to get a bit of randomness to the "stoke"??

    Ummm... are my eyes just messed up, or did you invert the cliffs from the previous versions? Originally, it looked like a mesa rising up from the ground on the mid right side. Now it looks like a cliff depressed? Of course, my eyes hurt today, so I could be just seeing things...

    Still not keen on the dotted outlines I'm afraid, but I'm happy to accept that it is just me

    @jfjr - you noticed! I was able to reuse by switching the N and S sides as the author wanted the region as a mesa filled valley not a plateau.

    @torstan. I'm with you there. I need to figure something else out... Maybe it is the regularity of the spacing that looks off...

    Gives me an idea.

    I thought something looked different, but I couldn't figure out what it was... and I agree that it may be the regularity of the spacing that makes it look "un-natural".
