Woah, those pink trees are out there. I think I would tone those down a touch unless you really want that to be the focal point of the map. Do you plan to paint anything into the water?
Hmm I will lower the vibrance of those Sakuras, that should help toning them down.
I haven't done anything with water yet. I have few ideas but I will try them when I finish the land. =]
Coming along very nicely! The white in the forests, is that meant to be fog? That's how I read it, and it's really cool if that was your intention And yes, toning down the sakura trees is a good idea.
Spledorthed, the sakura could do with a bit more lightness. Otherwise excellent, love the style.
I love that cloud!
That is looking beautiful. A few things/suggestions though. The waterfalls (especially the big one in the NE corner) looks too blurry for the style. The small clouds over the mountains is wanting a gradient over them in the very least, if not also a few lines of swirls inside. I'm not too certain about the thick dark-green outline of the small black trees; the slightly-blurred trees on the southern-most islands seems a more fitting style. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to seeing this as a final product.
Here's a link to my deviantART, because I haven't got better things to write here (yet).
