    It's coming along very nicely

    Are those cliffs I see on the southern shores? Very nice indeed

    One thing came to my attention: Why don't you north the map properly.
    From a grafic designer's point of view the slight angle is questionable.

    Thank you guys! I have not touched this in a little while but will pick it up again soon!

    Freehand: I oriented the entire map a bit to maximize the land surface I could get while being able to include the landmarks I wanted to have in the map. That explains the odd angle.

    Chashio: Those will indeed be cliffs!

    Arinthia - A region in the world of Skenth-arinthia-005.jpg Just an update here. I don't get as much time to put into this as I'd like. This image is half the size of Skenth map and I love how it loads so much faster etc

    I love those mountains - but then, the whole thing is incredible.

    My only criticism is that the compass rose (and possibly the border) look stylistically different to the painter-like style of the map itself. I'm also not entirely convinced by the yellow dots for towns - same reason, doesn't quite fit the style. But that's just my opinion, and frankly, you could scrawl rude words all over it and I'd still enjoy looking at this map.

    Thanks HoarseWisperer!,
    Lol I'll refrain from putting curse words all over anyways

    Thank you for the comments on the yellow dots and the compass. I am going to consider changing both... You are not the first to mention the compass being a bit out of style. Maybe I can rescue it somehow.

    I happen to like the compass. It goes very well with the outer border, and makes a nice contrast to the painterly land. I'm on the fence about the town and city icons; I'm not sure how you'd show them all in a 'painterly' style without waaaaay overcrowding everything. I think it's workable as is.

    the key (labels and symbols need to be bigger. as they are they're lost amidst the lovely painting
