Here is my third attempt at this map. I'm not sure about the rivers, but my main issue is my forests. I'm trying to figure out how to add forest without covering up the underlying terrain so much. I've looked through a bunch of tutorials... have I missed the right one? I'm pretty sure y'all can help me.
I've marked the areas I'm concerned about. I did the "Photo realistic Trees in Gimp" tutorial but was not happy with the result. Most of the "edge trees" turned out black. It also didn't give a sense of a vast jungle which is my aim on the south eastern coast there. It is possible I did something wrong or missed a step.. I've been known to. Any ideas? C&C welcome.
