I still prefer the trees on the left, but it's your map :P Looks great either way. Also I'm not sure if those are legitimate names or just to test location and such, but I'm glad I'm not the only person who is uncreative enough to have "xxx Valley" "xxx Lake" "xxx River". :)
Different styles of mapping forest can be used to indicate different types of forest: conifers v. deciduous, thick v. open, normal v. enchanted. So you don't have to stick to just one.
Well this looks promising! My compliment on the excellent style!!
As for forests, I'd pick the one on the right since it matches the isometric angle of the map better in my opinion. Actually, I think in general it actually fits the style as a whole better. That said, the individual trees could be a tad smaller and slightly less regular.
Thanks everyone. Yes Viking, that was my thought too, the trees on the right go better with the isometric style. As for slightly smaller, exploring that. I haven't had a chance to return to this map, have a couple of jobs to work on, and last week, I had parites and industry functions to go, and then went upstate (Catskills area of New York) till late Monday with friends for a long weekend. I did do some fun character designs and sketching while up there.
So currently working on two paying jobs. Hopefully I will be able to get back to this next week or this weekend. Meanwhile here's a drawing I did this past weekend.
Thanks for all the feedback.
