    Thanks guys.
    @ Generalhead : that's probably true, I gave the map a slightly more light
    @Whing : Nothing was really fixed at the beginning. I started to draw the overall shape then put reliefs. Regarding reliefs, I added rivers. Names came at the last, invented while making the map.
    @ Whing and Lingon : True, a layer was missing (hidden) As for the grid, this wasn't intended as a latitudes/longitudes grid but rather as a four-figure grid reference.

    Ok, the grid makes more sense then. Personally, I'd have gone for normal lat's and long's, but… whatever Lakes are looking better now!

    I think my only criticism so far is that I don't like the lack of definition between the outer gray border and the map itself. To me, it's too soft.

    Thanks for the answers - Max - !
    I agree with Diamond. I would see something more strong as a transition between the map and its border.

    I agree, I'm not fully satisfied about that soft transition, I'll fix it.

    Wow, this map is really dark looking...

    I like it however it seems to look at little grainy in the bottom right corner. Maybe it's just that color.

    It definitely looks better lightened up, great job.
    I love the way you labeled all of the territories.

    This is brilliant!
    I love the way you play with textures, light and everything.
    It's amazing to see how you master the techniques, whatever the style you use. You were born to be a cartographer, no doubt to me
    Great work, keep them coming !

    Thanks much! Attached is an update (actually not that much but well...) with sharpened grey outer border and the two base sidemaps added
    @fm : yep that's the combination of texturing/color work in this area; For some reasons i like the feel it has
    @Dain : hehe thanks much...Though I wonder why I wasted my tima way from it for long years

    MUCH better with that sharp border.

    What are the side maps going to represent?
