    As for the rivers, I think it's just a matter of experimenting so in that factor i'm not very helpful.
    Thank you! Believe or not but i am very opinion dependant. I mean, if i am working in a new area, such as map making, i am very sensitive when it comes down to feedback. I know it's kind a childish and stupid. Especialy as i am 30 years old, with wife and kid, and i really should know better hehe.

    Like thanks to your feedback i took another look at the swamps and fixed them. Thats why the 2nd perspective is so valuable. To me it was obvious that those greenish slimy ponds were lakes. I just forgoten that the rest of world is not actually sitting in my head looking with my eyes. Now after the fix i love the swamps even more!
    And i might have figured out the rivers. But i need your opinion guys. Take a look at this and tell me what do you think. Pond + 3 test rivers of diffrent width.

    That looks fantastic, especially the middle river with the strong shadow.

    I think you could probably use all three widths in different places, like broadening a river as it flows to the sea or lake. You could create some interesting swampy deltas by varying the widths of the various channels splitting out at the delta.

    Ah, that's a shame. Well, hang onto your work in case your financing improves! Be a shame to waste all that effort...
