    Break my legs and drag me by the beard; I love this piece! The mountains and the desert are awesome! I love the colours!

    I do agree with the people above, however I feel the desert is a tad too saturated and/or bright for the rest of the map. Of course that depends on what you plan to do with the seas: if you're planning on giving them a less subdued/dark colour, I don't think the brightness and saturation of the desert would be a problem per se.

    All in all a very good job, I absolutely love the dunes!

    Klaus van der Kroft - Thanks very much!

    Caenwyr - Thank you! I doubt I'll be changing the sea/background, so I'll play with the desert some more and see how it looks with a darker, less saturated colour.

    I like the map, I think you did a very good job so far. The desert is particularly well done and goes well with your dark mountains.
    The only thing that disturbs me is your rivers (too flashy for me), but I see it's still a WIP, so I assume it will be better in the end!

    Thanks Ilanthar. Yes, the rivers are just placeholders, and still a WIP.

    * Edited the border and title. I'm not liking the title very much, so I'll probably completely redo that later.
    * Added a bit of colour to the compass.
    * Did a little bit more texture work on the terrain (mostly in the top & upper-left regions)
    * Added a Legend box

    I've been playing with the desert colour, but I just don't know which I like best, so I'm attaching 3 versions:
    WIP-08 = original
    WIP-09 = darkened
    WIP-10 = darkened & desaturated

    Not much of an update, but I've been sick with the flu and haven't felt well enough to concentrate on more than just a few minor tweaks and additions. I'll try to post a more significant update next time, once I'm feeling better and can spend some more time working on it.

    I'm assuming you're using brushes for the desert?

    No, I couldn't find brushes that worked for what I wanted, so I used a stock texture of actual sand dunes.

    Thanks. Yep, I was lucky enough to find a good one that was shot at the right angle.
