    I like what you're doing here Klaus. It is really interesting how you've taken such an unnaturally perfect shape and kept its essence but made it feel plausible. Not an easy task!

    Beautiful! I really dig that misty forest...

    Yes this is looking great! What kind of background texture did you use? It's a kind of linen, right?

    The forest is really cool. I do think that the mountains could use some...depth...to them. They seem a bit flat and simple imo (especially in contrast to the really "alive" forests).

    I'm very much a fan of that more natural star shape.

    Yeah, but if he gives them TOO much detail, they'll unbalance the map. Right now, everything is really well balanced; no one type of terrain or feature hogs too much attention.

    I'm still alive! Generally speaking, at least, since I can't exactly feel my arms; moved to a new house. It's amazing how much stuff one can accumulate without even noticing. On the bright side, I found some long-lost chocolate bars from a stash I had forgotten about; on the not-so-bright side, they tasted like sawdust.

    Drew the general layout of the main mountain ranges. Might change some of them around before adding colour, since now I need to include the huge chasms that criss-cross the continent in my friend's original map and I am not yet entirely sure how to do that. Will report with the results of the experiments.
