    Oh, nice! I like the change from the hard water lines to the blurred ones. Makes it stand out less while still giving a clear sense of where the shallow water is.
    Also, the forest has vastly improved since my last post.

    I am liking it.

    2 observations that i want to say.
    - Maybe is a good idea, you add some "feathering" in you borders, if you are using PS. It will cut the edges in ur shape, maybe will looks better.
    - Still in borders, if you are using inner/ outter glow to define ur coast line, i recomend you use a lower brush, like 2 points and some high opacity.

    Guess with this 2 points you will get a smooth transition btw the coat line and the rest of the map imho.

    Thx for your congratulations !

    My new map :
    - add new forests, mountains, rivers
    - add lakes, deserts and savannah
    - cut some mountains to change them on volcanus.

    For volcanus, I want to materialize them. I will try with smoke on their head or with red lava. I don't know.
    My next change is : add some toundra and add some elements on my both deserts (1 erg and 1 reg).

    Aquaris : I tried to do what you said but I'm a beginner and I wasn't suceed. Have you an example ? Perhaps, if I see the result, I can reproduce them. Sorry, my technical is very basic for the moment but this WIP help me to progress.

    Something I just noticed about the rivers:
    All of the rivers taper and lose width as they approach the ocean. Rivers collect more water as channels and tributaries, including little creeks or brooks too small for maps, flow in. As a result, they don't grow narrower as they get closer to the sea, they grow wider.

    I come back with my new map. I draw again the river in the good way.
    I add color on mountain, some road, some cities, some borderland, some swamp, some text.

    Aquarits, I try your tips but I don't complete it. I failed between when I apply feather. I'm on GIMP and I don't find this item.

    Thank for your comments !

    PS : the blue on the south of the map is just a random color for toundra (it's the place of the toundra)
