    Hmm...not sure i "buy" those forests. They are, in contrast to the detailed mountains, too simplified/symbolical...and in that shape (pointed, triangle-like) too close to the mountainshapes so as to make it really hard to differentiate them from the surrounding mountains.

    I like the coloring of the map...very smooth and easy on the eyes.

    Looks great so far Diamond. I'd maybe try to go with smaller triangle shapes forests to see how it goes.

    I concur, sometimes it's difficult to see whether you're looking at a tree or one of those mountain line thingies. But overall a very good map, and a great idea for tree icons as well! I like it!

    Yep, I think you guys are right. I think I'll A) add some light shadowing to the mountains and B) reduce the size of the trees and see how it looks.

    It's a lovely forest style, imo! They will probably work even better at the smaller size though The colors are great, I really like that touch of purple in the sea.

    Okay, here's a portion with those two fixes in place - smaller trees, a bit of light color in the mountains. Thoughts?

    I like the update more than its predecessor. Smaller trees works better. I agree with Eilathen, though-- the trees do seem a bit too simplistic compared to the mountains, and it is a bit hard to recognise what they are without a legend or some forest-like colouring. Great looking map, though.

    THW

    THW: I'll experiment with adding some more 'texture' to the forests. maybe I can do some kind of subtle horizontal hatching under it to give it another dimension.
