Trying out the Saderan style, and need some input.
Since it has been a long time since I mapped anything, I decided to try out some of the tuts here at the guild, and kinda liked the Saderan tutorial. The two following Images is what I produced the last two day, and spent about 2-3 hours on each, just to improve my skills.
Overall I am pretty pleased with the small one ( There I was more or less following the tut word by word.
On the larger one, with the silly names, I had a bit of trouble with getting the mountains to look the way I wanted. I first went for a large mountain range look, but making a single large/high mountain made it look flat on the peaks. Is there any good tricks for making a large mountain and avoid the "flat top" issue.
I am also re-learning Photoshop for this, so if you got any recommendations, I would appreciate if they were worded in a noob-friendly way .
As you, I prefer the small one. It looks pretty cool but I think you got a problem with the "too large and pixellated coastline" for the inner bays/lakes (especially near the "mysterious town").
