    Post Big Test Map

    I'm trying to really nail down my style. Hopefully this map will help accomplish that... Here's the outline; white is land, black is water.

    So far so good, the coasts look good, the general shapes look good. So, uh, good job!

    Thanks you all. Here's a much more updated version. I'm doing a lot of tweaking right now, trying to get the right colors, textures, etc. I'm trying to remember what I'm doing as I'm going, too, so that I can hopefully recreate my style consistently. The only complaint I have right now is that it feels as if the scale is skewed between the mountains, the amount of land, the water, and the forests.. I think it could just be a matter of texturing and color, though.

    The water on the second one is SICK! Just a great texture. Rep++

    The first one is ok, but unless you are doing it purely for representational reasons, I would suggest spending some time making more than the one mountain symbol as they all look the same.
