    Looking good though. I like all the location icons - they blend into the map really well.
    Your absolutely right. I redid my texture bump map layer since I accidentally blurred out seconds of the texture (the paper texture). When I did that, I forgot to reduce the opacity of it as well as I jacked up the opacity on the cloth weave texture at the same time by accident. I noticed this right after I posted it, but did not have time to fix and repost, so here is the update now.

    Only two years later, finally an update to my campaign map... added one city, nothing else.. at this point, just adding cities, labeling and perhaps a different compass are all that remain... perhaps before the end of the year...

    Funny how to start thinking and playing with how to do something and right afterward someone comes along and shows everyone. I call this the grasslands update. Just a few days ago, I started playing around with drawing grass... then Jonathan Roberts(Torstan) posts his mini tutorial... so.. here is the results. Very timely and helped a lot....

    Looks good! I'd knock the saturation down in the grass a little, but otherwise it looks good to go.

    The sprigs or the background color? The sprigs are already down to about 60% layer opacity.

    I always have trouble finding "grass" colors in the right range. Most of the time, I end up going way to light and looking rather neon...

    Hopefully, this is better.
