Next steps in the map (hopefully tommorrow):
1) water texture. I may make some sort of wave brush with a scatter effect, and go the easy route. Otherwise i'll try some creative filter use
2) finish up the mountains/hills
3) find a good way to texture jungle
4) same as 3), but for deserts
5) figure out how to do cities. I've done a combination of different circular-shapes, but none of them turned out how I liked them.
and of course, everything still has to be named, and backstory/culture written. Staying away from language etc, since this is my first shot at this and I don't exactly consider myself an expert since I only speak two languages (English, and bad English).
