I've missed this map before, but how do I begin to say how much I like it?
Colour choice: 5/5
Font choice and placement: 5/5
Originality of forest symbols: 5/5
I love the solid colour around the coastline (was that a Bohunk borrow? I can't remember seeing it quite that clearly in his maps). I also love the simple and effective border.
The only thing I don't like is the fish. Don't ask me why - I don't know.
I agree with Ascension about the rivers, given the placement of your mountains some of them look like they're going uphill.
Everything else about the map is pure magic though.
Thanks for the tips, steel general and ascension. Thanks for the compliments ravells!
I indeed got inspired by Bohunk's style.
I will post an update tomorrow
I fixed the rivers and ate the fish.
I think it's getting close to finished now.
Very nice map, woekan!
The aesthetics are nicely balanced with the content.
Very nice, looks great to me.

Just to let ya know I used the note paper filter in PS Elements to get the blue border around my landmass; a neat effect.
Beautiful map by the way!
