    Might as well go to the same source as you got the original tutorial from: Ascension did some experimenting with volcanoes shortly after he arrived. A search should find it.

    edit: And never apologize for pixels. Bigger is better! As long as you're not stretching the forum viewport, that is.

    Hey man, good work. Map looks very beautiful!

    One thing though, if I may: some of the rivers seem a bit off, disconnected or meander in unnatural ways. Maybe it's my eyes or monitor though...I'm getting old

    My volcano experiment is here:

    My quick lil tutlet on volcanoes and canyons

    It's not the greatest since I now know how to do it better but this is a good intro course kind of thing to get the juices flowing.

    Thanks for the help, I'll post the new version of the map in progress tomorrow.
    It'll give me time to get read the tutorial through.
    Good night

    That's very nice. Re volcanoes in the bottom south east corner of the map you have a submerged feature that looks just like a volcano to me so (without knowing anything about the software your using) can you do the same but on land?

    Pretty map. I'd suggest making the water a bit darker, at the moment there are some areas where the water looks like it is above the land - but that might just be the SE lighting playing tricks on me

    Very pretty.
