    More tweaking!

    I have added a couple of forests and changed the mountains slightly. Working in small sections to avoid repeating too much work but hopefully the top left is beginning to get there.

    Yeah, looks nice...diggin it.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I think this will be the last version of this map as i think it has done its job. With your help these mountains are my favorite black and white ones i have done. The pine forest, swamp and dunes have just been quickly added to flesh out the map a bit.

    Looks good! When you have some time to doodle, you should think about making more squiggly lines in your mountain shape instead of just an inverted V, just to see how you like the effect, as well as possibly making the shadow transitions squiggly also and not a straight line. It goes a long way toward making each mountain look distinct...
