    Wip World Map

    well... i just spent some crazy hours to revamp the coastlines again... and my process is still glitchy... because some of my outlines are way too thick... showing too much black, so when i have more energy there will be more edits...

    but overall i am enjoying the shape of things...

    the west side might need some work though...

    ...okay, maybe i will never be happy and i should just be okay with it...

    Yay! It's about time you got back onto this map. I love the style of this and like seeing the updated to it. Overall the coasts look great apart from a few areas where the stroke goes almost black, but couldn't that be sorted out with just a low opacity eraser on it?

    Wip

    This is a test of a river style...

    the black line around them looked too bold, so i put the rivers in a new layer and gave them a soft glow...

    the river placement needs work, but what do folks think of the general look?

    I'd have said line them with black but drop the opacity of the black so that they weren't as "BOING" black. Fade the black out with length until you get to the source.

    You might be right mr. Juggernaut...

    thinner and semi-transparent black lines might be the way to go...

    i might take a stab at drawing some of your Game Races, especially if you will credit me and give a link to my website if you release it...

    happy holidays everyone, I am not likely to post much until January now!

    Wip home country of Istarnia - with roads!

    Well... I have a game tonight, so here is the revamped home nation... it has a light black outline for rivers and roads that glow!

    Maybe those roads should not glow so much, but i was in a hury.

    Merry Christmast!

    I think the roads look fine, nice balance.

    Wip more river tests

    This is me trying to figure out rivers still...

    i am trying to decide if they look too white... or if the basic shape and style looks good.

    this is focused around the nation of Kashem, which is full of rivers, jungle, and swampland... one of the few lush areas on my world... which now seems to be called El'eshan.

    Wip whole world...

    this is the whole world... so far... it takes a long time to make one of these when i keep on changing things... but it has the general shape, and I have been learning how to make edits quicker as I play with the program.

    happy new year!

    I prefer the bluer rivers like around Brundarlund but I know some want their rivers to blend into the coastal glow. How to reconcile the two is the problem so I airbrush some color (new layer) onto mine with a layer mask - leaving the isthmus blend into the coast and the interior parts have the color that I want.
