    My method is concerned with taking shapes you already know and breaking them up somewhat.

    Looking great so far btw, Tear. As always. I fear another map on the horizon to make all us lesser mortals weep.
    Very nice work Tear. I hope my project comes out 10% as cool as yours!

    What does an adjustment threshold layer do? And how do you do it in PS?

    It shows the layers below it as pure black and white depending on the brightness of the colors. You can set the threshold of the brightness where they get separated.

    You can insert a Threshold Adjustment Layer with Layer -> New Adjustment Layer -> Threshold...

    That's looking very cool. I like how the under-sea textures are kind of subtle. The land forms really pop.

    Looks very sweet, Tear.
