    Wip Elosha

    Something I whipped up today just to keep in practice. I put the dread red letters in just to see if I could make them work. I'll finish it up tomorrow night.

    Whoa nice, very painterly. Not a big fan of the colour scheme but that's just personal preference, still nice colours though. What text is that, it fits perfectly with a fantasy map.

    I almost feel obligated to comment, since I'm usually the one that "complains" about the red lettering.

    It works well here because you've got enough of a glow/stroke around it so that it doesn't bleed into the green as well as it being larger size.

    Oh yeah...it's a pretty darn nice map as well

    I'm with ya on the red SG that's why I took it on to force it. Basically it's a mud color overlay with a red inner glow and gradient stroke of dark reds with a white outer glow. The font is Sanctuary...wanted something kind of spooky. Not too wild about the Ts being ankhs and no capital letters so maybe I'll change that tonight. The whole thing is pretty much a hybrid of my style combined with the Dragon Age style...or an attempt at least.

    I actually like that font, even with the ankh Ts

    Nice map, though I think the coastlines are extremely fractal-like. I like the 'blurry' map style, but the lettering pops out more than it should I think. The coloring works just fine though.

    Looks very cool, as always. I like the seas around the islands a lot. That blue is very vibrant. The shore does maybe look a little too "fractal", but its a very minor quip.

    Excellent points my friends. I was thinking the same thing about blurring the letters and symbols. On the coast I probably overdid it with the pixellate-crystallize filter...need to go back and run a noise-median on that to smooth it out just a tad.

    I have not much to add.
    The fractal coastlines were already addressed, and the blurriness of the vegetation is apparently done on purpose and should work nicely for printing purposes.
    The only thing apart from the coastline I would think about refining some more, personally, would be the transition from mountains to flatter terrain, especially in the wooded areas.

    Just my 2 cents.
