    Wip Coments on this?

    Hey this is my second map that I made. I'm wondering if any one has any comments on it. Is the style good or should I pursue another path to mapping success?

    To be honest. . . it looks like a bunch of filters. It gives the basic idea of there being land there, but I don't see how it would be useful to anyone trying to navigate by it.

    I personally prefer a more literalistic approach though. If you put some borders and labels and outlines this could very well pass the sniff test, but right now I just see colors.

    Look forward to your next attempt though! I encourage and appreciate your out-of-the-box thinking here, it just doesn't much appeal to me.

    Of the three styles of land masses, I like the upper right one that looks like a blasted desert - it would be great for a sci fi or post apocalyptic feel. It looks much more realistic than the other two.

    I am a big fan of the fact you are trying new things. I agree that the filter situation feels a little too heavy, but only because it seems slightly unfinished. I would maybe now filter again (if using PS) with an artistic filter (maybe posterize?) that reduces the others a tad.

    Then again, if this is not a fantasy map, but more of a sci-fi map of sorts, this avenue maybe should be pursued rather than muted. Right now (aside from the border) this almost looks like some sort of geothermal or other satellite shot.

    I say full speed ahead--keep playing & post some other shots of your play here because I want to see 'em!

    OK i did some artistic filters in PS, would this be a good basic map, not really to navigate by but just for shape and geological regions, aka desert, forest, plain, ect...?
