    Wip The Shield Lands

    Here's something I just started working on. It's a region of Italian-esque city-states, republics, and duchies, bordered by harsh mountains to the north and south.

    Hey nice

    Really like the water effect, simple yet effective. My one only critique is that the water ripples seem a little out of place in the lakes, too prominent or something, but i'm not really familiar with this style so I could be wrong.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    I think it'll be okay (the ripples) when its finished. Once more stuff is filled in, it'll balance out. I tried erasing the ripples in the middle of the lakes, and it just ruins the effect, so I'm going to leave it as is for now...

    And here's another update, with some text added.

    Hey. That's looking pretty awesome. Lots of progress in a short time. I was going to comment earlier but now you've got two more WiPs. Looking forward to the finished product.

    Yeah, interesting blend of styles. Something I've not quite seen before.
