    Default The world of Teodd

    Hi all,

    This is commissioned map.

    Somme river forks, I know... I have to follow the hand sketch.

    But my purpose is to work on forests texture and colours.

    Enjoy, C&C welcomed

    Overall I think it's a pretty darn nice job.

    The basic grass color is a little neon-y for my tastes but that's a minor thing.

    You've got a really good start on this. The greens are a little intense, but the longer I look at it, the more they grow on me. I really like the shape you've given the terrain/coasts, but I think the mountains could use some work. They look to me like rock walls. And is it my allergies, or is the full-size map looking a little blurry?

    It's not your allergies. The text is really crisp, but some of the terrain is overly blurry.

    Pretty much agree with what's been said but regarding the forests (which is really what you seemed to be looking for) it seems a bit flat. You might want to generate some cloud noise beneath the forested areas to give them some depth so it's not quite so one-colored. Might want to hit it with some burn/dodge as well. Noise can also create little flecks that can look a bit like leaves if you tint them correctly.

    I like they layout you have going with the land and so on, keep up the good work.
