    Default August/September Entry: Lands of the Leaking Lakes

    I know. It's not very original, but I don't care, just had to do it I'm not nearly finished yet, but I thought I should lay out first draft before anyone else steals my idea

    Looks great! I love your choice for mountains! I would use that style if I could draw

    Those mountains look fantastic so far. This will be a real good challenge map if you continue with this pace

    Hehe, thanks everyone ^^ I guess I'll have to thank Peter for his guide then http://www.brodt.dk/peter/mount.html

    Anyway, got around and updated the map, added some forest (wich took AGES btw) and made the background black.. Ehm... Yeah, I updated the falling water on "Ever Fall", and I guess I'm going to do the same on "Great Blue" soon.

    And the names. Just quickly sketched down since I was in the creative mood, I will draw small cities for every city, ruin, monastry whatever.

    Btw, does anyone has any suggestions for what font I can use? :\

    I saw Manose and immediately thought of Gwydion of Manosse (Ashe) from the Elizabeth Haydon books (one of my fave characters - I tell my nieces that I'm half dragon too). I think the waterfalls need something - they're kind of straight and flat, they need some foam and some squiggles and highlights or something. As far as fonts go, man, there's too many to pick from so it's personal preference.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Manose as in, make no sence ^^ I've never read any books of Elizabeth Hayden

    In the newest version I have updated the waterfalls so they don't look like icicles any more

    Okey, I think I'm finished

    (Btw, I see that everyone else has started their threadname with "August/September Entry:" - Is this very important? Because if it is - how do I change it?)
