    Wip DeadClock7 request

    This is my playing around with DeadClock7's request.

    Basically, I just wanted to experiment on a regional map and haven't had the lightning strike I need to be working on my Big Apple entry so here is me playing around with it.

    I have to add rivers still and then go nuts creating borders I think

    I'll probably loose the canvas effect as well for something else.

    Them's some moody blues you've got going on there. Yummy colors. Want to see how it turns out!

    Sure, but we'll have to do something about those lakes in the middle there. Hmmm. Maybe I can make them into arroyos. Hehe, and I was thinking that was going to be a lush farmland in there.

    I was adding in rivers and such but I'll post this and then see about drying out the center area. Are you wanting forests on this because the example you showed didn't really have any trees other than indicated by the color of the land?

    Here's where we were.

    Take this with a huge grain of salt, since I am (semi-)colorblind, but I think I actually liked the brighter colors of the first pic. I do hink that the canvas texture was probably though, so you're better off without it.

    It's looking really nice and I find the colors really beautiful and gloomy (as Mearrin69 also has said).

    Thanks for the input. I'm not sure on the color at this point and certainly nothing is in stone. The main reason I changed the ocean color was to match more closely the example image DeadClock chose.

    I have added a desert, I think it came out pretty well. I also worked on my mountains a bit because the were fading out with the desert in the center.

    Edit: dangit, I hate it when the thumb doohicky goes wonky.

    And here is my attempt at making borders - I've never done this before LOL.

    Let me know DC if you want any of these changed around. We are going to need names as well for labels.

    Edit: I see a couple errors on here but I'm going to bed.

    I think that I would turn the Opacity down on the political regions a bit. Excellent map. Repped.

    There should be dense forests in the ne nw and sw, and scattered trees in the eastern seaboard.
