    Wip Ilithuhn WIP

    So before I go posting this on the finished forum, I'd figure Id get your guys input on this map. I'm thinking about making the trees darker, but that will be a fair bit of work, so what do you guys think?

    thanks in advance!

    I think the tree color is fine, my suggestion would be to get rid of the 'olive-colored' circles around the city, etc. markers and replace it with a thin dark stroke.

    Agree with SG, the trees look fine to me too. My suggestion would be to ease on the white label and compass (maybe a little opacity?) and move the compass a little out of the way (maybe smaller and move bottom-down more). cheers!

    I'd reduce the stroke/outline around the text. Little 'over-the-top' in my opinion. A 1 or 2 pixel stroke/outline is probably enough.

    good grief, this went all the way to the second page.

    Anyways, lessened the outline around the text. better?

    also exported it as a png instead of a jpg

    Agreed. Especially the text. It looks much better.

    Cool map.

    Like the vectorstyled mountains. Have some rep for thinking outside the box.
