Well this is my first completed worldmap so far. I have tried a few other styles and tutorials but this one has worked out the best for me so far (thanks Tear!!). I am pretty happy with it so far but it still needs some work. Mainly the mountains need to redone to make them stand out more as the overall effect has turned out to soft. Other things to do:
1. Map border
2. Ocean floor texture rework
4. Navigation lines like Tears example (Saderan)
5. Magical storm / whirlpool effect for centre of map area (location pretty obvious)
Any other suggestions would be welcome.
