    Wip Map of Lyrath

    It's been a while since I was on here again. But, with the dawn of a new story comes a new map so. . .

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	parchment map1 copy.png

    This is what I've got so far. I made my own parchment stock and finally figured out how to use it. For once I'm going to take the hand drawn approach and draw all the mountains, forest, ect.

    I want some ideas about coloring the map though. It's all pretty much all arctic/snow and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of how to illustrate that? Or would keeping the parchment color be best? I don't really know. . .

    Also, I know the image is rather small but I don't have a clue how to get it any bigger without going over the file size limit (which is, as I understand, 5mb?). Any advice for this would be great too

    Critiques and ideas wholly welcome

    I think the mountains are too dark, or too densely packed ... at first I thought they were a gulf with a few islands, not a mountain chain!

    Otherwise, to reduce the size of the map, I recommend using the save-for-web function of photoshop and reducing the quality of the .jpg for the purposes of posting online.
