    i don't know if it will help much with your particular style of map, but using the feather command helps me blend colors/lines etc

    What software? And is the size of your first attachment the final size? If not, can we see the full sized version(assuming it fits the forum upload limit of course)?

    Well.. technically, I think I am just few points shy to be considered genius level(thought i am close!). However, since I did not really invent the techniques, nor the software, what I truely am is a overtly zealous evangelist of trying the "darnedest" to never make destructive edits. Not always possible of course, but I look for it whenever I can. If I have to spend 5 extra minutes now, but can edit infinitely later with less effort, I would rather do that...
