    Default March Challenge Entry - Oh no! The color ran away!

    Started with the few quick doodles. I need to redo the outlines(and might remove one or both of the islands), basically, I was attempting to get a hand drawn feel using a stoked path(meaning varying line width), but it just ends up looking like crap no matter the settings I use.

    These are the 5th or 6th iteration of trees... the first ones look like horrible triangles, but I think I got them now. Basically, I am swapping between 400% zoom and full size to check out the trees.

    I WILL finish this challenge this time... no matter what..

    I am trying quite hard to model this after some of the B&W maps Mike Schley has done and posted on his site, with a little extra flair of my own.
