    Default Altamira - Color Version

    I colored my B&W entry for this month's challenge. I wanted to keep it simple and not too 'painterly'; turned out okay, I think.

    I love it! I dig the B&W version too, but I think this is a really nice coloring, and I prefer it (as good as the B&W is).

    Turned out pretty lovely! In what programme did you do the colouring? The original b/w looked vectorish ... this, now ...

    I liked the b&w, love the colorized. Spiffy use of color.

    I love this style of map. Any chance we can get you to create that mountain brush and post it. This could solve my inability to draw a convincing mountain.

    Both were done in PS CS2.

    I've been meaning to for the last like five months and haven't got around to it yet...

    As always, i dig the landshapes. And the mountains (of course).
    Are those the same mountains as in your successor states of the old empire-map? They look similar. I am always torn between those mountains and those you used in your Guthult map
    And brushes would be awesome!
