I've been working on producing a world map in Photoshop using Tear's Saderan tutorial.

It's all looking good (aside from a few artifacts in the rivers), at least to my untrained eye, but I'm struggling as soon as I start putting vegetation, tree colouring on it. I've used Tear's methods and putting a gradient color layer on, but I'm not happy with either really.

I've attached the map here, with a little tree colouring on the tip of the northern continent in place. I'd really appreciate some advice on how to improve on this - I'm using a splatter brush and just a couple of green colours.
