    Map Trying something new

    I am experimenting with a new style of map. This is my first sample. This is just a test map, and I am just trying some new styles with it.

    Anyway, does this look like it will make a fairly attractive map?

    Your shadows are a bit intense. I'd probably prefer them to be about half as dark as they are now. But your rivers look awesome. Nice work.

    Perhaps an outline to define the shore a little more. I like the mountains.

    I like your style

    If this is you trying out something new, you are a great mapper by any standard, it took me ages to make something that good!

    Add more detailed textures and maybe tone down the shadows a bit and you have something very good indeed IMHO.

    Interesting to see that you have made the same mistake I have made with my Greyhawk project..lol. If north is up that is.

    Keep up the good work!

    I was thinking the same thing about the shadows. I will back them down a bit.

    Thanks for the compliment Anna. I love your work on the Greyhawk maps. Can't wait for them to be done!
    I never even thought about the shadow direction! Thanks for pointing that out.

    Looks very nice to me. I'd have to see it with less shadows to comment on that, right now, it has real gaming-feel to it.
