So it's probably a bit too early for me to be straying from tutorials and basic map-making, but it's in my nature to experiment and try to do something different/other than the norm. This is an experimental coloring and texture that I'm playing with. I haven't added any defining features to it yet; just basic land forms, an ocean, and somewhat defined coastlines.

What do you think about it? Could I potentially make a reasonably decent map with this (and if so what style would you suggest?), or is it wishful thinking and a bit too unorthodox? I'd really appreciate any suggestions on how to possibly improve on any elements of it that you find lacking. Thanks!
