Hi all,

This is my first post, and I'd like to ask a few questions.

Below is a mini-dungeon I created for a campaign. In the room with the red X, I'd like to create a platform. This platform should be natural-looking, not a simple black gradient or a stone platform. Do you have any suggestion on how I can achieve this?

Second, in the area with the green x. I gave the pool a little more depth with an inner shadow, but this looks very unnatural. How can I improve it?

Is there anything else I can do to make the map better?

Thank you very much,

I built this using gimp. Although saved as a png, I do have a file with the layers still split.
