Nice work so far, like the hilly areas.
You almost had the ### wip tags right, I have added the correct tags to your last post (the only one that really matters for this) and you can use the same tags for any future posting of images.
Thank you Jaxilon!!
Im almost done. Have some doubts about the colors: should I use a brown coloration, or a more diverse color range? The two first maps were color filtered, my last version isn't.
What I'm happy with: I was worried that woods would hide the terrain below, that's common in a lot of maps (so you can see the trees, but not if there is a mountain or hill or valley, etc.); i'm quite satisfied with the result, given the time it took to me. I also think the woods properly are fine, and so are the hills and mountains.
What I'm not so happy with: the sea; the rivers and how they join the sea. Maybe the towns and keeps, I have to consider alternatives; the road. And given that this is a map for a chalenge about a journey, I think the map is a bit out of focus: maybe too much visual information (it could have been lighter, allowing a text with the notes from the journey). Perhaps I will be able to correct some of this, we'll see.
I hope I got it right:

Somehow it looks like you got tagged as spam. Not sure what that means unless someone just accidently reported your posting as spam. I think you are ok but I'll try to verify that.
I had the same issue with putting up my second update, though the post did eventually show up. I wasn't sure if it was because I used the quick reply option or just because it was my second post total, in my own thread without any other replies. My guess would be the latter, if you had the same problem I did.
BTW, your map looks great, especially looking at the progress from the first WIP to the final version. Looks like it came together really quick!
Very nice and pleasant-looking map ! How did you do the mountains ?
Keep u p the very good work !
The terrain is made with 4 layers in PS: the base with the grass texture, a valley layer (bevel&emboss low, fill none), a hill layer and a mountain layer (both bevel&emboss high, fill none)
