    Default Argyros: The Thousand Isles

    I'm getting sick of and burned out by my other projects, so I thought I'd start ANOTHER map to relax. Yeah, right.

    This is (pretty obviously) heavily influenced by Greece. I started out with a bog-standard atlas map of Greece, traced it, and altered it where I saw fit. We'll see where it goes. I swear to Hades I WILL draw my own mountains for this one.

    haha! I'm right there with you Diamond. I have an uncountable number of maps floating around in various states of un-finish. No time to count them.

    I know Eilathen will hate these mountains, but never fear! I plan to add some shading to them, probably a soft brown to indicate shadow on one side. What are your thoughts on the mountains, and on the crosshatching? Thanks to Rob for the pattern, by the way.
