    Wip Republic of Virginia

    Well, dusted off CC3 and decided to get back to some mapping; this time the Republic of Virginia for my Savaged! New World campaign.

    Notations of what I've done so far:

    1) I'm very happy with the way the ocean and its various fills has turned out.
    2) I'm pretty happy with the forest and settlement symbols...sort of a water color type look.
    3) I need to work on the background texture for the land. I need to find something that complements the water color feel of the current symbols.
    4) Something, not sure what, seems to be lacking with the rivers.

    The next steps for this map are as follows:

    1) Label the current settlements, need to pick a good font for this.
    2) My toughest quest...find mountain symbols that suit the map and combine well with the land color. I'm willing to tweak the land color if needed.
    3) Label various regions, oceans, mountains, etc.

    I look forward to all comments, suggestions, critiques, etc.

    perhaps the rivers need the width to vary, start with them narrower and have them get wider as they flow and collect more water,,,some type of bank to them would be nice too. SeerBlue

    Looks good so far.

    A glow on the Rivers would be nice, as well as a slight blur effect on the water sheet to eliminate the Harsh fill style there.

    Well, did some tweaking and took some of the comments into consideration; I also think I've settled on a mountain style...typically my biggest stumbling block. More comments and suggestions if you please...more work to come.

    I like those mountains a lot. I've been pondering ISO mountains but have never seen anything I really like until now. Good job.

    I'm sorry to say I don't think those mountains fit very well with the rest of the map... it feels somewhat out of place.
