I always did like to bite off more then i could chew. So this is it - my start. I think i have several maps that have gotten to this point - yet never any (digitally) that have gone beyond. So I'm posting it here as a work in progress. Just let my instincts take over and combine a lot of what i had read in several tutorials and this is what i came up with.

It's a much larger image then what i'm posting, so it will have a lot of detail - i'm some what of a perfectionist - which explains my inability to practice. The urge to get it right the first time is a hard one to overcome.

Anything you can say, recommend or add will be helpful.

*I'm not to happy with the ocean texture. I'll need to figure out a way to make it more to my liking. But I'm going to retire for the night. Or early morning...
