Yeah, that worked... ::sigh::
So, I'm experimenting with doing an illustration-style map (but not very quickly, I'm afraid!). I have no idea where this is really going, but the journey is starting out well.
Looks good, reminds me of a ZombieNirvana map but that might be unintentional... still looks great... can't wait to see what's next
Yes, indeed, Butch Curry got me started, but I'm already to the point where I've taken off into my own world. Heh. Good eye.
So here's the next portion, complete with sea, roads (that I'm not thrilled with. Yet.), building wannabes, and some FIELDS! How do they look? Is the style maintained? The object clear? (I mean, no one is going to be mistaking those fields for mountains or something, eh? LOL)
(Alas, Del, no scale. Sorry!)
I *swear* I am cursed by the Attachment Manager! My picture is in there ::pointing:: but it never ever ever posts with my first attempt to post it! AUGH!
It's marvelous! The fields look quite right to me, and I like the font you've chosen--it matches the style quite well.
Are you planning on painting the roofs? The silhouette look is at odds with the rest of the map, but not so much as to make it look bad.

after you attach and either close the window, or come back to the advanced reply, then click on the paperclip Icon at the top middle, the arrow drop down, and highlight the attachment you just uploaded... you should have a couple of ATTACH Tags wrapped around a number...
see if that doesn't insert it in on a first try
Your right.. the buildings now detract somewhat from the feel of the map... I don't know how big you originally had planned for this map ... mainly cause there ISN'T ANY SCALE
If you have your buildings on a separate layer, I would just go ahead and either get rid of them and start over, nestling them around the forest... and try for a different more complimentary style of house.
And, probabyl me being a nitpick... but the water needs to be reworked... I can see the brush pattern you used... maybe this is the effect you were going for but it looks as if it was just kinda ... slopped over... or.... you just ain't got that far yet and i'm jumping ahead of myself
Glad that inline attachment worked... maybe upgrade you browser ? did it post alright before? or have you always had to post twice to get a pic to show up?
