    Wip August 2013 Entry- The Mighty Ynchong Empire

    I will redraw my entry for the October 2009 challenge. The theme was 'Trade' and I did a map of an Asian styled empire.

    The old map and a first outline for the new version.

    The old map looks pretty darn good, be interesting to see what you improve.

    Don't forget the ### thingy ###

    Looking pretty great already. You can definitely see the improvement/refinement of your style.

    Are you using the same canvas size as the original?

    Yes, but I had to shrink the file to fit the upload limit.

    I agree with Larb. I still remember your first stab at a painterly style. Your color blending and contour work has definitely very much improved. This looks to be a very lovely piece. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Cheers,

    Next update. Labels added and legend completed. I kept the border deliberately simple, but I'm not sure if it is too simple now.

    I'm thinking of adding a junk or two as deco.
