    Default Pixel-art map

    Did an experiment recently, something I've been thinking about for a while… A pixel-art map. I haven't put any thought into this really, it's just some very quick digital painting at low resolution, and I don't know where I'll go with it from here… It is fun to work on, though. Pending between labeling with a pixel-y font, and leaving it unlabeled…

    Not very happy with the shading around the rivers, it's made with a layer style and I couldn't quite get it to match the manually painted shadows/lights of the mountains, so I think I'll try to shade the rivers manually too.

    That's a recall for old gamers! I suggest the font "Hooge".

    @ Azelor: Yup, I know. Most are pretty illegible at 8px with no anti-aliasing though, so it's hard to find something that works That one was pretty nice though, will give it a try!

    @ Ilanthar: Hehe, I thought so Hooge is cool, I'll try that one too.

    Here's a small update, I've redone the shading on the rivers mainly. Also made some color adjustments, and tried a title font, "Sailor Stitch".
