    Wip Tephra WIP - Critiques Requested

    Hey y'all - it's my first post in a while. I'm pretty sure I've just been a lurker for the past year. In any case, I come asking for your expert opinions.

    This is my world map that I've recently been re-adjusting. I was rather unhappy with the previous styles I was using and decided to go with something a little more fanciful, less pseudo-realistic. This map is heavily a work-in-progress. The central continent has a whole truckload of lore to go with it, but the rest of the continents we're still playing with.

    I just want to know what y'all think - am I going in a good direction, should some things be altered, what's good and what's bad?



    To note, I've used the following tutorials:
    - How to Make a Flag: http://www.photoshopsupport.com/elem...ement-map.html
    - Tapering Rivers by Arcana: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=2711
    - ISO Mountains by jfrazierjr: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=3717
    - Antique Maps by Ascension: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=3806
    - Making Maps by jezelf: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=2557
    - I think my compass rose was inspired by GamerPrinter's map, which he posted at the CBG.

    Currently I'm debating on whether I want to add trees or not, and if so, how. I've tried about a half-dozen different styles of portraying trees on this map, and I don't care for any of them yet. I've also reconsidering the flags. Perhaps it's just the way they're displayed right now that I don't care for.

    In any case, I would love your critiques! Thanks
