    Post Alternate American Colonization

    Here's an alternate history map showing a different colonization of eastern North America.

    This is an older map, and there's a couple of things I'd do differently if I was doing it today: I should've put a bit of blur on the landmass outlines, and used a glow or other effect around some of the text to make it pop a bit more. Still, I was mostly happy with it.

    I like the text. Agreed that the coastal outlines look a bit harsh. Overall I think you nailed a pretty good early colonial map style.

    i like the very old world feel of it. i've looked at more than a couple of those old maps and you captured the essence pretty well. the coasts don't really work for me, but like you said, if you were making it now

    Looks good. I approve with rep.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.
