    Okay, first of all, it's hilarious you said that about the colors because when I first looked at the map and not your comments I said to myself, "Wow--those colors are awesome!" Hahahaha. I guess I just showed where my wagon's parked, didn't I. (and PS: watch whose color palette you "bleah," buddy! )

    Del--that advice is golden. Have some rep.

    OK - think this in almost done Here are two variation, one with the colours punched up a bit, and the second with the inking set to overlay rather than multiply. What is the preference?

    Thanks for the tips on digital inking. I might have to give it another go...

    (Lesson learned 3....decide up front if you want to ink shadows, or colour them )

    I agree with the Cartographist. I think if you gave the trees and grass an autumn look it would really pop nicely.

    Other than that I think it's looking great.

    Concerning the two that you just posted. Number one looks better in my eyes. The second one just seems to have to much glow to it. There are points where it looks better because of the glow, but as an overall piece applied to everything, it kinda takes away more then it gives.

    So my vote for #1.

    The red/orange color, adds the the diversity, yes, but it almost makes it look as if the trees have some sort of disease. >_<

    lol all joking aside, if you can blend in a little more yellow/brown on the tress, it probably wont look like such a drastic difference. Right now it just looks a little to unnatural.

    RobA - Of the three new variations (Left, Right, and Autumnal), I prefer the Left. While I did suggest some oranges and reds, after looking at 'Left', I don't think you need to go the Autumnal route.

    I think that the additional colors that you used in 'Left' were what I had in mind. I really like the update and think that the map is done.

    the 1st one looks the best imo, but the 2nd one looks ... the most real? I like some parts of it a lot more.

    The autumn one is as kagehito said, disease ridden

    I like the multiplied blend better. The vibrant colors suit this style better, I think.
