Another update. Added a castle etc. 80 layers at this point (incl. adjustment layers).
This is looking wonderful. Keep up the good work.

Ok this is looking mighty sweet!! You are gonna be up doing the tree tutorial right Castle / fortification is cool! So what's the game plan here?
Thanks for all the comments! Here's another update. Don't have a lot of time right now but hoping to have this finished soon.
Great work! No zoomable version of the last update?
Is this just a test of the style? Can't fault how pretty it looks (it looks wonderful), but layout is another thing depending on the "in world" history. For example, it looks heavily forested immediately around the castle which makes it harder to defend (the very close treeline makes it easier for attackers). On the otherhand a castle that never sees/never expects attack/is built intention in a pretty place intentionally is a different matter.
(In my setting I have a story-centric castle built in the woods and the owner refuses to have the forest cleared because it is pretty and would defile the weald and the sanctity of the surroundings.)
