    Post Experiment

    So I was messing around with geocontrol, I have to thank Pasis, for the reminder on how great a program it is, but well this is my first go at it, and I don't really know how to make a "city" worth while still messing around but this is the basic of if, any help, idea, comments are welcome! Also I don't think the scale is right at all...

    p.s. Mountains by Geocontrol, all the rest done by Photoshop

    So I messed around a little bit more, used Ascension's Forest, and a little of his roads on his Town Tutorial, but still working around different ideas, But any comments would be grand!

    I like this a whole bunch. The mountains look stellar, but I think the woods could be done a bit differently. The thick black outline doesn't really fit with the overall look. Try removing it and maybe put a drop-shadow on the forest, to give it some perspective. Then it'd really fit in nicely, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the input, I kind of wanted to wrap it up, so I put a few finishing touches on it, did a little tweak to the tree (I like the trees, but I think I may want to do another style... I'll play with it another time) but I think I'll call it done, and start on a larger town...

    I think it looks nice, you get a great idea of the general area. The coat of arms looks nice too (I love a bit of heraldry on maps!). I think the text might be better with a more neutral white glow rather than yellow though but that's just my preference. Also border! I think many maps would benefit from a border even if it's only a simple 2-3px two-colour affair.

    Still just minor things and again, personal preference. Great map.

    I agree that the mountains look great. Almost look like photographs.

    Hey looking good, the mountains are great and the insignia is even better, make smy attempts at insignias look like crap. Repped.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    Hey Thanks everyone! Hopefully I can get this into a larger scale map, well this style atleast! haha got to remember how I pulled it off! But hopefully like most things I do, I can replicate it just fine.
