    This is the map I chose for the Volcanic islands style. A very beginning, but comments please.

    Cool style! Is the sea also from it? Curious how this will continue. Some riffs would maybe be interesting?

    I'm curious to see what all you do with this. I've never seen anyone use this style except for the original competition that it came from.

    Mountain, cliffs and tower are pretty awesome! Great work! The texture of the land (farmland?) looks a bit like a pixel-salat, does it happen while rendering? I had the same problem with some fill styles.

    That pixelation usually stems from the fill style resolution in the map being wrong. To fix it, first run the FFIX command in the map to make sure all paths are correct, as paths using the old #-references doesn't work properly with the multi-resolution system, it is important that they all start with the @-reference instead (which FFIX will fix for you), then go into display speed settings and hit the fill style resolution button. The Volcanic Island should have the values 6, 2.4, 0.6, 0,12, but this may sometimes need to be adjusted furter if you have imported other fill styles, if so, start by trying to halve the values.

    Cool map Quenten, but I must confess that I feel that the DAZ3D/Poser figures really clash with the hand painted nature of the map style. But of course, it's your map so do what makes you happy. :)

    that's looking really good so far! What annual is that from? I've never seen this style before!

    Issues CA 88 Volcanic Islands, Ladiestorm.
    Sheassar, I see what you are getting at, but I confess I rather like them there.

    My latest offering. Some text labels to go. What do you think about the need for a frame? (I hate doing them, as I am not very good at it!)
    I think I have fixed the forest fill, and the intensity of the figures (representing the defeated Lady Fays, and the Dread Wizards of the Three Isles).

    I like story-telling maps and I like this map too. For me the figures are fine now! And I don‘t miss the frame. Cool map!

    Here is the finished product - and there is a frame after all.

    I like the smaller figures much better. ;)

    I also really like that you used the ocean fill for the frame. It frames the map without dominating the image. Perfect map!

    The final version which I have just submitted to Remy Monsen. I added some stars (the dark ones representing the three dread wizards, the three light ones representing the Lady Fays - and I just HAD to use pink for one - my wife's favourite colour.

    Number of wizards in the atlas now increased by three. Thanks Quenten.

    Remy, how many wizards were there before? I can only get 1 (Jim's one in Forlorn Isles).

    Another delightfully excellent effort Quenten! The frame's ideal.
