    So, i'll drop Etrani Estate somewhere on this small island off the coast of Mercia. I'm trying REALLY hard to stick with one style. I've chosen to try doing a map in the Annual Dark Realms style. There are very few symbols in this set, but i do love the fills, so it'll be a pretty simple map with few elements other than settlements and forests. Here's where i am at so far. Suggestions?

    I love the fills in Dark Realms. I really like the way you make those soft, dreamy edges.

    Oh that's a nice frame! :)

    I can see what you mean about the fills. They are beautiful aren't they.

    Your artistic side is coming out in the careful placement and design in this map.

    I think i need to work on the labeling.....but this is pretty much close to done. Now on to the Villaggio di Calosirto!

    I can't see anything wrong with the labelling.

    But if you wanted to just experiment, how about using a slightly more transparent white glow?

    Sometimes its the sheer power of the contrast between black and white that seem to sort of... slightly overcook the effect

    What a pretty map!

    You really have a talent for finding and combining colors that work beautifully together.

    Thanks all!

    Well, i had a bit of a fall and after two days of rest i've just not the time, nor the inclination to finish a village map to get Etrani Estate in quite yet. So, here at least, is Ambracia :)

    Great map.
    Resting for two days after a fall doesn't sound pleasant, hope you are or will soon be ok.
