    I decided that this island off of the southern coast of Alarius would be my next Atlas project from my list of reserved places. I've just started working on it so am very much open to suggestions. :)

    Nice, Shessar.

    I haven't looked where this is on the Atlas, but it immediately looks tropical. I see beaches and tropical vegetation, a verdant central highland - now I'm just wondering what is going to make it Holy?

    Looking forward to seeing the finished piece.

    Thanks for commenting. :)

    The location is off of the southern coast of Alarius, right along the equator. Compared to Alarius, it is an island, but in truth it is about 1000 miles long and 250 miles wide on average, so a very large island. What makes it holy? That is up to the person who uses it for their game of course, but I envision it as the gathering place of the forces of light as they strive to defeat the darkness that has taken over The Scar in the east.

    Anyway, here is my latest update. I still have a lot to do on this map.

    Easter Island? :)

    I really like the way you place your trees, Shessar. They are always very natural in appearance.

    Oh I really like what you've done with the ocean :)

    Is that a fill from one of the annuals/third party sets, or is it some very cleverly handled solid polys?

    Beautiful map :D

    The Holy Isle of Mona is now available in the atlas. Thanks for another great contribution Gerri.

    Thanks Remy.

    Thanks Sue. The ocean is simply overlapping polygons of the Solid10 fill over a water fill. I use blur and transparency effects to blend them together a bit. Sometimes I'm not quite sure what to do with big expanses of ocean and this breaks it up, at least a little. :)
