Well, here's Kan'thral, or the Land of the Pixies. I still need to add a few things, such as names for places, and more map details (like forests), but this is only the first draft.

Looks like a good start, Stormcrow! Especially the outlines and seas are very well done! But there are some things you should try to improve:

- The mountains shout for a smudge tool - smaller could also look better
- the lakes could also need improvement (shallow water at the borders) - color them with light gray, then simply use a darker airbrush in the center
- Don't forget about the last part of the Coastline tutorial, smudging the coasts into the land: Use a large brush at the smudge tool for that - smudge only with the border of the smudge tool, very softly...
- Rivers become broader, which means that at their source they are very small
- The colors of the coastlines are a bit too dark methinks and too intense.

Well, tried to point out things which could help to make the result even better. Continue on, Stormcrow!

Okay, thanks Art. This will hopefully make all future maps, if any, better. As well as this one, but I don't seem to be having much time to work on Santharia lately. I don't quite know why, but I will get around to it soon.

Where do you see this being located in relation to other landmasses?  Or is it perhaps one of those mist enshrouded islands that is real, but due to it's difficulty to find is thought a myth?
