    Awsome idea, though It looks a little bit plain, add some hills / mountain / opening in the trees, villages, etc everywhere.

    I think that big city in the middle looks very strange.

    It does have the effect of looking over a big kingdom, but theres not enough people\places\groups of buildings\villages to look like a kingdom, just a few out of place looking buildings. Very nice though! :thumbs_up:

    If i were to add something, make some hills in the background, cuase its not that nice ti view the line where the map ends, i would suggest mountians, but you could also make the fog stronger and make it look like it fades into the distance..

    It's cool - but needs heights and some variation in the trees. Some big ones, with a couple of clearings in the forest, maybe with some huts and workers, and some smoke coming out of the forest would make it a lot better IMO.

    I love it. The rocky areas around the water need work. They seem too large for the rest of the terrain. The lake area looks good, but not the river.

    The rest is awesome. I absolutely love it for not only it's originality, but it's presentation as well. That sky really helps, without it, it would look pretty lame. You've blended sky and fog so well.

    the structures in the field seem a little spread out too much.. seems awkward.. and you should add some trees



    EDIT: oooo... thats not a field.. its a forest!

    Ahh, I noticed one thing that bothers me. The trees are all the same I think. Create some variation. It would look better IMO.
